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

The engine flywheel is connected to the KPTO input by a flexible coupling. The output shaft can be connected to the driven device 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 means of a SAE housing. The KPTO has been developed to meet up with customer specifications combining the specialized features of a traditional Electricity Just take Off with the functionality of a fluid coupling.
