Multi-Plate Disc Brakes | Wichita Clutch

Wichita Clutch, utilising technology developed alongside sister-company Industrial Clutch Corporation, produces "wet" brake solutions that generate torque through shearing of the oil layer: This technology, when used for dynamic braking, results in negligible lining wear and is therefore ideal for the limited-access nature of submerged turbine installations. Dry multi-plate units are produced in both brake and clutch derivatives; the latter may be used to provide over-load protection of the drive train when configured as a torque-limiting device.

Product Features

  • Customised spring-applied 'wet' brake units may be configured to provide up to 3MNm dynamic torque
  • Proven in industrial,marine and tidal turbine applications
  • Oil-in-shear technology; dynamic braking with no wear and no debris
  • Rapidly biodegradable hydraulic fluid (fully decomposed by water organisms without affecting the environment) 
  • Designs in excess of 3 MNm dynamic torque rating
  • Highly customisable design to optimise the brake package for torque in the available space
  • Stub or through-shaft layouts
  • High thermal and smooth engagement performance
