Sectors which company deals in

Due to its capacity to minimise production-related effects while boosting manufacturing efficiency, Fuidomat is a preferred choice for industrial clients.. Company caters to a wide variety of sectors such as


What are variable speed couplings used to do?

Fluid couplings with variable speeds have the potential to reduce the energy required for both the operation of motors and the driven equipment. By lowering the power necessary to run the pump at a lower point along its intended performance curve, more savings can be made.

Constant fill / Fixed speed coupling

Fluidomat offers three circuit types to provide beginning torque as low as 120% of nominal torque in order to fulfil the starting and operating characteristics of industrial machines.

Variable speed scoop coupling

When linked to a fixed speed electric motor, FLUIDOMAT-SC is a variable speed fluid coupling that offers stepless speed variation across a large range. By changing the oil filling in the coupling through a sliding scoop tube while it is in use, the speed variation is produced. As it may react to a variety of electric, pneumatic, or hydraulic signals and is compatible with all sorts of controllers, including pneumatic, hydraulic, electronic, electrical, and manual, it gives versatility in controls. In addition, it provides all the benefits of constant speed fluid coupling, including load limitation, shock and vibration absorption, torsional load absorption, and smooth acceleration. Its built-in safety features make it impenetrable when in use.

Fluid couplings with variable speeds have the potential to reduce the energy required for both the operation of motors and the driven equipment. By lowering the power necessary to run the pump at a lower point along its intended performance curve, more savings can be made.

FNCT fill control coupling

For big drive motors, FNCT Fluid Couplings that function on the basis of hydrodynamic power transfer with fill control are excellent as startup and acceleration control devices. They add to the safety of drive motors and torque gearbox control when used in conjunction with electronic control.

Applications The FNCT couplings may be utilised for a wide range of tasks, including starter work and smooth, controlled acceleration of large loads and inertia.ideally suited for use with belt and pipe conveyors.

Typical applications include

  • Belt conveyor soon underground mines or on surface installations.
  • Pipeconveyors.
  • Crushers.
  • Balland Rod Mills.
  • Shredders.
  • Armored Face Conveyors(AFC).
  • Mixers.
  • Beaters.
  • Other typical applications.

FNIC: Drain type fluid couplings for internal combustion engines

Fluidomat FNIC are drain nozzle type fluid coupling suitable for Combustion Engine Drive.


Oil flows into the working circuit during Power Transmission (clutching) operation through an oil cooler, filter, and solenoid valve. Working circuits constantly leak hot oil into the oil sump.

Sectorial Outlook

In contrast to the global economy, India’s economy is considerably stronger and expanding. There is a lot of demand in the nation as a consequence of the Union Government’s many initiatives, including investments in infrastructure projects. The slowdown in Europe has given the Indian engineering industry a chance to sell to diverse nations, including those in Africa, the Middle East, and the Pacific, and to provide Indian goods to those nations. For simple international expansion, the company has translated its product catalogues into a number of different languages.

The company only operates in one market, the production and sale of high-tech products called “Fluid Couplings” that are primarily used in a variety of industries, such as Thermal Power Plants, Steel, Metal, Cement, Paper, Chemical, Fertilisers, Coal and Ore-mining, and Port handling facilities, among others. New initiatives in these industries make a significant contribution to the company’s expansion and profitability.


Manufacturing fluid couplings and flexible couplings for more than 53 years, Fluidomat is an experienced, debt-free company. It is one of the top producers of fluid couplings in the country and maintains a constant order book. The company has consistently worked to increase operational margins, and as a consequence, over the past three years, net profit has increased at an amazing 30% CAGR. Fluidomat’s potential for development is encouraging despite a modest 7% CAGR increase in sales over the same time, particularly with the government’s Make in India push fueling industrial activity in the country.However, new investors need to be aware of the main risk concerns for the company, which include its extremely low equity capital, the lack of liquidity in its stock, and its placement in the T group on the BSE trading. Investors should also anticipate an extended gestation time before any material gains are realised because the company is a microcap one. Therefore, only those who are prepared to remain persistent over an extended period of time and accept the chance of financial loss should think about investing in this kind of business. It is best to avoid over positioning with these kinds of companies.
