Fluid coupling types and applications

Post by cisco on Mon Jan 24, 2011 8:31 am

A fluid coupling is a hydrodynamic device used to transmit rotating mechanical power. It offers the advantages of soft starting of the load, torque limitation, and mechanical shock absorption which are all with minimal energy loss. And they can be further divided into various types. There are constant-fill couplings, delayed-fill couplings, variable-fill couplings, and centrifugal lockup couplings, etc.

Fluid couplings also have a wide range of applications. It has been used in automobile transmissions as an alternative to a mechanical clutch. It also has a wide range of application in industries and rail transportation. Besides, they are also used in automotive applications.
