DESCRIPTION
START-UP
FLEXIDYNE dry fluid couplings are a unique concept
to provide soft start and momentary overload protection for
all types of driven equipment. Standard NEMA-B motors
with RPM base speeds of 1750, 1160 or 860 are
commonly used with a FLEXIDYNE, yet other available
power sources may be used with the FLEXIDYNE.
The dry "fluid" in the FLEXIDYNE is heat treated steel
shot. A measured amount, referred to as flow charge, is
added into a housing which has been keyed to the motor
shaft. When the motor is started, centrifugal force throws
the flow charge to the perimeter of the housing, packs it
between the housing and the rotor which in turn transmits
power to the load.
After the starting period
of slippage between housing
and rotor the two become
locked together and achieve
full load speed, operating
without slip and with 100%
efficiency.
1. Remove one of the filler plugs and install ½ the proper
amount of flow charge specified in Table 1. Replace and
tighten filler plug, making sure that no flow charge is
trapped in the threads. Remove other filler plug and install
the remaining ½ of specified amount of flow charge
repeating the same procedure. Tighten filler plug to 200
inch-pounds torque.
2. Attach AC ammeter (conventional clamp-on or
equivalent) to one line of the AC motor. Set range to cover
200% of motor nameplate current.
3. Note maximum allowable acceleration time for
FLEXIDYNE as stated in Tables 1 and 2. Note: Table 2
lists starting time capacity for starting cycles occurring
more than once every 2 hours.
4. Push start button. Observe motor current during load
acceleration and number of seconds required to reach full
speed (Fig. 2).
Increase amount of flow charge if:
A. Acceleration time reaches maximum allowable
before load is up to speed. Turn off power
immediately if this time is reached.
B. Acceleration amperage is below motor nameplate.
Decrease amount of flow charge if:
A. Acceleration time is less than 1½ seconds.
B. Acceleration amperage is above 200% of motor
nameplate.
Consequently, the motor
accelerates instantly to base
speed, while the load starts
gradually and smoothly.
INSTALLATION
Method 1:
Install coupling flange on motor shaft and drive
housing mechanism on driven shaft in accordance with the
instructions packaged with the TAPER-LOCK® bushings
(Manual #499645). Note: The coupling flange must be
mounted on motor shaft (not driven shaft) to allow
proper operation of the FLEXIDYNE. Shaft ends must
not protrude beyond bushing ends. Install coupling disc
over pins on drive housing mechanism. Position motor and
driven unit so that spacer buttons on coupling flange just
contact the drive housing and coupling flange (Reference
dimension "A" on page 5).
Method 2:
If motor and driven unit are to be positioned before
mounting FLEXIDYNE, shaft ends should be spaced apart
by dimension "B" on page 5. Slide bushing and coupling
flange onto motor shaft. Install coupling disc over pins on
drive housing mechanism. Install drive housing
mechanism on driven shaft and coupling flange on motor
shaft per instructions packed with the TAPER-LOCK
bushings, so that the spacer buttons on the coupling disc
just contact the drive housing and coupling flange
(Reference dimension "A" on page 5). Make certain that
shaft ends do not protrude beyond bushing ends.
For longest FLEXIDYNE coupling life, it is always
desirable to align coupling as accurately as possible at
initial installation. Check alignment by laying a straight
edge across the coupling flange and drive housing at
several points around the circumference.

Caution: The rotor of the
FLEXIDYNE must slip during
acceleration to allow flow
charge to become evenly
distributed in the FLEXIDYNE
housing. Therefore, DO NOT
ALLOW FLEXIDYNE TO
RUN "FREE" (that is, without
a load on the driven end),
otherwise a dangerous outof-balance condition may
result.
The amount of flow charge in the FLEXIDYNE
determines the acceleration time for a given load. Longer
acceleration times will occur when less flow charge is
used and faster acceleration, from stop to full speed, will
be observed with greater amounts of flow charge.
OPERATION
The FLEXIDYNE should start the load smoothly and
without delay provided the proper amount of flow charge
has been used. Should the acceleration time exceed the
maximum allowable in Table 1, shut off power to the
FLEXIDYNE immediately. Allow the FLEXIDYNE to cool,
then add small amounts of flow charge until proper
acceleration is observed.
