Proven top performance: Voith’s 1.000th TPKL fluid coupling goes to a Chinese 6,4 MW belt conveyor drive
Voith started the production of the TPKL coupling series in 1997. This fluid coupling type was especially developed for demanding belt conveyor applications in mining. The coupling type provides excellent torque limitation for a smooth start-up of the belt conveyor. It allows active load sharing with multi-motor drives. Thanks to its standstill cooling function it can handle the most difficult start-ups multiple times in succession.
