To operate properly, wind turbines need two types of brakes — one to control the rotor speed to protect the system, and another to keep the turbine facing into the wind. W.C. Branham Sales Manager Pete Wold looks at your options for the two types of wind turbine brakes in this edition of Solutions in Motion.
What are the differences between double live sided fixed mount caliper disc brakes and single live sided floating mount caliper disc brakes? Those are the two options available when specifying and designing in the caliper disc brake for an application.
Many models are available in both options and you can choose between the two depending on your mounting preference. Chad Ranldleman, W.C. Branham's VP Engineering and General Manager, discusses your options in this edition of Solutions in Motion.
What are the options available to you with friction materials when selecting your caliper disc brake? The main three attributes to consider when selecting that material are the material's wear rate, the coefficient of friction, and its energy capacity.
W.C. Branham VP of Engineering and General Manager Chad Randleman explains the coefficient of friction in this edition of Solutions in Motion.
