The A400 is an arm style caliper brake designed to accept a large selection of Hilliard thrusters. These thrusters include spring applied hydraulic released, spring applied pneumatic released, hydraulic applied spring released, and pneumatic applied spring released. The 400 requires a minimum disc diameter of 24" and is offered in 2 sizes to accommodate a 1" and 1-1/2" thick disc. The design of the caliper allows the user to quickly convert between right and left handed designs eliminating the need for multiple part numbers.
The AS thruster is a direct applied thruster that is pneumatically applied spring released. The Pneumatic applied thrusters are offered in multiple sizes to meet the needs of our customers. The T400 AS thruster produces a maximum braking force of 8400 pounds at the maximum operating pressure of 67 psi. (This thruster is only to be used on the A400 caliper)
