# What are the factors that affect the performance of the tractor clutch

Tractor clutches are mostly friction clutches. The friction clutch transmits power by means of friction. In order to ensure that the clutch can transmit all the torque of the engine during the working process and reduce the slippage during the engagement process, the structural design can ensure that the transmission ratio is issued under the calibration condition of the engine. Large torque 1 ~ 1. 2 times. The torque that the clutch can transmit, that is, the working performance is related to the following factors:

### (1) Friction coefficient

The ratio of the friction force to the positive pressure (compression force) is the coefficient of friction, which is expressed by how many Newtons of friction force can be generated per 10 N of positive pressure on the friction surface. The same amount of positive pressure, if the friction coefficient is large, the friction force is also large. The size of the friction coefficient is related to the material and working conditions of the two friction surfaces. Under the working conditions of the friction surface of the same material, the friction coefficient of cast iron or steel to copper wire asbestos lining is larger than that of cast iron or steel to steel.

### (2) The pressing force between the friction surfaces

It is known from physics that the greater the pressing force between the contact surfaces of two objects, the greater the frictional force that can be generated, and the two are proportional.

### (3) The logarithm of the friction surface

Under the same pressing force, when the number of friction surfaces of the same size is doubled, the friction force generated is also doubled. The single-piece driven disc has two pairs of friction surfaces, and the double-piece driven disc has four pairs of friction surfaces.
