Marine conditions test any component, including brakes. The MCB Series caliper brakes feature special corrosion protection to withstand the harsh marine environment of offshore platforms. They suit static holding and emergency stopping of ac and dc draw works and rugged duty on platform cranes and hoists.
Six models of the MCB Series brakes, ranging in braking force from 30 kN to 200 kN, operate seamlessly with all common, primary and secondary braking systems including electrical, mechanical and hydrodynamic retarding devices.
Supplied either as a positive direct-acting brake or a spring-applied hydraulic-released version, each brake comprises a caliper body with a choice of actuators fitted between the arms. The brake is adjusted to fit a disc up to 36 mm (1.42 in.) thickness and 1,100 mm (43.3 in.) minimum diameter.