Vibration is an indication of accelerating too rapidly
and not allowing flow charge to become evenly distributed
in the FLEXIDYNE housing. This can be corrected by
removing small amounts of flow charge until vibration
subsides. Other causes of vibration are, undersize
shafting, unit not installed far enough on shaft, worn bore
in the unit, or mis-alignment.
Slippage – The FLEXIDYNE can, without slipping,
transmit overloads up to 130% of its present starting
torque. Should this breakaway torque be exceeded the
FLEXIDYNE will slip and generate heat (see Overload
Protection). Although slippage usually indicates increased
loads, it can also be caused by worn flow charge or a worn
rotor especially if the FLEXIDYNE has been in operation
for some time. The necessity to replace either a rotor or
flow charge will be made evident by a loss in power
transmitting capacity of the FLEXIDYNE.
the same acceleration time. A longer time between starts
will dissipate more heat; therefore, higher starting
horsepowers may be transmitted, or longer acceleration
times may be allowable. (See Starting Cycle)
MAINTENANCE
For average industrial applications involving 3 or 4
starts a day of not more than 6 seconds acceleration time
each, the flow charge should be changed every 10,000
hours of operation. For more severe conditions, visually
inspect flow charge at more frequent intervals; it should be
changed when it has deteriorated to a half powder, half
granular condition. Visual inspections should continue until
enough flow charge changes have been made to
adequately establish a schedule for renewing FLEXIDYNE
flow charge.
Acceleration times shown in Table 1 are for starting
frequencies of one start per hour or less. If starting
frequency is more than once per hour, use acceleration
time for actual starting cycle shown in Table 2.
Acceleration times listed in Tables 1 & 2 are the
MAXIMUM permissible for the various starting frequencies
listed. The MINIMUM acceleration time required for proper
FLEXIDYNE operation is 1 to 1½ seconds. This is the time
required for the flow charge to be uniformly distributed
around the housing cavity before the unit "locks in". Any
acceleration time between the minimum and maximum
listed is acceptable, although a shorter acceleration time
will generally provide longer wear life. For applications
requiring a specific acceleration time (within these limits)
flow charge may be added or removed to produce the
required results.
The FLEXIDYNE has been lubricated at the factory
and no further lubrication is required. Never apply grease,
oil or any other foreign material to the flow charge.
OVERLOAD PROTECTION
A Thermal Cutout is available from Dodge and is
recommended for FLEXIDYNE Size 9 where slippage
(due to overloads, starting or reversing) is frequent or
prolonged. Its function is to protect against excessive heat
which may be generated by the FLEXIDYNE, A Speed
Drop Cutout is available from Dodge for FLEXIDYNE Size
11 for installation where overloads or jamming may occur.
Stalled – If a jam-up stalls the drive, the motor
continues to run and the FLEXIDYNE slips. This causes
heat to be generated at twice the rate of normal
acceleration. Therefore, the allowable slipping time, when
stalled, is half the allowable acceleration time given in
Table 1.
Either unit can be installed to send a signal to interrupt
the motor current and, if desired, activate a bell, light or
other warning device. Cutout switches are intended for
use in control circuits only and are not recommended for
dc current nor should they be used directly in the line to
the motor. Both units are available in special explosionproof models for hazardous atmospheres.
Starting Cycle is the time from the beginning of one
acceleration to the beginning of the next. Allowable
acceleration times in Table 2 are based on the assumption
that the FLEXIDYNE will be running continuously except
for a momentary stop before the next start. If the stop is
more than momentary, decrease the actual starting cycle
by one-half the stopped time before using Table 2; far
example, with a 50 minute actual starting cycle of which
20 minutes is stopped time, decrease 50 by half of 20 to
give 40 minutes as the starting cycle time to use for Table
2.
THERMAL CAPACITY
Since there is slippage within the flow charge during
acceleration, heat is generated from friction. The thermal
capacity of the FLEXIDYNE is based on balancing this
heat generated during acceleration against the cooling
time between accelerations. The amount of heat
generated is determined by the amount of horsepower
dissipated by slipping and the duration of each
acceleration. If the flow charge weight is light, the heat
generated will not be as great as that which would be
generated with a heavier flow charge, when compared at
Grouped Starts –For several starts grouped together
followed by uninterrupted running, add the acceleration
times of all starts and consider it as the time for one start.
The starting cycle would be the time from the beginning of
one group of starts to the beginning of the next group.
