Typical Applications

 

Logan PTO's For On-Highway or Off-Road Transmissions

Logan PTO’s are used in a variety of Mobile, Industrial, On-Highway, Marine, Construction, Agriculture, Mining, Oil Field, and Rail applications – and are designed to mount between the power take-off of the engine and  auxiliary attachment, i.e. single or multi-station pump drive.

PTO Clutch Applications

•Single and Multi-Station Pumps
•Mobile or Stationary Auxiliary Drives
•Connect / Disconnect Direct Drives
•Winches, Reels, Hoists and more

 

Logan PTO Clutches When Used With Shaft Adapter Option

Logan PTOs provide live engine power for auxiliary pump drives - through a separate PTO drive shaft. The Logan direct drive PTO clutch bolts directly to the OEM's Cardan Shaft (using a Logan shaft adapter), providing onn-off engagement of auxiliary drives or pumps in this example.

Logan 600 Series with shaft adapter. Shaft Adapter options available for 200, 600, 1000, and 1500 Series PTOs.

Logan Advantages

  • PTO is powered directly from the crankshaft, behind the engine's flywheel.
  • Does not require extended front frames, modified bumpers, brackets, radiatiors, and drive couplings associated with front PTOs
  • Eliminates exposure of the PTO and pump to front-end collision damage.

OEM Manufacturer of Construction Equipment works together with Logan Application Team

The Challenge

OEM contacts Logan to solve systemic issues which are causing hydraulic pump failure

Most OEM manufactureers of mobile equipment use hydraulic poston pumps to control machine movements and attachements. In many cases these hydraulic piston pumps are driven remotely from the engine's auxiliary PTO drive via a slip yoke shaft. Machine Operators must be able to turn these pumps on and off when the vehicle is driven from job site to job site - in order to prvent overspeeding the pump with the engine is running faster than the pump's normal hydraulic work speed. There is also the potential for all the pumps to engage at once, which would cause the input torque rating to be above the engine specifications causing hydraulic system and pump failure. In this situation, customers were going beyond the limits of the machine and pump specs - the OEM had to do something quickly - they contacted Logan.

The Solution

Logan adapts off the shelf SAE PTO Clutch to meet specific OEM customer need

In most cases the pumps are already defined by the customer, which requires Logan to fit with small envelopes, sandwiching the Logan Clutch in between the pump and engine, requiring a Logan shaft adapter to support the cardan/drive shaft connection. After considering all of the options with Logan application engineers, the OEM selected an SAE PTO 1200 Series Clutch. In less than a week, extensive lab and field tests were conducted. Results were positive. The OEM quickly created space to sandwich the Logan Clutch between the driveline and the piston pump - thereby eliminating the possibility of over speeding the pumps. This solution enabled the OEM to keep its customer base happy by eliminating unnecessary machine downtime.

How They Work:  

Direct Drive PTO’s are self-contained, fluid or air activated clutches, positioned between a live PTO pad and hydraulic pump.

PTO Clutch Advantages:

  • Reduces fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by engaging drives and pumps only when required
  • Better Engine Starts: Reduces horsepower draw and cranking power required during machine start-up by disconnecting the hydraulic system from the engine
  • Reduced ambient noise through intermittent use of pumps and equipment
  • Cooler running hydraulic systems: Heat is generated whenever oil dumps from high to low pressure without producing work. Disconnecting the PTO Clutch reduces the destructive effects of heat – lowering maintenance costs and hydraulic
  • oil service requirements
  • Extends the life of drive systems and components
  • Standard PTO clutches available in B, B-B, C, C-C, and other popular sizes
