Tungsten Alloy for Centrifugal Clutch

Tungsten alloy centrifugal clutch is made of tungsten heavy alloy, which consists of W-Ni-Cu, W-Ni-Fe, or even W-Ni-Cu-Fe. Tungsten content ranges from 90% to 97%. Tungsten alloy centrifugal clutch is a clutch that uses centrifugal force to connect two concentric shafts, with the drivitungsten alloy for centrifugal clutchng shaft nested inside the driven shaft. It engages more at higher speeds.

What Is Centrifugal Clutch?

Centrifugal clutch is often used on a small engine. Using springs and weights to engage, tungsten alloy centrifugal clutch is activated by engine speed and revolutions per minute (RPMs). By changing springs of a different tension, the centrifugal clutch can be made to engage sooner or later in the RPM range. Mounted on the engine's output shaft, the centrifugal clutch has a sprocket affixed to its backside and drives a chain connected to the drive axle or wheel. This clutch system was most used on go-carts and mini-bikes in place of torque converter and a drive belt. Engine has high RPMs. Centrifugal clutch made of tungsten alloy can be used for a longer time for its high hardness and good wearing resistance. When centrifugal clutch activates, it generates high temperature. Tungsten alloy can withstand high temperature for its high melting point.

Tungsten alloy centrifugal clutch consists of two pieces, an inner clutch mechanism and an outer shell. The inner mechanism spins on the engine's output shaft while the outer shell and its attached sprocket remains still. As the engine's RPMs are increased, weights that are held in place by springs are thrown outward by the centrifugal force of the spinning mechanism, hence the moniker centrifugal clutch. As the weights reach their fully extended positions, they contact the outer shell and begin to drive it similar to releasing the clutch in an automobile. As the centrifugal clutch begins to spin faster, the vehicle begins to come up to speed. Compared with other materials, tungsten alloy has the advantage of high density. It can reduce size to limited space in vehicle and improve sensitivity of control mechanism.

Tungsten alloy centrifugal clutch is often used in mopeds, underbones, lawnmowers, go-karts, chainsaws, mini bikes, and some paramotors. More information, please visit: (Thanks Wikipedia show us the details about centrifugal clutch.)
