The M900SH brake caliper is a floating spring applied, hydraulically released brake for use in heavy duty industrial applications. The brake caliper is suitable for outdoor applications and has been designed for use in many different extreme environments. The M900SH is capable of producing 170,000 LBF (750 kN) of braking force.
The floating design can accommodate up to 1 inch of axial movement due to thermal expansion of large equipment such as grinding mills and kilns. The caliper features “Maintenance Mode” which removes all stored spring energy within the cylinder assembly. This allows for brake pad replacement, monitor unit adjustment and seal replacement without the need to remove the brake from service. Engineered fasteners eliminate the need for special tools such as torque multipliers or hydraulic tensioners.
