Ever-power Fluid couplings are fixed fill up mechanical soft start products which make use of hydrokinetic energy to transmit torque through a system of impellers. The input impeller functions similar to a centrifugal pump and hydraulic turbine. When the input drive moves, it transmits kinetic energy to the oil which is certainly distributed in the casing and transmits torque by engaging the outer impeller. The Dodge Fluid coupling allows the driver to begin under “no load”, producing a smooth start up and reduction of amp pull from the motor. Since there is no physical connection inside the housing, the Dodge Liquid coupling provides built-in overload protection 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, controlled acceleration with customizable startup torques
Motor starts under zero load, permitting the utilization of standard NEMA style B motors and potentially decreasing electric motor horsepower requirement
No physical connection exists, 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 operating conditions of a Ever-power coupling can 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 casing provide additional protection against overheating and overload pressure.
