Ever-power Liquid couplings are fixed fill mechanical soft start products which utilize hydrokinetic energy to transmit torque through something of impellers. The insight impeller functions comparable to a centrifugal pump and hydraulic turbine. When the insight drive movements, it transmits kinetic energy to the essential oil which is distributed in the housing and transmits torque by engaging the outer impeller. The Dodge Liquid coupling allows the driver to start under “no load”, producing a smooth start up and reduced amount of amp draw from the motor. Since there is no physical connection within the casing, the Dodge Fluid coupling provides built-in overload protection and inherent torsional vibration absorption. Additionally, load balancing can be done with the usage of asynchronous motors, instead of custom motors, because the Fluid couplings immediately modify 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 no load, permitting the use of standard NEMA design B motors and potentially decreasing electric motor horsepower requirement
No physical connection is present, enabling 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 could be monitored by a non-contact and maintenance-free Electronic Operating Control (EOC) system. A thermal procedure control device and fusible basic safety plugs in the coupling casing provide additional safety against overheating and overload pressure.
