RigPro carries clutches and brakes from WPT Power including water cooled brakes, caliper brakes, power grip clutches, and power set clutches and brakes.

Water Cooled Brakes: Water cooled brakes are used for situations involving large thermal loads must be dissipated. These situations include logging, towing winches, and petroleum drilling to name a few.Mechanical PTO: The Mechanical PTO consists of a lever actuated clutch with a shaft and bearings fixed in cast housing.  This product is designed for inline and side load situations on all SAE standard dimensioned combustion engines.

  • Sealed-for-life bearings
  • Ball bearings throw out collars are available on some sizes
  • Heavy-duty, laminated gear tooth friction disc is available
  • Drive rings are iron or steel
  • Roller pilot bearings are available

type1-ptoType 1 PTO: This PTO is designed to maximize spherical roller bearing potential with the use of their sheaves between the bearings.  The Type 1 PTO is intended for very high involvement applications, thus they possess a drive belt tension capacity that is 2-4 times stronger than the Type 2 PTO.


  • Potential  for remote engagement
  • Maintenance-free self-adjusting clutch
  • Air or Hydraulic actuation
  • Heavy Duty Laminated gear tooth friction discs
  • Easy drive belt removal

type-2-ptoType 2 PTO: The Type 2 PTO is an innovative and adaptable PTO. With the use of its high class roller bearings and dry clutch, the Type 2 PTO has proven its ability to handle various side load applications.

  • Potential for remote engagement
  • Maintenance-free self-adjusting clutch
  • Air or Hydraulic actuation
  • Heavy Duty Laminated gear tooth friction discs
  • Grease or oil lubrication for bearings

caliper-brakeCaliper Brake: The Caliper Brake is built to meet a large array of applications. Some of the common fields for application are Oil & Gas, Forestry, Marine, and Off-Shore industries. This product is designed for easy maintenance and high reliability.

power-gripPower Grip: The Power Grip clutch is a product intended to be versatile for both in-line and shaft-to-shaft power transmission applications. The dry-clutch designed by WPT is widely recognized as an industry standard that ranges from 8” to 60”. Common uses are Marine, Oil & Gas, Mining, but also many other industrial functions. Maintenance Benefit Options:

  • Patented Extended Hub Teeth
  • Wave Springs to replace standard coil spring sets
  • Standard or quick change driving adapters
  • Split Air tubes  and Friction Discs
  • Demountable back plate

power-grip-po>Power Grip PO: The WPT Power Grip PO Clutch is aimed to accommodate in-line power transmission applications with sizes from 14” to 36”. Common practices for this product include Marine, Mining, Oil & Gas industries.

  • Nodular Iron drive rings as standard
  • Premier friction material
  • Extended life diaphragm
  • Design self-compensates for wear

power-set-brakePower Set Brake: Power Set Clutches and Brakes feature basic pneumatic-piston pin-drive designs that offer both pneumatically-applied and spring-applied systems that pneumatically release. These Clutches and Brakes provide a means to meet the heavy loads and intense work of the Mining industry.
