Spring Set Brakes

Clutch Engineering offers Wichita Clutch Spring Set Brakes (SSB) that are used for enhanced safety in industrial environments and for the protection of various mechanical systems. Wichita Spring-Set Air Release Brakes are ideal for fail-safe protection of process equipment. These spring set brakes are similar to the available Low Inertia units, and they are also specially designed to avoid the effects of centrifugal force and self-energization that other products can face. Using low inertia start/stop parts reduces acceleration times, which leads to more cycles per minute and also reduces generated heat. Constructed of high strength cast iron, this improved design has thick friction discs for longer wear life. The fast acting airtube design also assures quick, smooth stops.

Torque range – 451 to 5,355,000 lb-in (51 to 605,016 Nm)
Typical applications – Presses, Shears, Bulk Material Handling and General Industrial Equipment
