Fluid coupling (Hydrodynamic coupling)
A FLUID COUPLING is used as starting couplings in drives with high mass moments of inertia of the driven machine. It is operated based on the FOTTINGER principle. The motion of the vortex formed inside the coupling and the driving motion outside the coupling is the two main operating factor of the coupling.
• It is used in automotive industries for the transmission of power from the engine to the wheel as an alternative of a clutch
• It is used in marine propulsion systems
• It is used in various industries for the power transmission
