In today's world where the natural resources are depleting with considerable speed, sensible use and conservation of these is the need of the hour-'conservation of natural resources' has become the Global concern. Modern technology also has not lagged behind in this war; constant endeavors are being made to improve the technology so as to help save precious energy and in the process money also. One outcome of our efforts is development of Scoop Controlled - Variable Speed Fluid Coupling
In industries the deciding factor for choosing the prime mover (motor) for a machine is the power required to start the machine from standstill condition, called the starting torque, which is considerably higher – 150% to 200% of the power required to keep the machine running. In simple terms - if 3 kW power is needed to keep a machine running, for starting the same machine from standstill condition we will require a power of 5-6 kW power which ultimately, decides the rating of the motor that will run the machine, which obviously results in the wastage of precious energy
What one could wish for is the stating of motor on no-load condition, a control over the starting torque as the machine accelerates, continues declutching if required, stepless speed variation wherever needed, synchronous running of a number of motors in a multidrive system with load limiting for the safety of motor as well as of the machine… etc. ELECON's scoop controlled - variable speed fluid coupling is an answer to fulfill this wish list
CONSTRUCTION & FUNCTION
Variable speed fluid coupling comprises of a stationary housing (2 & 3), which also serves as the sump and this fully supports and covers the rotating mass.
