These transmission fluid couplings offer a multitude of benefits, including soft start, correct starting torque, motor protection and shock absorption, as well as perfectly balanced motor loading and elimination of unwanted vibration.
The high performance level of fluid couplings is largely due to the design of the working circuit, which includes the shape of the circuit, the number of vanes in the circuit, and the placement of these vanes. The working circuit developed by Elecon is the result of years of extensive R&D experience.
“In the case of an extended jamming period, a fusible plug blow off will empty the fluid coupling thereby disconnecting the output from the input, and protecting both driving and driven equipment,” BI Product Manager Jackie Jacobs comments.
Elecon fluid couplings are available in four different types, namely CD: A coupling without a delayed filling chamber, CDR: A coupling with a delayed filling chamber, CDRP: A coupling with an extended delayed filling chamber, and CDRS: A coupling with an extended delayed filling chamber and controlled nozzles.
BI, part of the Hudaco Group, has consolidated its position as a leading distributor of bearings and power transmission products in Southern Africa by launching a new brand identity at the end of last year. “Our aim is to become a proactive company providing excellent service to our customers to ensure we are the preferred supplier,” CEO Burtie Roberts concludes.
