Air Applied Tension Brakes
With an air pressure range of 0 - 100 psi, a wide range of tensioning performance can be achieved by Alanco’s pneumatically controlled braking systems. This performance range can be further increased by using a multi caliper brake. Up to eight individual calipers can be mounted around a disc and controlled individually.
A plain disc can be used or, more usually the case, a ventilated disc will be used because a lot of heat can be generated on a continuously running tension application. In addition, an internal fan can be mounted in the brake for extra cooling.Manually Applied Brakes
Manually applied / handwheel brakes are ideal for applications where there is no pneumatic or hydraulic supply. Alanco-Alamatic manufactures manual brakes to suit discs from 125mm to 1000mm diameter and 13mm to 100mm thickness.
