KPTO Series

Power Transmission Equipment

The KPTO is a variable fill fluid coupling enclosed into a casing connected to the diesel engine by means of a SAE housing. The KPTO has been designed to meet customer requirements combining the technical features of a conventional Power Take Off with the performance of a fluid coupling.

The engine flywheel is connected to the KPTO input by a flexible coupling. The output shaft can be connected to the driven machine by an elastic coupling, cardan shaft or pulley.

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