Ever-power Liquid couplings are fixed fill mechanical soft start gadgets which make use of hydrokinetic energy to transmit torque through a system of impellers. The insight impeller functions equivalent to a centrifugal pump and hydraulic turbine. When the insight drive movements, it transmits kinetic energy to the essential oil which can be distributed in the casing and transmits torque by engaging the outer impeller. The Dodge Fluid coupling allows the driver to begin under “no load”, resulting in a smooth start up and reduced amount of amp draw from the engine. Since there is no physical connection within the casing, the Dodge Liquid coupling offers built-in overload safety and inherent torsional vibration absorption. Additionally, load balancing can be done with the use of asynchronous motors, instead of custom motors, because the Fluid couplings automatically adjust to load speed.
Designs 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 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 can be monitored by a non-contact and maintenance-free Electronic Operating Control (EOC) system. A thermal procedure device and fusible security plugs in the coupling housing provide additional protection against overheating and overload pressure.
