Falk Fluid Couplings Provide xSoft-Touch'

— L i t e r a t u r e A v a i l a b le Falk-Sime fluid couplings now available from The Falk Corporation of Milwaukee, Wis., are designed to provide softer starts, smoother acceleration and more controlled torque than conventional couplings.

Falk reports that the special fluid design absorbs the shock of sudden stops and starts from both the driv- ing motors and the driven machine.

It said that the new Falk-Sime couplings permit matching the torque of the motor to the demands of the driven equipment, thus saving equipment from breakdowns and costly replacement.

Other benefits claimed for the fluid coupling include the ability to balance uneven motor loading by simply adjusting the amount of fluid, to dampen harsh vibrations, and to boost starting torque of a standard NEMA B motor by as much as 200 percent.

Falk-Sime fluid couplings are available to handle loads from 1.00 hp to 800.0 hp. There's a choice of non-delay fill and delay fill types, with options for hollow shaft/sheave output, and sheave input/hollow shaft output designs.

The Falk Corporation, subsidiary of Sundstrand Corporation, manufactures an extensive line of enclosed and open gear drives, backstops, fluid and shaft couplings, fluid power and variable speed drives.
