Ever-power Fluid couplings are fixed fill mechanical soft start products which use hydrokinetic energy to transmit torque through a system of impellers. The input impeller functions equivalent to a centrifugal pump and hydraulic turbine. When the input drive techniques, it transmits kinetic energy to the oil which is usually distributed in the casing and transmits torque by engaging the outer impeller. The Dodge Liquid coupling enables the driver to begin under “no load”, resulting in a smooth set up and reduced amount of amp pull from the motor. Since there is absolutely no physical connection within the casing, the Dodge Liquid coupling provides built-in overload security and inherent torsional vibration absorption. Additionally, load balancing is possible with the use of asynchronous motors, instead of custom motors, since the Fluid couplings immediately adapt to load speed.
Designs available utilizing couplings (Para-Flex and DGF Equipment) 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 style B motors and potentially decreasing motor horsepower requirement
No physical connection exists, enabling protection under overload conditions
Paper & Forest
Conveyors (Bulk Material Handling)
Any application requiring overload protection
Any application with a high-inertia startup
The specified operating conditions of a Ever-power coupling could be monitored by a noncontact and maintenance-free Electronic Operating Control (EOC) system. A thermal procedure control device and fusible safety plugs in the coupling housing provide additional safety against overheating and overload pressure.
