The VC element assembly is specifically designed and manufactured for severe clutch or brake applications on heavy equipment where high starting loads or sustained slippage would normally lower clutch or brake efficiency and reduce operating life. Constricting action and ventilated construction make high torque capacity and rapid heat dissipation possible.
All VC element assemblies are supplied with long wearing, NON-ASBESTOS friction material.
Dalin element assemblies are available for drum diameters from 11.5 inches through 76 inches. The element size designation indicates the nominal drum diameter in inches, the clutch model and the width of the friction material. For example, size “38VC1200” indicates the element operates on a drum having a nominal diameter of 38 inches, is a“VC” series clutch or brake (the scope of this manual) and has friction material which is 12 inches wide.
Where diameter space is limited, or the torque required is greater than a single element can transmit, all sizes of VC elements can be supplied as dual units.
