A large mine grinding mill OEM required a centrifugal clutch solution for a new SAG mill. The clutch’s primary role is to allow for smooth, controlled starts during mill startup. It provides protection against the shock loads which occur during the starting of a rigidly coupled mill drive.
A U.S. open pit coal mine operator needed a replacement centrifugal clutch for its primary feeder breaker. The feeding and crushing machine utilizes a “flight chain” that moves the coal from a large tipped hopper into a rotating breaker head that crushes the coal into various sizes.
