The EB 500 was designed for use in wind energy converters, ship propulsion and heavy industry. Corrosion protection through chemical nickel plating of the housing parts is standard for this brake. The braking force at p = 100 bar is 68,000 N; for static applications, the maximum pressure is 160 bar.
In addition to pneumatic brakes, a series of hydraulic braking systems are also available. They are especially used where high braking force is needed within a limited space. Depending on the version, the braking system can be operated with either mineral oil or a water-in-oil emulsion. Due to the modular construction and our great variety of parts, these systems can also be optimally customized for a multitude of applications, no matter whether this involves small units for constricted spaces or corrosion-protected high-performance systems for ship engines or off-shore applications.
