SPRING APPLIED, HYDRAULIC PRESSURE RELEASED DISC BRAKE
Dellner Brakes model SKP 50 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 support. The brakes supplied with a support are adjusted for a 12 mm thick brake disc. When used with thicker discs the brakes can be supplied with spacers.
Each brake half has two cylindrical guide pins that transmit the tangential braking force from the brake lining to the brake housing and support. As a result, any radial forces on the brake pistons are minimized which contributes to longer brake life.
Two 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 brakes can be equipped with proximity or mechanical switches to indicate brake ON/OFF and/or NEED OF ADJUSTMENT.
