Brake Systems Application Guide
 
TYPICAL DESCRIPTION AND APPLICATIONS HYDRAULIC BRAKES
 
DESCRIPTION
Type H manually operated hydraulic brakes for smooth controlled service stops. Sizes are 6" through 18" with torque ratings 150 to 900 ft-lbs.; one and two brake systems.
 
TYPICAL APPLICATIONS
Bridge brakes for overhead, gantries and heavy duty cranes. The hydraulic brakes described in the following pages have been utilized for many years in steel mill cranes, shipyards and other applications where an "operator" control stop is desirable.
 
DESCRIPTION
Type HM brakes not only provide smooth controlled stopping but are also equipped with a spring applied parking actuator. Sizes for single brake systems 6" through 18", two brake systems 6" and 8".
 
TYPICAL APPLICATIONS
Bridge brakes for "outdoor" cranes that require parking feature due to wind loads.
 
DESCRIPTION
Type AH-ARC (Air/Hydraulic Air Remote Control) brake system for stopping large loads. Sizes one, two and four brake systems - 6" through 18".
 
TYPICAL APPLICATIONS
Large overhead crane brakes for ladle cranes and other hot metal cranes, usually four brakes systems.
 
DESCRIPTION
Type AH-H RC (Air/Hydraulic-Hydraulic Remote Control) brake systems with operator hydraulic control. Sizes one, two and four brake systems - 6" through 18".
 
TYPICAL APPLICATIONS
Bridge brakes for overhead crane with moving trolley cabs that require more than 60 feet travel.
 
DESCRIPTION
Type AH-ERC systems for operating hydraulic brakes by radio or pendent control. Size one, two and four brake systems - 6" through 8" brake.
 
TYPICAL APPLICATIONS
Any remote radio or pendent control brake requirement for bridge brakes.
 
DESCRIPTION
Type AH-ERC Conversion package adds remote control capability to existing H brake systems. Size one and two brake systems.
 
TYPICAL APPLICATIONS
Field modification for remote control capabilities on existing manual system.
 
DESCRIPTION
Type AHM System. All three of the previously described air over hydraulic systems can be provided with parking. (AHM-ARC, AHM-HRC, and AHM-ERC).
 
TYPICAL APPLICATIONS
As previously described but with parking for outdoor crane applications.
 
DESCRIPTION
Type TMH System for remote operation of DC Electric Brake assemblies. Auxiliary cab control also allows hydraulic operation for controlled braking. sizes are 4' to 23", one and two brake systems.
 
TYPICAL APPLICATIONS
Bridge brakes for overhead cranes. Since electric brake is spring set, parking feature is also present.
 
Note: Auxiliary cab control is also available for EH style electro-thrust brakes.
