Water Cooled Brakes (WCB) are designed for constant slip and severe high heat braking applications. The brakes are air actuated and cooled with a continuous flow of coolant from either a closed or open loop cooling system. WCB brakes are specifically designed for applications in which large thermal loads must be dissipated.
Available with two actuation methods, either airtube or piston. The airtube is corrosion resistant and no special coatings or treatments are required. Field service is simple and error free.
Retrofit kits are available to convert an existing single or dual piston actuated WCB to airtube actuation with no other modifications required.
Typical applications include:
- Forestry / logging equipment
- Anchor handling and towing winches
- Mooring winch systems
- Petroleum drilling equipment and tension brakes
