A modular design allows for Dellner's most powerful braking capacity by combining two SKD 140 brake assemblies

Dellner Brakes is introducing two new heavy-duty disc brakes to its SKD range that are claimed to offer outstanding stopping power at extremely competitive prices through a new modular design.

Designed for stopping rotary motion and statically holding load in large marine vessels and industrial machinery, Dellner’s new SKD 140 brake delivers braking force of up to 258kN through two brake housings, each containing a powerful hydraulic piston. The SKD 4x140 brake combines two brake assemblies containing a total of four powerful hydraulic pistons to deliver braking force of up to 516kN, making it Dellner’s most powerful brake yet.

Dellner can also provide larger systems, combining several brake assemblies or customised housings with several pistons. Dellner has also developed an offshore version of the brake, with corrosion protection and hard wearing paint and pistons designed to withstand harsh conditions.

Marcus Åberg, CEO, Dellner Brakes, said: “Our new SKD brakes deliver more stopping power than ever before and we are confident that this brand new modular design from Dellner Brakes will prove very popular with engineers and specifiers looking for powerful, cost-effective braking solutions for larger applications, both on and offshore.

The new SKD brakes feature cylindrical guide pins that transmit the tangential braking force from the brake lining to the brake housing and mounting stand. As a result, the brake pistons are not subject to any radial forces, which makes the brakes last much longer.

The brakes come with a range of optional extras including mounting brackets, double sealing kits, brake pad materials; wear indicators, micro switches and electrical control boxes.

Dellner Brakes will be exhibiting at Nor-Shipping (Booth E04-02) from 30 May to 2 June.
