Ever-power Liquid 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 moves, it transmits kinetic energy to the oil which can be distributed in the housing and transmits torque by engaging the outer impeller. The Dodge Liquid coupling enables the driver to start under “no load”, resulting in a smooth start up and reduced amount of amp draw from the electric motor. Since there is absolutely no physical connection within the housing, the Dodge Fluid coupling provides built-in overload security and inherent torsional vibration absorption. Additionally, load balancing can be done with the usage of asynchronous motors, instead of custom motors, since the Fluid couplings automatically change 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 use of standard NEMA design B motors and potentially 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 operating conditions of a Ever-power coupling could be monitored by a noncontact and maintenance-free Electronic Operating Control (EOC) system. A thermal operation device and fusible security plugs in the coupling casing provide additional protection against overheating and overload pressure.
