centrifugal brakes


A centrifugal brake works using the same principal as the centrifugal clutch, but in this case the clutch drum is locked against rotation. Characteristically the centrifugal brake does not bring the load to a total rest but controls the rate of rotation and prevents over speeding. Typical applications for centrifugal brakes are abseiling equipment, cranes, elevators and rolling gates.

Centrifugal brakes are often used as a backup brake or failsafe system for electrically operated spring applied brakes, as they function automatically without the need for an input signal. In the case of the customer providing the brake housing we provided the brake rotor assembly alone.
