Eaton Third Generation Water Cooled Brake
16-09-2016

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.

• Drawworks
• Mooring Winches
• Dynamometers
• Paper Mills
