Hydrodynamic fluid coupling
Nominal output from 1.2 kW up to 2,500 kW with 15 sizes
Temperature range: from –40 °C to +50 °C
Soft and safe
Especially within tough applications, drive components and processing machines are subject to extreme loads. FLUDEX® couplings limit start and maximum torque within the drive train and serve as starting aids for the motor and as overload protection in the case of an incident. They also provide damping and separation of rotary oscillation, thereby reducing restoring forces to a minimum.
Fluid couplings operate according to the Föttinger principle. The coupling parts on the input and output side are not mechanically connected and are therefore wear-free. The torque is transmitted by the fluid movement in the coupling, accelerated by the radial blades. Our film illustrates the Föttinger principle as well as the operating principle of the FLUDEX coupling.
