Electro-Thrust Brakes - Electro-Thrust Shoe Brakes (ET Style)
The Electro-Thrust Shoe Brakes have been in service for over 10 years. AISE sizes range from 8 inches in diameter up
to 30 inch diameter wheels. Torque values range from 100 foot-pounds to 9,000 ft./lbs.! We also manufacture a line of non-AISE rated brakes. The
brakes are spring set for fail-safe operation with an electro-hydraulic actuator that overcomes a setting spring and releases the brake. The
actuator is stroked by means of applying power, either AC or DC, to an integral motor attached to a twin cavity housing. The housing is filled
with fluid and as the motor spins it creates fluid motion. As the fluid travels through the housing it applies upward pressure to a piston that
overcomes the setting spring to release the brake. Cutting power to the motor reverses this function and the spring then gently sets the brake.
The Series ET style of shoe brakes are spring set and electrically released by a continuously rated, sealed electrohydraulic actuator. This
brake provides smooth brake setting due to the response of the actuator. This inherent cushion effect is desirable for many brake applications.
Rugged construction makes this brake suitable for steel mill cranes, container cranes, stacker reclaimers, lock and dam gates, and other
