Ever-power Fluid couplings are fixed fill mechanical soft start devices which utilize hydrokinetic energy to transmit torque through a system of impellers. The insight impeller functions very similar to a centrifugal pump and hydraulic turbine. When the insight drive techniques, it transmits kinetic energy to the oil which is certainly distributed in the housing and transmits torque by engaging the outer impeller. The Dodge Fluid coupling allows the driver to start under “no load”, producing a smooth start up and reduced amount of amp attract from the motor. Since there is no physical connection within the housing, the Dodge Fluid coupling offers built-in overload safety and inherent torsional vibration absorption. Additionally, load balancing is possible with the use of asynchronous motors, instead of custom motors, because the Fluid couplings automatically modify to load speed.
Styles available utilizing couplings (Para-Flex and DGF Gear) or V-Belt drives
Accommodates up to 4.75 inch shafts and 1400 horsepower applications
Smooth, managed acceleration with customizable startup torques
Motor starts under no load, permitting the use of standard NEMA design B motors and potentially fluid coupling china decreasing engine horsepower requirement
No physical connection is present, allowing for protection under overload conditions
Paper & Forest
Conveyors (Bulk Material 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 control device and fusible protection plugs in the coupling housing provide additional protection against overheating and overload pressure.
