CB element assembly is designed and manufactured to provide dependable clutch or brake service in a multitude of industrial applications. It is suited to high speed, cyclic operations, as well as for coupling and general power transmission. All torque load is carried through the neoprene and cord actuating tube which absorbs damaging shock loads. The CB element assembly requires no lubrication or adjustment.
CB element assemblies are available for drum diameters from four inches through 45 inches. The element size designation indicates the nominal outside drum diameter in inches, the clutch model, and the width of the friction material. For example, size “12CB350″ indicates the element operates on a drum having a nominal diameter of 12 inches, is a ”CB” series clutch or brake (the scope of this manual) and has friction material which is three and one-half inches wide.
Where diametral space is limited, or the torque required is greater than a single element can transmit, CB elements size 12CB350 and larger can be supplied as dual units.
