A fluid coupling as a genuine remanufactured part is subject to the same standard of quality as applies to series production. That means that our genuine remanufactured spare part offers impressive robustness and protects the friction clutch from overloading at the same time. This Mercedes-Benz Genuine Remanufactured part enables especially powerful, precise and wear-free starting procedures without imposing any thermal limits during maneuvering. The fluid coupling from Mercedes-Benz offers maximum engine power available across the full rpm range and opens up significant cost benefits thanks to our remanufacturing process.
The fluid coupling, also known as a hydraulic clutch or wear-free integrated starting and braking device, is responsible for power transmission in heavy-duty vehicles. It enables the working engine to start up without wear even in the toughest operating conditions. Only once the engine has reached its rated speed will the truck start to move. The purpose of the hydraulic clutch is to limit the released torque independently so as to protect the engine and the truck. This allows damage and downtime to be prevented as effectively as possible.
The fluid coupling is subjected to considerable forces, which is why the material from which the parts are made needs to meet the high quality standards of Mercedes-Benz. The remanufacturing process includes replacing all wear parts with genuine parts. This ensures that the remanufactured part is of a comparable level of quality to a new part after remanufacturing. By opting for our genuine remanufactured parts, you can save money and protect the environment at the same time, because manufacturing new parts is more expensive and consumes more resources than our genuine remanufactured spare parts.
