West River Conveyors offers a range of new, used, and rebuilt Falk and Voith fluid couplings with a variety of connection types, motor bores and reducer bore sizes.
Check out our current inventory of fluid couplings. We constantly update our in-stock inventory models so check back periodically to see what we have available.
Fluid Couplings Overview
A fluid coupling, or hydraulic coupling, is a hydrodynamic device that transmits rotating mechanical energy between two axes, or drive shafts. They 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.
They are mostly used in heavy industry and marine applications today, although fluid couplings were also used in automotive transmissions until the late 1940s.
The primary advantage of a fluid coupling is that it allows the operator to change the speed of the power transmission without shock loading it.
We carry several models of Voith & Falk Fluid Couplings:
Belt Drives, Takeups, Tail Sections, Chutes, Remote Discharges, Winches
