Shaft Brakes

Air Caliper Disc Brake

Clutch Engineering offers Kobelt air disc brakes as a rugged and durable air caliper disc brake solutions. These products give dependable control in either air- applied or released designs. The brakes will last in the harshest conditions, due to their construction of bronze and stainless steel. In these products, low pressure actuators with large areas are used to apply the force against a mechanical lever, multiplying the brake application forces with a lever ratio of approximately 3.6:1 and up to 5:1. Easy maintenance is a focal point of the design. This helps to reduce downtime. Torque – 250 to 93,000 ft-lbs Typical applications – Draw-works, hoists, winches, marine propulsion

GMR Caliper Brakes

Twiflex GMR series caliper brakes have been constructed to meet challenging braking needs that many industries face. Twiflex discs are manufactured from spheroidal graphite cast iron, which is the preferred material, and a range of standard discs in different thicknesses are available from Twiflex. Usually, one or two calipers are used per disc, ideally mounted at 3 or 9 o'clock. Although, with larger diameter discs, more can be used. These great products are available with pneumatically, hydraulically, or spring applied thrusters. Braking force: 1,348 to 8,093 lb (6 to 36 kN) Typical applications: Metals processing, conveyors, grinding mills, wind turbines, amusement rides, marine propulsion

VC Clutches and Brakes

Available form Clutch Engineering, the Eaton Airflex VC element assembly is often used for grinding mills, marine propulsion systems, and metal forming machinery. This high-quality clutch and brake product is an air-actuated constricting drum unit. The VC's ventilated design and construction allows for the rapid dissipation of heat that can be generated during operation. The torque that the unit experiences is carried by torque bars, and leaf springs function to retract the friction shoes when air pressure is released. Due to this construction, all components are conveniently available as replacement parts when refurbishing the unit. The type VC element assembly is specifically constructed for severe clutch or brake applications. These include applications in which large inertia loads and sustained slippage would otherwise result in a loss of torque and a reduced operating life. Torque range: 27,000 to 3,660,000 lb-in (3,050 to 413,057 Nm) Typical applications: Grinding mills, marine propulsion, metal forming machinery
