Cat 3512 Front of Engine PTO
Logan Clutch has partnered with multiple OEM's for front of engine power take off PTO's.
One popular application is with the Caterpillar 3512B and 3512C engine (1100-2551bhp/820-1902kW) This main propulsion engine is available from Caterpillar with a front, left, top SAE J744 "C" pad to mount a hydraulic pump.
OEM's have partnered with Logan to solve a range of common problems including:
1) Disengages pump when not in use saving pump wear and tear. Less maintenance.
2) Removes pump load from engine when pump is not in use. Saves fuel.
3) Disconnects the pump if there is a hydraulic system leak and allows the engine to continue to run. Greener.
4) Simplifies cold starts of main engine. Just make sure the clutch is not engaged. Simpler systems.
5) Reduces noise from hydraulic systems running needlessly. Better for operators.
Iowa State Universitys 1/4 Scale Tractor Pulling Team It is finally time for the wrap of the 2015 Quarter Scale season. With a challenging year filled with new obstacles and terrain, the payout of a top ten finish for both A and X teams reveal as the reward. Overall there was a total of twenty eight teams that competed at the Expo Gardens in Peoria, IL. From the East coast to West, Texas to Canada, and across the pond to Israel, all teams contributed to the success of the ASABE 2015 International Quarter Scale Student Design Competition. As the year has passed the competition prevailed for the 18th consecutive year. Since the beginning in 1998 the rules, design restraints, and performance events havechanged every few years to add challenge and innovation. This year the introduction of the durability course provided the intimidation. Composed of two sections, a bump track followed by a 12 deep sand pit, each team had to pull a cart weighing 1,500lbs across both. Accumulating one lap as
THE CHALLENGE To Help an OEM develop their own product line of mobile equipment for oil and gas retrieval. This complex equipment is self- contained but has many functions that must be performed at the same time. This equipment will be Company owned, engineered, and maintained. This direct line of communication gives us options we would not always be granted. The challenge presented was to control the engine mounted pumps connected directly to the rear direct drive PTO pads. At present these pumps cannot be controlled except by stopping the engine. This is not an acceptable solution for the multiple functions required by the engine. These pumps are only required for short periods of time to deliver a slurry mixture. With the clutches both pumps can be used only as required by hydraulic actuation. By adding the clutches to each pump both pumps can be used at the same time or individually as required. THE SOLUTION The pads on the engine were an SAE standard. Logan has developed a complete
