• Hydrodynamic fluid coupling
  • Nominal output from 1.2 kW up to 2,500 kW with 15 sizes
  • Temperature range: from –40 °C to +50 °C

Soft and safe: Especially within tough applications, drive components and processing machines are subject to extreme loads.

FLUDEX® couplings limit start and maximum torque within the drive train and serve as starting aids for the motor and as overload protection in the case of an incident.

Your benefits at a glance

  • Soft and shock-free starting of machines and conveyor systems
  • Torque transmission without wear allows internal combustion engines to start up with a connected load
  • Torque limitation during start-up and in the case of overload protects coupled system components
  • Acceleration of large masses without using oversized motors
  • Protection of the drive against load peaks due to frequent switching procedures and reverse operation
  • Excellent decoupling of vibrations and shock damping
  • Largely torsional vibration decoupling in vibration-endangered drives
  • Small operating slip of the coupling at nominal load (approx. 2%)
  • Suitable for use in potentially explosive environments; certified according to 2014/34/EU (ATEX)
