Twin Caliper Brakes TEXU type

Back to list Send request

Service or emergency stop brakes for heavy duty operation and coasting (e.g. hoist brakes in container cranes or for large belt conveyor systems, bucket wheel excavators, stackers, reclaimers). The brakes of the TEXU series are double operating disc brakes which work according to the precept of a conventially drum brake. The braking force will be transmitted to the brake disc on two symmetrically points.

Consequently the tangential forces at the shaft are compensated. The speciality of this brake is the actuating of both callipers with 2 parallel mounted spring tubes in relation with only one concentrically mounted thruster.

By closing the brake, the force of the springs will be evenly distributed by the linkage to both pairs of brake levers.

Now the levers move identical towards the shaft and thereby the separate beared calipper levers will be effected with wedges and rolls.

Furthermore the brake is equipped with a synchronisation linkage, which ensures an evenly spaced out air gap at all 4 linings. The wear of the linings and the consequently increasing air gap will be compensated by our reliable automatic wear compensation.

  reduced initial costs

  reduced operating costs due to smaller brake disc

  increased number of moves due to reduced disc inertia

  higher friction coefficient = higher torque = increased safety even under emergency stop conditions from overspeed

  safe load handling in case of grid failure

Torque range 8000-30000 Nm on discs 500-900 mm.
