constant-fill and fill-controlled fluid couplings, gear couplings, grid couplings, elastomer couplings and more from leading brands like Voith, Falk, Rexnord and Kraftpower. West River has in stock and ready to sell in a pinch, flexible disc couplings, T10, T20, G20 couplings, wrapflex couplings, and more. If not in-stock, West River can get a part for you in a timely manner. Let us help you find a coupling to suit your operational needs. New, used and rebuilt options available for every budget.
Fluid couplings are used to gently accelerate belt drives. Fluid couplings limit torque, provide load sharing upon start-up and dampen torsional vibrations increasing your conveyor system’s productivity and longevity. Maximum energy savings is also achieved when fluid couplings are used, due to current peak reduction.
In many cases customers opt to use a gear or elastomer coupling if they are using a VFD starter.

The belts that power your mining conveyor are the weakest link in your conveyor system. Despite recent advances in technology, and an estimated lifespan of anywhere from three to ten read more »
While there are other ways of bringing material to the surface, nothing beats an underground conveyor. A custom-engineered conveyor system is fast, safe, and reliable. It doesn’t emit any fumes, read more »
The cost of an overland conveyor system is related to the distance it needs to cover, but only in part: there are other factors involved, too. Here we’ll explain what’s read more »
