Meritor adds high-torque aftermarket clutch

June 28, 2013

Meritor has expanded its aftermarket solutions with a new high-torque 15.5-in. clutch for medium- and heavy-duty trucks.

The clutch, which is 15.5 in. x 2 in./10 spline/7 spring item, is available from warehouse distributors stocking Euclid-brand parts. It is available in an easy-pedal model and comes with a 24-month/unlimited mileage warranty against defects in material and workmanship.

“Truck operators of all sizes want a complete solution for drivetrain systems,” said Bill Statham, senior manager, drivetrain products, Aftermarket, Meritor. “Our new Euclid high-torque, easy-pedal clutch is reliable, dependable and long-lasting. These characteristics are what customers demand and our products are designed to exceed those expectations.”

The clutch offers a maximum torque of 2,250 lbs.-ft. and provides superior vibration control (dampening) for reduced drivetrain torsional rate, a heavier-duty back plate that keeps springs from wearing faster which reduces maintenance cost and downtime, and a strap-driven pressure plate, which reduces noise and delivers smoother release, Meritor said.
