| Formsprag Clutch |

GFK Series


Model GFK is a sprag type clutch integrated into a 59 Series ball bearing.

This design provides high torque capacity for minimal outside diameter.

It is a bearing supported type, shipped grease lubricated.

Oil bath lubrication is also possible if the original grease is first removed by flushing the clutch with a suitable solvent.

Whatever the lubrication type, seals should be provided, as illustrated below.

Torque transmission must be ensured by a press fit assembly into a rigid outer housing with R6 tolerance, and onto a shaft with p5 tolerance.

The total press fit on the GFK should not exceed the internal clearance for the model as listed in the Internal Clearance Column.
