Constant Fill/Fixed Speed Coupling : Type SC

Fluidomat Limited an ISO 9001:2008 certified Company

FLUIDOMAT - SC is a variable speed fluid coupling providing stepless speed variation in a wide range when connected to fixed speed electric motor. The speed variation is obtained by varying the oil filling in coupling through a sliding scoop tube when in operation. Fluidomat SC offers advantages like no load starting of motor, controlled starting torque for machine acceleration, continuous declutching, stepless speed variation and synchronizing of motors in multidrive units, load limiting in a very wide range for safety of motors and machine. It offers flexibility in controls as it can respond to various electric, pneumatic or hydraulic signals and it is compatible with all types of controllers like pneumatic, hydraulic, electronic, electrical or manual. Beside it offers all the advantages of constant speed fluid coupling like load limiting, absorption of shock loads, torsional loads and vibrations, smooth acceleration etc. Its built-in safety arrangements make it fool-proof during operation.

FLUIDOMAT - SC consists of a fluid coupling housed in a self-supported stationary housing having a built-in oil Sump. Oil is continuously introduced in the working circuit (11) of fluid coupling through an oil pump. The oil circulates through the working circuit and finally passes to the secondary casing (6) and is collected by a sliding scoop tube (7). The position of scoop tube governs the oil level in the working circuit, thus controlling the speed. The position of sliding scoop tube can be governed through suitable actuator and can also be operated manually. On the input and output ends, suitable flexible couplings are provided for the shafts connections. Labyrinth Seals (10) provided on input and output shaft is an effective barrier and ensures no leakage from shaft ends.
