Cranes and hoists are only as good as their couplings, which are essential to maintaining uptime and enhancing the safety and reliability of your operation. Without the right coupling, your crane or hoist may not function properly, causing your manufacturing process to grind to a halt. This kind of downtime is not welcome – especially where very high loads and expensive equipment are concerned.

Hydrodynamic Couplings in Bulk Material Handling Equipment Drives

Bulk material handling is an engineering field that is centered on designing and manufacturing of special equipment utilized to handle mainly dry materials such as ores, grains, sand, gravel and stone in loose bulk form. Mineral production, for instance, depends on a great quantity of bulk material handling equipment in order to move an impressive portion of the iron and copper ore productions in the world. In the following we want to explain how hydrodynamic couplings operate and how they can improve the MTTR of bulk material handling equipment drives.
