Rotomec Hydromechanical Fluid Coupling
Westcar Rotomec coupling is a transmission mechanism working with oil fluids designed to allow gradual start-ups in absence of impact. The specialist design removes the need for large power transmissions, especially in the starting phase and without residual slippage.
The hydro-mechanical coupling maintains the same features of standard fluid couplings with added benefits of a centrifugal clutch to eliminate the slip between the driving motor and driven machine. It is made up of two impellers with opposite frontal hydrofoils, which form the pump-turbine circuit, that is coupled with the centrifugal clutch which allows a residual slippage free condition.
The centrifugal coupling is situated inside the pump-turbine circuit. Equipped with a suitable oil used as a means of transmission for the first stage of the starting. The second stage is started by the mechanical engagement of the centrifugal blocks with wear and tear free rollers in the oil bath.
