Ever-power Fluid couplings are fixed fill mechanical soft start products which utilize hydrokinetic energy to transmit torque through a system of impellers. The input impeller functions related to a centrifugal pump and hydraulic turbine. When the input drive moves, it transmits kinetic energy to the essential oil which is certainly distributed in the housing 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 reduced amount of amp draw from the engine. Since there is no physical connection inside the housing, the Dodge Fluid coupling has built-in overload safety and inherent torsional vibration absorption. Additionally, load balancing is possible with the utilization of asynchronous motors, rather than custom motors, because the Fluid couplings immediately adjust 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 zero load, permitting the usage of standard NEMA design B motors and potentially decreasing engine horsepower requirement
No physical connection exists, 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 could be monitored by a noncontact and maintenance-free Electronic Operating Control (EOC) system. A thermal procedure device and fusible safety plugs in the coupling housing provide additional safety against overheating and overload pressure.
