The KFBD serie Fluid Couplings are used on all types of industrial equipment driven by internal combustion engines up to 500 kW. By transmitting power through a fluid they improve overall performance and protect both driving and driven machine.
When you drive through KFBD coupling you profit by these Basic Benefits.
1 â€“ Frees engine during heavy starts.
During heavy starts and sudden running load increases engine lugging is prevented. The Fluid Coupling simply â€œslipâ€� while it smoothly picks up the load.
2 â€“ Provides smoothly drive
Mechanical connection is eliminated; power and torque are transmitted entirely through mass and velocity of fluid. The result is a smooth sustained flow of power minus the shocks and strains which with mechanical drives cut equipment life.
3 â€“ Prevents transmission of shock loads
Fluid Couplings protects both driving and driven equipment by smoothing out shock loads and preventing them from striking solid resistance.
4 â€“ Assures damping effects
Torsional vibrations from engine are drastically dampened by Fluid Coupling making longer life of entire transmission life.
5 â€“ Transmits full input torque
The patented Transfluid Circuit design delivers output torque always equal to input torque. The engine can turn at its max torque-rpm even when driven is at stall.
6 â€“ High radial load capability
The KFBD serie has also been designed for application requiring pulley installation particularly on heavy duty service.
