Voith fill-controlled couplings handle the most difficult drive requirements in a variety of applications in the conveying and processing fields. Belt conveyor systems up to several kilometers long, armored face conveyors (AFC) for underground coal mining operations, heavy-duty shredders, such as those used in metal recycling, and ball mills used in material processing are the main fields of applications for this type of coupling. Voith couplings transmit from a few 100 kW up to several megawatts of power. They ensure controlled acceleration of the driven machine, effectively dampen shocks and vibrations in the drive line, adjust the speed precisely and, in addition, provide effective overload protection. They can be used to easily incorporate a clutching function and provide active load sharing in multi-motor drives.
Voith Turbo has designed the CD-ROM with the view point of the customer in mind: In addition to introducing "Fill-controlled Fluid Couplings" as a product together with the basic principles of operation, examples of applications illustrate the benefits and advantages of using Voith couplings in drive lines. The result is a state-of-the-
