An electrically operated solenoid valve allows the fluid coupling circuit to be fed when it is turned ON. The oil drains through calibrated orifices found on the outer diameter of the fluid coupling. When it is turned OFF, it disengages the motor from the load.

The motor flywheel is connected to the KPTO enter by a flexible coupling. The output shaft can be connected to the pushed equipment by an elastic coupling, cardan shaft or pulley.

China fluid coupling
KPTO is a variable fill fluid coupling enclosed into a casing linked to the diesel engine by signifies of a SAE housing. The KPTO has been made to fulfill consumer needs combining the technical characteristics of a typical Energy Consider Off with the functionality of a fluid coupling.
