Types Of Fluid Couplings

The term fluid coupling can be loosely used to describe any device utilizing a fluid to transmit power. The fluid is invariably a natural or synthetic oil because oil is capable of transmitting power,is a lubricant, and is able to absorb and dissipate heat.Manufacturers have tried water as the fluid in fluid couplings, but sealing problems (keeping water out of the bearings and oil out of the water) and corrosion have prevented its use in any standard catalog drive.

All fluid couplings may be broken down in four categories:

1. Hydrokinetic

2. Hydrodynamic

3. Hydroviscous

4. Hydrostatic
