Fluid coupling on Transfluid’s industrial transmission design KPTO.
A fluid coupling is composed of three components, plus the hydraulic fluid:

The housing, also identified as the shell[five] (which have to have an oil-restricted seal close to the generate shafts), contains the fluid and turbines.
Two turbines (fanlike parts):
One connected to the enter shaft known as the pump or impeller,[five] main wheel[5] enter turbine
The other linked to the output shaft, identified as the turbine, output turbine, secondary wheel[5] or runner
The driving turbine, acknowledged as the ‘pump’, (or driving torus[a]) is rotated by the key mover, which is typically an inside combustion engine or electric powered motor. The impeller’s movement imparts both outwards linear and rotational motion to the fluid.
