KWD TK-N Hydrodynamic Couplings
KWD TK-N hydrodynamic couplings are starting couplings with a constant oil filling.
KWD TK-N hydrodynamic couplings consist of a turbine actuating the oil filling which sets in motion the housing by mass forces.
The couplings are manufactured in many types and combinations and are equipped with a fusible plug which protects the coupling against thermical overload.
- Pump impeller
- Turbine wheel
- Flexible connecting coupling
Couplings Fields of Use
TK-N hydrodynamic couplings are designed as starting couplings for smooth and controlled start and subsequent torque transmission in all industries.
They are used mainly in the drives of conveyor systems, mixers and other highly stressed drives in steel mills, in the paper, chemical and rubber industries.
The couplings are available in various series and are often combined with elastic couplings and brake discs or drums.
