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 similar to a centrifugal pump and hydraulic turbine. When the insight drive movements, it transmits kinetic energy to the oil which is definitely distributed in the casing and transmits torque by engaging the outer impeller. The Dodge Fluid coupling enables the driver to start under “no load”, producing a smooth start up and reduction of amp draw from the electric motor. Since there is absolutely no physical connection inside the housing, the Dodge Liquid coupling has built-in overload safety and inherent torsional vibration absorption. Additionally, load balancing can be done with the utilization of asynchronous motors, rather than custom motors, since the Fluid couplings automatically modify to load speed.
Styles available utilizing couplings (Para-Flex and DGF Equipment) or V-Belt drives
Accommodates up to 4.75 inch shafts and 1400 horsepower applications
Smooth, controlled acceleration with customizable startup torques
Motor starts under zero load, permitting the use of standard NEMA style B motors and potentially decreasing motor horsepower requirement
No physical connection is present, enabling protection under overload conditions
Paper & Forest
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 could be monitored by a noncontact and maintenance-free Electronic Operating Control (EOC) system. A thermal operation control device and fusible security plugs in the coupling casing provide additional security against overheating and overload pressure.
