The clutch master cylinder converts the force generated by the clutch pedal into hydraulic pressure, which is output to the clutch slave cylinder. The clutch slave cylinder converts the hydraulic pressure into thrust, which pushes the clutch release bearing, thereby disengaging the clutch.
The clutch master cylinder is the part that is connected to the clutch pedal and clutch booster through oil pipes. What it does is separate the pedals via the booster.
When the driver depresses the clutch, the push rod will push the piston of the master cylinder to increase the oil pressure and enter the slave cylinder through the hose, forcing the slave cylinder pull rod to push the release fork and push the release bearing forward. When the driver releases the clutch pedal, the hydraulic pressure produced will be released and the clutch will then be engaged.
The clutch is a commonly used component in mechanical transmission, it can disengage or engage the transmission system of the car at any time. However, the car has requirements for the work of the clutch. When the car shifts gears during driving, it is required that the clutch engages smoothly, separates quickly and completely, and the clutch must have good wear resistance and heat dissipation.
The principle of the clutch master cylinder and wheel cylinder is the same as that of the automobile brake cylinder. All use the principle of hydraulic pressure to disengage the clutch.
