Difference Between Single Plate Clutch and Cone Clutch in Tabular Form
- Single Plate Clutch is used in light vehicles like Cars whereas Cone Clutch is used in heavy vehicles like acing boats, off-road vehicle.
- Comparison between Single Plate Clutch and Cone Clutch is below table.
|Cone Clutch||Single Plate Clutch|
|1||In a Cone Clutch, a less axial force is required to get a particular normal force.||In a Single Plate Clutch, a large axial force is required to get the same normal force compared to a cone clutch|
|2||In a Cone Clutch fewer chances of slip between the mating surfaces. So, almost 100% transfer of torque is guaranteed.||In Single Plate Clutch Due to slip between mating surfaces, less torque is transmitted compared to cone clutch.|
|3||In a Cone Clutch Disengagement of clutch becomes difficult if the cone angle is less than 20°.||In Single Plate Clutch this type of problem will not arise, since the surface of the clutch plate is flat.|
|4||The capacity of torque transmission is high.||The capacity of torque transmission is less.|
