Meritor Inc has unveiled its line of 14- and 15.5-inch clutches in standard and easy-pedal effort models, designed for medium- and heavy-duty trucks. Both models will be available under the company’s Euclid brand through North American distribution centers.

Truck operators can purchase the new clutches from warehouse distributors stocking Euclid parts. The clutches offer end-users a 24-month/unlimited-mileage warranty against defects in material and workmanship.

These Euclid clutch offerings from Meritor include:

•VelveTouch ceramic clutch buttons

•An easy adjuster permitting fast, single-motion adjustment (standard on all 15.5-inch easy pedal effort models)

•All disc springs are treated with a cryogenic process, which extends disc spring life

•A sealed throw-out bearing for increased lubrication intervals and longer clutch life

The 15.5-inch clutch assemblies come with seven-, eight-, nine-, and 10-spring disc designs with torque ratings from 1250 to 2050 foot-pounds; 14-inch clutch assemblies are provided with torque ratings from 620 to 1400 ft-lbs.
