EIDE customizes the EC centrifugal brake
The EC centrifugal ,brake is a safety brake used to prevent uncontrolled falls in cranes, industrial elevators or any type of structure that lifts a load.
The brake consists of the external drum, the masses with the friction material, the retaining springs and the hub.
The external part of the EC centrifugal is painted to create a protective barrier that prevents the appearance of rust and isolates the steel from any environmental conditions.
The EC centrifugal has a peculiarity, the customer can choose the external color, in this way they can take a centrifugal brake that provides the security they need and they can also choose the desired color for it.
Until today we have received different requests that have been carried out.
This brake take advantage of centrifugal force to limit speed, therefore, as they do not require any external power supply, they are the perfect solution for safety applications.
The EC centrifugal are designed for applications where the rated speed is 1000, 1500 or 1800 rpm.
In the event of motorization or motor brake failure, this brake is activated and controls the lowering of the load.
The centrifugal is mounted on the mast climbing work platforms (MCWPs) to comply with the safety section of the EN 1495 standard.
