For off-shore applications, components and equipment must resist corrosion. The LI-SSI Series of AquaMaKKs clutches and brakes withstand sea spray and direct seawater splash prevalent in marine deck areas. These brakes provide accurate torque control for constant tensioning in heavy-duty continuous slip tension applications.
They use the basic AquaMaKKs brake housing but have special alloy stainless steel torque (center) plates installed instead of water jackets. An engineered friction material runs against the stainless steel torque plate. The units also use three-part epoxy marine grade paint and stainless steel hardware for added corrosion protection.
These low inertia, air-cooled, spring-set air tube release high torque brakes are available in the 19, 25, and 36 in. AquaMaKks sizes. Units can be easily converted into water-cooled brakes by removing the drive and torque plates and installing patented composite water jackets with their matching drive plates and friction material.
