FLUDEX® Hydrodynamic Fluid Couplings

Hydrodynamic fluid couplings operate on the Fottinger principle. FLUDEX® couplings limit starting and maximum torque in the drive train and, through the property of rotational slip, serve as an aid to starting the motor, as overload protection in the event of fault and for isolating torsional vibration. To compensate for shaft misalignment, the FLUDEX coupling is combined with a displacement coupling e.g. of the N-EUPEX type.

The coupling parts on the input and output sides are not mechanically connected to each other. Output is transmitted via the oil filling which rotates in the coupling and is conducted over radially arranged blades. FLUDEX couplings limit starting and maximum torque in the drive train and, through the property of rotational slip, serve as an aid to starting the motor, as overload protection in the event of fault and for isolating torsional vibration.

When large masses are started up, the drive train is accelerated only at the torque determined by the coupling characteristic. The starting operation is spread over time, the driven machine started softly and smoothly. In the case of special operating conditions, such as overload or blocking of the driven machine, the FLUDEX coupling limits the maximum torque load and prevents the inert effect of the rotating motor mass on the drive train. The coupling then acts as a load-holding safety clutch until the drive is shut off by the motor control or coupling monitoring system. The FLUDEX coupling further acts as a means of decoupling during torsional vibration excitation.

NEW N-EUPEX® DK coupling

The new double-cardanic coupling design compensates for not only a greater range of shaft angle offsets, but also a considerably greater radial offset so that shaft ends can be connected in a manner that offers the drive greater protection. With this two-joint version, compensation for radial offset that occurs between the shaft ends is enabled by a corresponding angle of inclination in the elastomer joints. This increases the range of possible radial offset by more than a multiple of four. Shaft ends that are not 100% in alignment present a significant problem especially in pump applications. In such cases the N-EUPEX DK provides a solution for many problems. Depending on the coupling length and size, it enables compensation for a radial offset of up to 3 mm.
Type DK couplings in the size range from 68 to 225 are appropriate for long and trouble-free operation, particularly for pump applications, because they enable compensation for large shaft offsets as a consequence of thermal expansion, for example. Due to very low restoring forces, the coupling provides a smooth solution in difficult and demanding cases.Suitable for use in potentially explosive areas.
ATEX certification on request.

Railway Couplings

Couplings for rail vehicles have to fulfill numerous requirements during everyday use, sometimes in extreme conditions. With this in mind, Flender focuses on reliability and safety during both the design and the production of rail couplings and regularly subjects them to tests.

FLENDER Railway Couplings offer:
» High quality.
» 100% component traceability.
» Great depth within an extensive product range.
» Component compatibility with Flender gear units for rail vehicles.
» Low maintenance costs and a high level of serviceability.

The Flender product range comprises couplings for partially and fully suspended drives which can be mounted between motor and gear unit or gear unit and wheel-set shaft. Axle loads of up to 32 t, motor speeds of over 6,000 rpm and driving speeds of more than 400 km/h create high forces,which our couplings are designed to withstand.We have tested all model series under extreme conditions so as to guarantee maximum reliability. We offer a broad range of products in all necessary sizes and designs as standard.
