Dellner Brakes is introducing two new failsafe brakes to its SKP range for wind turbines. The new spring applied SKP 180 weighs in at just 315 kg and delivers braking force from 141 kN up to 226 kN through two brake housings, each containing a spring applied piston. The SKP 4 x 180, weighing 630 kg, combines two brake assemblies containing a total of four pistons to deliver braking force of up to 453 kN.
Dellner has also developed an offshore version of the brake, with corrosion protection and hard wearing paint and pistons that are specially designed to withstand harsh conditions. The modular design also means that Dellner can provide larger systems, combining several brake assemblies or customised housings with several pistons, to deliver more braking power, tailored specifically for customers’ needs. The brakes come with a range of optional extras including mounting brackets, double sealing kits, brake pads made from several different friction materials, indicators that show brake pad wear, whether the brake is ON or OFF or needing adjustment, micro and/or proximity switches and electrical control boxes.
