PRESSURE APPLIED, SPRING RELEASED DISC BRAKE
Dellner Brakes model SKD 100 disc brake is a direct acting, hydraulic pressure applied, spring released unit. The braking force achieved is directly proportional to the applied pressure.
The brake consists of two symmetrical halves between which the support structure with variable thicknesses can be mounted to accommodate any brake disc thickness.
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 contributes to longer brake life.
Two springs on each brake half retract the brake pads from the disc when pressure is released. Brake lining wear is automatically compensated for with increased piston stroke.
