FLORENCE, Ky. — Meritor grew its aftermarket clutch offering by adding a self-adjusting 15.5” model to its current Euclid line for medium- and heavy-duty trucks, the company announced this week.
Customers can now purchase the new clutch, which includes 15.5” x 2” models with seven springs or nine springs in four- and six-paddle options, from warehouse distributors stocking Euclid-branded parts.
“The self-adjusting model helps round out our Euclid clutch portfolio by offering more options to end users, especially those looking to avoid manual clutch adjustments,” said Jessica Sendelbach, product manager, Drivetrain for Meritor. “The new unit is technician-friendly and offers ease of installation while eliminating the downtime typically associated with regular clutch adjustments.”
The self-adjusting model includes new over-adjustment prevention technology and patent-pending Actively Expanding Seal (AES) that provides anti-contamination enclosure, self-locking worm gear to ensure positive adjustment.
The Euclid clutch catalog has also been updated to include the self-adjusting clutch and features the specification and ordering process for customers, visuals with component descriptions, flywheel gauge and adjustment tool instructions and current cross reference details.
