FLUDEX Fluid Coupling

FLUDEX couplings are hydrodynamic fluid couplings operating according to the Föttinger principle. The coupling parts on the input and output side are not mechanically connected and thus not subject to wear. Torque is transmitted by the fluid movement in the coupling accelerated by the radial blades.

Your benefits

  • Soft and shockless starting of machines and conveyors

  • Acceleration of very large masses without the necessity to use overdimensioned motors

  • Protection of drive against peak loads in case of frequent starting and reversing operations

  • Excellent vibration separation and shock damping; greatest possible extent of torsional vibration uncoupling in drives subject to vibration

  • Mining and Cement: conveyor belts, apron conveyors, bucket elevators, tube mills, rotary kilns, bunker dischargers, vertical mills, bucket excavators, crushers, roller presses, separators
  • Oil and Gas: pumps, fans, compressors, air condensers
  • Power Generation: air condensers, generators, cooling towers
  • Chemicals and Pharmaceuticals: driers, lauter tuns, pumps and compressors, mixers, cooling towers, agitators, reactors
  • Pulp and Paper: woodgrinders, waste paper, wet section, dry section, wastewater purification plants
  • Water and Wastewater: aerators, water screw pumps
  • Food and Beverage: lauter tuns, reactors, agitators, mixers
