Product characteristics
• Short reaction periods subject to the short distance between
brake pad and brake disc as well as the low oil volume
• Big pad surface resulting in small surface pressure, low wear
of pads and low temperature
• Low maintenance expenses because of a few mobile
components only
• Drain ports avoid leakages on the brake pad
• Brake pads available from various materials
• Easy replacement of brake pads
• Suitable for rough ambient conditions
KTR-STOP® brake systems designed as yaw brakes show their full strength with aligning and locking the pod in the wind. The permanent swap between „STOP and GO“ requires particularly low-wear components with clamping forces of up to 200 kN or 20 t for each brake to protect the plant permanently against gusts of wind and pulsating load. Depending on the size of plant, up to fourteen active disk brake calipers covering the aforementioned performance are used.
