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 – Frees engine during heavy starts. During heavy starts and sudden running load increases, engine lugging is prevented. The Fluid Coupling simply “slip” while it smoothly picks up the load. 2 – 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 – 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 – Assures damping effects Torsional vibrations from engine are drastically dampened by Fluid Coupling making longer life of entire transmission life. 5 – 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 – High radial load capability The KFBD serie has been also desigend for application requiring pulley installation particularly on heavy duty service.
