Conveyor Holdback Clutches
SRV Engineering offers the most complete and versatile selection of Holdbacks in the industry, most with excellent availability and competitive prices.
Holdback Clutches are precision devices which lock the inner and outer races through the wedging action of cams to transmit torque in one direction of rotation and overrun in the opposite direction. Depending upon their application, these units are sometimes referred to as Freewheels, Sprags, Overrunning, Backstop or One Way Clutches.
Manufactured in Japan, Tsubaki Holdbacks have been used by major Australian industrial companies for over 30 years. These companies include Pilbara Iron, Argyle Diamonds, BHP Worsley Alumina & Alcoa
Typical applications include
- Belt conveyors for mining, mineral, metals, timber, pulp, power stations etc
- Bucket elevators for cement, grain etc
- Ventilation fans
- Screw Pumps
SRV Engineering can review your existing holdback application and offer a suitable replacement for those troublesome, obsolete models / brands
Our engineering staff offer an on site inspection service and survey of your holdbacks. Customers have found this helpful as we regularly find holdbacks operating well outside their intended speed / torque ratings. Running holdbacks above their capabilities has the potential to endanger life and equipment.
With the introduction of the dual cam, bearing supported “HS” design and improved lubrication you benefit from extended maintenance periods
