Fluid Couplings are mechanical two-piece mechanisms consisting of an impeller and a runner, both within a housing filled with oil. The impeller is connected to the driving shaft; the runner is connected to the driven shaft. In conveyor drives, the fluid coupling usually is placed between the motor and speed reducer. A list of fluid couplings is provided below.
|Coupling name||Coupling type||Design features|
|T||Constant fill||Basic version|
|TV||Constant fill||Coupling with delay chamber|
|TVV||Constant fill||Coupling with enlarged delay chamber|
|TVS||Constant fill||Coupling with delay chamber and annular chamber shell|
|TVVS||Constant fill||Coupling with enlarged delay chamber and annular chamber shell|
|TV...F||Constant fill||Coupling with centrifugal force valves|
|TV...Y||Constant fill||Refilling holes between working space and delay chamber|
|TP||Fill-controlled||Bearing supported, separate oil system with valves and active cooling|
|TPK||Fill-controlled||Bearing supported, separate oil system with valves and active cooling|
|TPW||Fill-controlled||Special solution without housing|
|TPKL||Fill-controlled||Integral bearings, with oil tank, valves and active cooling|
|TurboBelt TPXL Family||Fill-controlled||Compact & lightweight drive solution, with XL profile for high power transmission, directly mounted on to the motor flange|
