The high-strength, high-performance Elephant Brakes by Rietschoten for all industrial offshore applications are tough. Contact with saltwater, floodwaters and storms, major temperature fluctuations, and outages: These elements cause an extremely heavy strain to the components. Nickel-plated Rietschoten disc brakes excel in their utmost reliability and robustness. They are saltwater resistant, completely impermeable (max. IP 67), corrosion-protected, and explosion-proof (Category 2 high safety according to ATEX Directive 94/9/EC), which makes them perfectly suited for oil/gas drilling rigs and other applications at high sea.
