Product Guide for Kobelt High Energy Input Brake Calipers
High Energy Input Brake Calipers
These calipers were designed for extremely high energy input applications. They have a large shoe area which gives them long brake lining life. The brake lining supplied with these calipers has a coefficient of friction between 0.45 to 0.55. These calipers are available in pressure applied or spring applied. Air or hydraulic pressure can be used to either apply or release the brake. The maximum pressure for the pressure applied models is 100 P.S.I. (6.9 bar), and 250 P.S.I. (17 bar) for the spring applied brakes. The torque ratings are the same for either the pressure applied or spring applied version.
