Water cooled tensioning brakes


Eaton has redesigned its 36” water cooled tensioning brakes to create an industry leading high energy absorbing dynamic brake. The improved internal design and increased water flow

allow improved fluid dynamics with better energy dissipation characteristics. The new brake is available with the Airflex dual piston design as well as the air and water cooled combination

style brake that acts as both a dynamic tensioning and static holding brake.

Features & Benefits

  • Highest HP in class - 1000 HP per disc offers faster tripping time and the potential to downsize the brake in the same application
  • More robust design for demanding applications eliminates copper cracking seen in competitive units
  • Self-supporting brake eliminates costly support brackets
  • Higher coolant flow with 60% lower pressure drop
  • Robust Teflon® tape seal eliminates leakage
  • Corrosion resistance standard on all brakes
  • Retrofits to existing WC brake mounting
  • Easier maintenance and wear adjustments, no machining is required for friction or wear plates
  • ABS/CDS Agency Approval; ATEX Certification
