Fluid coupling on Transfluid’s industrial transmission model KPTO.
A fluid coupling is made up of 3 elements, in addition the hydraulic fluid:

The housing, also known as the shell[5] (which must have an oil-tight seal all around the push shafts), consists of the fluid and turbines.
Two turbines (fanlike elements):
A single related to the input shaft identified as the pump or impeller,[five] primary wheel[5] input turbine
The other connected to the output shaft, identified as the turbine, output turbine, secondary wheel[5] or runner
The driving turbine, known as the ‘pump’, (or driving torus[a]) is rotated by the prime mover, which is usually an inner combustion motor or electric motor. The impeller’s movement imparts equally outwards linear and rotational motion to the fluid.
