Floating Housing Brake

Eaton’s passion for developing revolutionary new disc brake technology led to the development of the Floating House Brake (FHB)—a patented braking concept that uses a floating housing instead of a floating rotor. Rated for over 430,000 lb-in of torque, these spring-applied, air-cooled disc brakes are commonly used in applications like surface mining, oilfields and other heavy-duty industrial machinery. The Airflex FHB both maximizes friction life and offers a rapid friction replacement capability.

Addresses these engineering challenges:

  • Rated for over 430,000 lb-in of torque
  • Patented braking concept uses a floating housing instead of a floating rotor
  • Multiple brake installation designs exist for industry leading motors
  • Fixed hub and rotor design

Product Features:

  • Long-wearing organic friction material and a rugged, solid-cast rotating disc reduce inertia compared to typical
  • caliper brakes
  • Designed to fit and interface with multiple, industry-leading motor frames
  • Fixed hub and rotor design extends product life by eliminating wear during free-wheeling
  • 360 degree annular disc reduces overall maintenance downtime by extending the life of friction pads, which
  • are also easier to change
  • Exclusive shaft lock assembly improves installation speed and safety
