Piston Motor Brakes



The piston motor brake bolts directly to the motor with the same interface as the motor. The brake consists of two spring applied shoes pressed against a central hub. These shoes are released by applying air pressure to the cylinder/piston assembly. The brake torque can be varied by means of two spring adjusters but it is normally set that a pilot pressure of 60 p.s.i. will fully release it. The brakes are set at the plant but it may be necessary to make adjustments on site to suit the individual application.
