A fluid coupling is a simple mechanical device that connects a prime mover, typically a squirrel cage motor, to a driven machine. These can be conveyors, crushers, fans, pumps and blowers. They are used in many industries including Power Generation, Steel Production, Mining and Quarrying, Petrochemical and food production. They have given over 70 years of reliable efficient operation, and still provide the engineer with a reliable method of starting a operating heavy industrial equipment.
