What Is A Torque Converter?

Comparison between Torque Converter and Fluid Coupling


Torque Converter
Fluid Coupling
Construction elements - Impellor turbine blade and stator
Construction elements- impeller and turbine blade

Stator and turbine use the curved blades
Straight blades are used

Torque multiplication possible

Torque multiplication not possible

Returning oil aid the movement of  impellor

Returning oil oppose the direction of impeller, and it cause energy loss as heat
