Fluid coupling type TV..Y
The fluid coupling type TV..Y is a constant-filled couplings that, e.g., is used in centrifugal load drives such as fans and mills. Thanks to the dynamic re-filling, the operating fluid is guided from the working circuit into the delay chamber during start up, depending on the slippage. This ensures an almost time-independent torque limitation and is thus suitable for longer start up times.
The coupling also protects the drive against overload and dampens torsional virbations. This protects your system and increases its productivity.
This fluid coupling is also available with two coaxially arranged work circuits (type DTV..Y). The parallel acting circuits double the power transmission.
We offer fluid couplings with water as the operating medium (type TWV..Y) especially for potentially explosive atmospheres or with outer casing made of spheroidal cast iron (type TUV..Y) for use in operations with relevant material requirements.
Temperature monitoring systems (MTS, BTS, BTM) increase the availability of the drive and boost the productivity of the system.

Typical fields of use
The installation dimensions and performance
characteristics correspond with the couplings
Hydrodynamic couplings transmit mechanical power from the motor to the driven machine via a flow of fluid. This occurs by means of two bladed wheels positioned face to face. The primary wheel (red) is connected with the motor and acts like a rotary pump, the secondary wheel (blue) is connected to the driven machine and acts like a turbine. Power transmission is proportional to the fill level in the working circuit. As a result of the mechanical separation of the drive and driven sides, the hydrodynamic couplings transfer the power wear-free and dampen the torsional vibration and torque shocks in the drive chain at the same time.
Constant-filled couplings are self-contained drive components. The different types of constant-filled couplings are mainly differentiated by the volumetric chambers , where their automatically controlled fill and emptying have a decisive influence upon start-up behavior. The demand of the drive application determines the coupling type and capacity. Constant-filled couplings are mainly used for soft start, torque limitation and dampening the torsional vibration behavior of the drive.
