Typical case of diaphragm coupling applied to variable frequency speed control equipment
JMB type coupling is applied to HangZhou Oilfield Thermal Power Plant
According to the requirements of HangZhou Electric Power Corporation, HangZhou Oilfield Thermal Power Plant should dynamically adjust the power generation according to the load of the power grid and market demand, and carry out the transformation of the frequency converter and the suction fan. The motor was originally a 1600KW, 730RPM non-frequency variable speed motor matched by HangZhou Motor Factory. The speed control mode after changing the frequency is manual control. Press the button speed to increase 10RPM or drop 10RPM. The coupling is still the original elastic decoupling coupling, and the elastic de-coupling coupling after frequency conversion is frequently damaged, which directly affects the normal power generation.
It is found through analysis that in the process of frequency conversion speed regulation, the pin of the coupling can not bear the inertia of the speed regulation process (the diameter of the fan impeller is 3.3 meters) and is cut off, which has great damage to the motor and the fan.
Later, they switched to the JMB460 double-diaphragm wheel-type coupling of our factory (patent number: ZL.99246247.9). After 1 hour of destructive experiment and more than 1 year of operation test, the equipment is running very well, and there is no Replace the diaphragm. 12 units have been rebuilt and the operation is in good condition.

Advancements and Innovations in Fluid Coupling Technology
Fluid coupling technology has undergone significant advancements and innovations over the years, leading to improved performance, efficiency, and versatility. Some notable advancements include:
- Variable Fill Fluid Couplings: These modern fluid couplings feature a variable fill design that allows for better control of the power transmission. By adjusting the fill level of the coupling, it becomes possible to optimize torque transmission and efficiency across a wider range of operating conditions.
- Electronic Control: The integration of electronic control systems has brought a new level of intelligence to fluid couplings. Electronic control allows for precise monitoring and adjustment of the coupling’s operation, enabling smoother start-ups, better load sharing, and protection against excessive loads.
- Smart Coupling Technologies: Some fluid coupling manufacturers offer smart coupling technologies that incorporate sensors and data analytics. These smart couplings can monitor performance parameters in real-time, detect anomalies, and provide valuable insights into the overall system health.
- High-Temperature Applications: Advancements in material science have led to the development of fluid couplings capable of operating at higher temperatures. This makes them suitable for use in demanding applications, such as heavy industries and high-temperature environments.
- Efficiency Improvements: Manufacturers have focused on enhancing the overall efficiency of fluid couplings. By reducing internal losses and improving fluid circulation, modern fluid couplings offer higher efficiency, which translates into energy savings and reduced operating costs.
- Integration with Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs): Fluid couplings can now be integrated with VFDs, combining the benefits of both technologies. The VFD allows for variable speed control, while the fluid coupling provides soft start and overload protection, creating a versatile and efficient power transmission system.
These advancements in fluid coupling technology have made them even more reliable, adaptable, and suitable for various industrial applications. As technology continues to evolve, fluid couplings are likely to see further improvements, making them an integral part of modern power transmission systems.
Temperature Limitations of Fluid Couplings
Fluid couplings, like any mechanical component, have temperature limitations that must be considered to ensure their proper and safe operation. The temperature limitations of fluid couplings are influenced by the type of fluid used inside the coupling, the ambient operating conditions, and the specific design and construction of the coupling.
The primary concern regarding temperature is the heat generated during the operation of the fluid coupling. The heat is a result of friction and fluid shear within the coupling as it transmits power between the input and output shafts. Excessive heat generation can lead to the degradation of the fluid, affecting the performance and longevity of the coupling.
As a general guideline, most fluid couplings are designed to operate within a temperature range of -30°C to 80°C (-22°F to 176°F). However, the actual temperature limitations may vary depending on the manufacturer and the application requirements. For specific industrial applications where high-temperature environments are common, fluid couplings with higher temperature tolerances may be available.
It is crucial to consider the operating environment and the power demands of the machinery when selecting a fluid coupling. In applications with extreme temperatures, additional cooling mechanisms such as external cooling fins or cooling water circulation may be employed to maintain the fluid coupling within its safe operating temperature range.
Exceeding the recommended temperature limits can lead to premature wear, reduced efficiency, and even mechanical failure of the fluid coupling. Regular monitoring of the operating temperature and following the manufacturer’s guidelines for maintenance and fluid replacement can help ensure the longevity and reliability of the fluid coupling.
Always consult with the manufacturer or a qualified engineer to determine the specific temperature limitations and suitability of the fluid coupling for your particular application.
Key Components of a Fluid Coupling and Their Functions
A fluid coupling consists of several essential components that work together to transfer torque and facilitate smooth power transmission. The key components and their functions are as follows:
- Impeller: The impeller is the primary input element of the fluid coupling. It is directly connected to the driving shaft and rotates with it. The impeller’s function is to churn and circulate the fluid inside the coupling, creating a flow that generates a hydrodynamic torque.
- Runner/Turbine: The runner, also known as the turbine, is the output element of the fluid coupling. It is connected to the driven shaft and rotates with it. As the fluid from the impeller flows onto the runner, it causes the runner to rotate and transmit torque to the driven load.
- Fluid: The fluid, typically hydraulic oil, is the medium that transmits torque from the impeller to the runner. It fills the space between the impeller and the runner and allows the torque transfer to take place through hydrodynamic action.
- Filler Plug: The filler plug is used to add or drain the fluid from the fluid coupling. It allows for the adjustment of fluid levels, which can influence the coupling’s performance characteristics.
- Seal Ring: The seal ring prevents the fluid from leaking out of the fluid coupling and ensures that the coupling operates with maximum efficiency and minimal losses.
- Bearing: The bearing provides support for the input and output shafts, allowing them to rotate smoothly. Bearings are critical for maintaining alignment and reducing friction within the fluid coupling.
These key components work together to create a hydrodynamic torque transfer, enabling the fluid coupling to smoothly transmit power and torque from the driving shaft to the driven shaft without any physical contact between the two shafts.
