Fluid coupling

Ever-power Fluid couplings are fixed fill mechanical soft start gadgets which utilize hydrokinetic energy to transmit torque through a system of impellers. The input impeller functions related to a centrifugal pump and hydraulic turbine. When the input drive moves, it transmits kinetic energy to the essential oil which is distributed in the casing and transmits torque by engaging the outer impeller. The Dodge Liquid coupling allows the driver to start under “no load”, producing a smooth start up and reduction of amp attract from the electric motor. Since there is no physical connection within the housing, the Dodge Liquid coupling offers built-in overload security and inherent torsional vibration absorption. Additionally, load balancing can be done with the utilization of asynchronous motors, instead of custom motors, since the Fluid couplings automatically adjust to load speed.

common applications
Conveyors (Bulk Materials Handling)
Any application requiring overload protection
Any application with a high-inertia startup

The specified working conditions of a Ever-power coupling can be monitored by a noncontact and maintenance-free Electronic Operating Control (EOC) system. A thermal operation device and fusible safety plugs in the coupling casing provide additional protection against overheating and overload pressure.
