The range of modular brake systems from Twiflex has been further expanded with the launch of the new VSD Series, which incorporates several of Twiflex’s newest technological improvements. Designed for use in a variety of industrial braking applications – including mining conveyors, hoists, geared grinding mills, offshore deck lifts, and mooring winches – the VSD Series is simple to install, adjust and maintain.
- Comprised of eight model ratings and follows the design principles of the VKSD and VMS2 ranges, featuring two spring module assemblies mounted on each side of a central mounting plate
- Offers braking forces ranging from 100 kN to 220 kN
- Includes a parked-off feature, increased braking forces with lower operating pressures, an optional floating version, and the improved flexibility of a modular design that is not achievable with the similarly rated legacy “VS” range
- Offers a range of status-monitoring options as well as fast and simple adjustment and rapid pad change procedures that require no special tools
