Electromagnetic Clutches and Couplings contains a detailed description of U.S.S.R. electromagnetic friction clutches, magnetic couplings, and magnetic particle couplings. This book is divided into four chapters. The first chapter discusses the design and construction of magnetic (solenoid-operated) couplings, which are very quick-acting devices and used in low power high-speed servo-systems. Chapter 2 describes the possible fields of application, design, construction, and utilization of magnetic particle couplings. The aspects of construction, design, and utilization of induction clutches (slip clutches), which provide the solution to the problems of speed control with ventilator loads, are covered in Chapters 3 and 4. The last chapters also include a brief discussion on the construction, design, and application of hysteresis and capacitor couplings. This publication provides a valuable background to the design or selection of many electromagnetic clutches and couplings, which is beneficial to readers intending to find the appropriate type of device for particular purposes and performance.
