Selection And Pricing

Because of variations in fluid coupling design for different sizes and speeds, it is virtually impossible to develop rule-of-thumb methods of estimating costs. The price list of one major fluid drive manufacturer indicates that prices can range from $60 per horsepower for sophisticated machines down to $25 per horsepower for others (in 1984 dollars). Fluid couplings prices can be increased dramatically by specific requirements for exotic controls, backup pumps and heat exchanger equipment, and other accessories. Because of this fact, it is recommended that the manufacturers be contacted to obtain even budget prices.
