Our heavy-duty oil rig caliper disc brakes are ideal for these demanding applications. For drilling and service rig applications, our disc brakes can come spring set and hydraulic or air released. Hydraulic or air applied brakes are also available.   For more information please contact a Kor-Pak representative.  Our Oil Rig Brake Engineering Questionnaire is a useful guide to get you started.
