The SKF serie Fluid Couplings are used on all types of industrial equipment driven by internal combustion engines up to 180 kW requiring a tight flywheel mounting. By transmitting power through a fluid, they improve overall performance and protect both driving and driven machine.
When you drive through Transfluid Coupling you profit by these Basic Benefits.
- Frees engine during heavy starts
During heavy starts and sudden running load increases, engine lugging is prevented. The Fluid Coupling simply “slip” while it smoothly picks up the load.
- Provides smoothly drive
Mechanical connection is eliminated; power and torque are transmitted entirely through mass and velocity of fluid. The result is a smooth, sustained flow of power minus the shocks and strains which, with mechanical drives, cut equipment life.
- Prevents transmission of shock loads
Fluid Couplings protects both driving and driven equipment by smoothing out shock loads and preventing them from striking solid resistance.
- Assures damping effects
Torsional vibrations from engine are drastically dampened by Fluid Coupling making longer life of entire transmission life.
- Transmits full input torque
The patented Transfluid Circuit design delivers output torque always equal to input torque. The engine can turn at its max torque-rpm, even when driven is at stall.
- Radial load capability.
The SKF serie includes the SKFE line which allows the installation of a pulley on output shaft.
