SPRING APPLIED, HYDRAULIC PRESSURE RELEASED DISC BRAKE
Dellner Brakes model SKP 220 spring applied, hydraulically released disc brake offers a reliable and safe method of braking linear or rotary motion.
The brake consists of two symmetrical halves and can be supplied with or without a mounting stand.
Each brake half has two cylindrical guide pins that transmit the tangential braking force from the brake lining to the brake housing and mounting stand. As a result, the brake pistons are not subject to any radial forces which contribute to longer brake life.
Four springs on each brake half retract the brake pads from the disc when pressure is applied.
The disc spring pack must be adjusted to compensate for brake lining wear and to maintain full brake capacity. An extension of the brake piston through the adjustment nut gives an easy visual way to tell when adjustment is needed.
As an option the brake can be equipped with proximity switches to indicate brake ON/OFF and/or NEED OF ADJUSTMENT.
