The torque transmitted to the machine is limited by allowing the clutch plates to slip relative to each other. Torque peaks or short duration overloads are limited when the clutch is used and adjusted properly. It can be used as an overload clutch, or to help start implements with high inertial loads. The EP has a metal band around its circumference. Avoid excessive tightening of the bolts - implement, tractor, or driveline damage may occur. The EP clutch has bolts with cap nuts. The spring compression is correct when the nuts are fully screwed on.
