Ever-power Liquid couplings are fixed fill mechanical soft start devices which make use of hydrokinetic energy to transmit torque through something of impellers. The input impeller functions very similar to a centrifugal pump and hydraulic turbine. When the insight drive movements, it transmits kinetic energy to the oil which is normally distributed in the casing and transmits torque by engaging the outer impeller. The Dodge Liquid coupling enables the driver to start under “no load”, resulting in a smooth set up and reduction of amp attract from the motor. Since there is absolutely no physical connection in the housing, the Dodge Liquid coupling provides built-in overload security and inherent torsional vibration absorption. Additionally, load balancing is possible with the use of asynchronous motors, instead of custom motors, since the Fluid couplings automatically change to load speed.
Designs available utilizing couplings (Para-Flex and DGF Equipment) or V-Belt drives
Accommodates up to 4.75 inch shafts and 1400 horsepower applications
Smooth, managed acceleration with customizable startup torques
Motor starts under zero load, permitting the use of standard NEMA design B motors and potentially decreasing engine 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 operating conditions of a Ever-power coupling can be monitored by a non-contact and maintenance-free Electronic Operating Control (EOC) system. A thermal procedure control device and fusible protection plugs in the coupling casing provide additional security against overheating and overload pressure.
