Marine Gears Introduces 'TR' Series Marine Clutches

—Free Brochure Available— Marine Gears, Inc., Greenville, Miss., is offering the new Haley MGI "Torsionally Resilient" Marine Clutch in ten sizes ranging from 800 to 6,250 hp.

Available in stock and ready for immediate delivery, all "TR" Series Marine Clutch components—rims, tubes and shoes—are designed and manufactured to meet Haley MGI's exacting engineering and production standards, then combined inplant and tested to meet performance specifications.

According to the company, the "TR" Series is subjected to rigorous testing for torsional resilience, damping coefficient, radial stiffness and maximum torque capability by registered professional engineers of the Mechanical Engineering Department of Mississippi State University.

As for the components of the "TR" Series Clutch, the torsionally resilient air gland tube is made of durable neoprene elastomer, reinforced with eight-ply polyester cord, formed and cured on Haley MGI designed and constructed precision molds. The tube provides excellent strength, durability and torsional resilience.

Marine Gears reports that whether a new rim rolled and finishmachined by MGI, or a rim remanufactured with new welded replacement registers finish-machined to original tolerances, every "TR" Series Marine Clutch rim meets equally exacting engineering and manufacturing standards.

The air gland tube is formed, cured and bonded onto the rim resulting in a rim-tube combination which provides a tough torsionally resilient air gland foundation for excellent friction shoe positioning, before, during and after clutch engagement.

MGI, founded in 1973, also offers Haley "TB" Series Clutches for use in exceptional high-torque applications.

The "TB" Series is very versatile because they are interchangeable with all torque bar series marine clutches. The hard rubbercoated torque bars and inductionhardened side plate holes reduce wear.

MGI claims that excluded aluminum shoes provide higher strength and reduced weight. "TB" Series clutches and drums are available in stock for immediate delivery in new or remanufactured sizes 14-inch through 32-inch "TB" wide series and 20-inch through 42-inch "TB" narrow series. Split tubes are also available.

Marine Gears, Inc., an American Gear Manufacturers Associationcertified manufacturer, offers a wide range of marine clutches, as well as marine gears. For a free brochure detailing MGI products, Circle 68 on Reader Service Card
