The TRANSFLUID coupling is a hydrokinetic transmission.
The impellers perform like a centrifugal pump and a hydraulic turbine. With an input drive to the pump (e.g. electric motor or Diesel engine) kinetic energy is imparted to the oil in the coupling. The oil moves by centrifugal force across the blades of the turbine towards the outside of the coupling.
This absorbs the kynetic energy and develops a torque which is always equal to input torque thus causing rotation of the output shaft. The wear is practically zero since there are no mechanical connections. The efficiency is influenced only by the speed difference (slip) between pump and turbine.
