Kendrion electromagnetic clutches for air compressors of the brand allow for demand-meeting operation of the compressed-air system in vehicles. Due to energy consumption and wear, continuous operation of air compressors is the reason for high costs. This is where Kendrion's technology comes in: The compressor is only operated, when actually needed. This generally amounts to between 10% and 20% of the operating time. LINNIG
Examples for applications of these electromagnetic clutches:
- Tractors: For this application, air is required only when driving with a pneumatically braked trailer as well as when operating the tire-inflation system. For the remaining time, the air compressors can be switched off.
- Rail vehicles: In diesel-electrical shunting locomotives, compressed air is used for the braking system. In this application, too, the compressed air is required only in certain situations. For example, when freight cars or wagons stand idle for long periods and pressure-loss occurs.
