The invention relates to a device for dewatering a fibrous web with a press zone which is formed by a mating element with a curved surface and a permeable press belt which wraps at least partially around the curved surface and has a running side and a contact side contacting a second side of the fibrous web. A permeable carrier belt arranged between the mating element and the fibrous web guides the fibrous web through the press zone. The device is configured so a fluid can flow through the press belt, the fibrous web, and the permeable carrier belt at least in a part region of the press zone. The permeable press belt is configured to generate a pressing pressure in the press zone when a tensile stress of at least 20 kN/m is applied and the contact side is adapted to a quality of the fibrous web produced.

The invention relates to a hydrodynamic machine, in particular a hydrodynamic coupling, having a bladed primary wheel and a stationary or revolving bladed secondary wheel, forming a working chamber in order to transmit torque hydrodynamically. The primary wheel and/or the secondary wheel is rotatably mounted by means of at least one plain bearing, which is lubricated by a lubricant source connected by way of at least one lubricant supply line, and a lubricant outlet which is connected by way of a lubricant discharge line, such that in the lubricant supply line and/or the lubricant discharge line a lubricant reservoir, connected to the at least one plain bearing by means of at least one lubricant feed conduit and at least one lubricant return conduit and therefor forming a lubricant circuit, is provided in the event of a failure of the lubricant supply from the lubricant source.

A hydraulic drive including a first differential cylinder that includes a first and a second pressure chamber and a first piston that separates the first from the second pressure chamber and having two pumps delivering in opposite direction. The hydraulic drive further includes a second differential cylinder that includes a first and a second pressure chamber and a second piston that separates the first pressure chamber from the second pressure chamber, and a directional control valve that has a first and a second switching position. The pumps in the first switching position are respectively hydraulically connected via pressure chambers of the first differential cylinder that are different from each other and whereby the pumps in the second switching position are respectively connected via pressure chambers of the second differential cylinder that are different from each other.

A cooling circuit for a motor vehicle having a cooling medium pump that circulates a cooling medium in the cooling circuit having a hydrodynamic retarder. The cooling circuit further includes a main circuit in which the cooling medium pump and a drive motor of the motor vehicle, as well as a heat exchanger are positioned. A secondary branch of the cooling circuit includes a feed that branches off from the main circuit at a branch-off point and ends in the hydrodynamic retarder, and a return which proceeds from the hydrodynamic retarder and ends at a junction location in the main circuit. The return ends upstream of the branch-off location of the feed as viewed in a flow direction of the cooling medium in the main circuit, however on the same side of the cooling medium pump or at the branch-off location of the feed in the main circuit.
