The F-TORQ can be applied in motor driven systems where the reliability needs to be improved. The F-TORQ eliminates or significantly reduces problems associated with misalignment, vibrations, noise and shocks. The F-TORQ could be used for fixed speed applications where motor and load run at the same speed. The F-TORQ could also be applied in combination with an VFD, where in that case the load can be controlled in speed by the VFD. The installation becomes more robust and reliable. Also laser alignment is not required anymore. The standard range of the F-TORQ is for motors with a capacity of 7,5 to 375 kW. The tailor made range of the F-TORQ is depending on the application up to 2MW.

Specific Benefits of a F-TORQ
Installation are always to large engineered. Because of the limited speed reduction implied by using a F-TORQ you will also get an energy saving of 2%. You chose a F-TORQ for the mechnatical benefits, but for your Total Cost of Ownership Calculation you can take these savings into account. At higher powers (>250kW) it results in significant savings.
The magnetic coupling is the solution for many known problems which we have come to accept through time. It is no longer necessary to carry out expensive and often recurring shaft alignments and incur high costs through the damage that is caused by misalignment.
Each coupling is calculated for the specifications of the system. To be able to select the correct coupling our Zytec Certified Partners collect basic motor, load and ambient condition information about the installation. They also identify the objective of the installation of the Zytec coupling – reliabilty increase, energy saving, maintenance reduction, etc. By acquiring this information we can ensure that your system will function more efficient and reliably as before.
What are the costs?
Maintenance, repairs, energy wastage and the costs of shutting down the system are all part of the Total Cost of Ownership of your installation. The installation of the contact-free magnetic coupling results in reduced wear to both the motor and the load side: shock loads are dampened; damage from misalignment is eliminated; cold start-up problems are reduced/eliminated with torque ramping up from start; etc. all of which result in lower maintenance costs. The preventative maintenance schedule can be amended. The coupling itself has a robust design and needs little maintenance. This all results in longer operational periods, certainly through the reduction of unplanned stoppages for repairs.
Using Zytec F-TORQ results in lower Total Cost of Ownership of your total installation. You will make immediate savings on the hidden costs. The visible costs will often be recovered within industries expected pay-back time. Each coupling is tailored according to your system specifications. The Zytec Certified Partners will be pleased to help you in selecting the correct coupling for your installation and calculating the total Cost pof Ownership and the payback period.
