Combidrive Ltd has supplied centrifugal clutches to the major truck/trailer fridge manufacturers in the U.K. for over 28 years.
"No matter how good a product may appear to be today, tomorrow could bring an advantage in design or manufacture. Improvement on an already good design depends on experience and feedback from customers" says managing director Edwin Jones, pictured in the Combidrive "Mouse" car. "For three years, we entered the Shell Mileage Marathon with the Mouse, developed by us and equipped with one of our clutches and automatic transmissions. Each year we achieved a better result culminating in a WORLD RECORD of 568mpg for a diesel powered single seat road legal car".
The "Mouse" is definately not a fridge unit, especially on a hot day! but the achievement does reflect our dedication to optimum performance. In the case of fridge clutches, our prime interest is to extend further the life of a well proven design, so field testing is proceeding to that end. We welcome user comments at any time".
