Negative Pneumatic Caliper Brakes
The Coremo B-N type negative pneumatic caliper brake is operated by helical springs which generate a constant clamping force. The braking forces of the two standard models, B1N and B2N, are 1300 [N] and 2850 [N] respectively. To release the brake, an air pressure of no more than 6 [bar] is required.
The brake must be installed horizontally so that the weight of the thruster does not rest on the levers. On request, the brake can be equipped with a lever balancing system to allow vertical installation, specifying whether the thruster is to point to six o’clock (H6) or twelve o’clock (H12). The SG iron caliper is designed to withstand the mechanical and thermal stresses generated in compliance with satisfactory safety coefficients. The lining pads can be adjusted to ensure that the friction surfaces grip the brake disc at all points.
Quality controls ensure a reliable, safe product and trouble-free caliper operation. The brake is suitable for applications where emergency, parking, holding or service stops are required.
The ALLTORQ service is completed by reporting which includes calculations, FEM analyses and technical reports (all in English) supplied to the customer to complete the technical documentation of the machine on which the brakes are to be installed. This enables customers to make comments on the design variables and allows the Technical Department to adjust the design to provide the most suitable solution.
