Nexen's Spring-Engaged, Hydraulically Disengaged Caliper Brakes are engineered for dynamic braking and static holding applications
Nexen's Spring-Engaged, Hydraulically Disengaged Caliper Brakes for dynamic braking and static holding applications are designed to provide reliable operation at -30° F. Nexen Spring-Engaged, Hydraulically Disengaged Caliper Brakes feature fixed-point pivots, allowing equal braking force to be applied to both sides of the brake rotor. Various friction materials can be specified for different applications, and quick-release pins are engineered to allow easy brake shoe removal from the actuator arms.
The actuator uses a nested spring design, which is designed to minimize any spring force losses while also offering the versatility to modify the braking torque based on specific application requirements. Ports with large Cv values are engineered to ensure fast actuation, even when the hydraulic fluid is at lower temperature. Various disengagement pressures are available, ranging from 75 psi to 1,500 psi, and the actuator also features manual disengagement options.
