Other designs utilize individual springs acting on each roller. This allows different energizing forces to cause one or more of the rollers to engage in the load carrying position prematurely, or to skew.

The cage forces all the rollers to engage simultaneously, accurately maintaining their relative positions, thereby assuring that each roller will carry an equal share of the load. Other designs utilize individual springs acting on each roller. This allows different energizing forces to cause one or more of the rollers to engage in the load carrying position prematurely, or to skew. This action will concentrate the full clutch load on one or just a few rollers causing destruction and failure of the rollers and clutch. No Loose Parts Rollers are contained in a spring-actuated cage. The parts will not spill or drop if field disassembly should be required. No Backlash When the string is lowered and the drum shaft rotates the outer race of the clutch, the spring-actuated roller cage uniformly and instantaneously moves all of the rollers into the driving position.

    Thruster Disc Brakes (7)

      IMG_0594Thruster Disc Brakes are successfully used in many industries for various applications and Kor-Pak Corporation is your primary source for Thruster Drum brakes sales, service, and support.

    Spring-Applied, Fail-Safe Thruster Disc Brakes

    Thruster Disc Brakes are spring-set and thruster released; the thruster is electro-hydraulic, 3-phase, including a motor and hydraulic fluid.  When power is removed, the friction lining of the brake pad applies to the rotating disc which creates friction and ultimately stops the rotating disc from moving.

    Benefits of Thruster Disc Brakes

    Thruster disc brakes possess a scalable torque tube which means that torque can be ostensibly adjusted which is ideal; for instance, as the linings gradually bed into the wheel (burnish), greater mechanical braking torque will be achieved and consequently the torque may need to be reduced.  Compared to magnetic disc brakes, the brake operator can set the exact torque amount which yields more precise braking and enhanced safety. Thruster disc brakes also provide a clean, efficient, and economical package.  Thrusters can accommodate high temperatures, especially with the addition of silicone fluid and high-temperature kits.  Furthermore, a lowering valve/time delay can be added to the thruster to time the setting of the brake, and set/release limit switches can also be added.  This is an ideal setup to be used in conjunction with variable frequency drives.  External torque springs and self-adjust mechanisms for lining wear compensation are also ideal features of these brakes.

    Disc Brakes vs. Drum Brakes

    The benefits of disc brakes is that its friction pads apply to a flat surface as opposed to a curved surface (drum brakes).  Gripping onto a flat surface invariably yields greater contact and ultimately more mechanical braking torque.  Also, to compensate for an uneven load of standard caliper disc brakes, a 
    Dual-Caliper Disc Brake is also available which creates a balanced load and mitigates risks that are associated with an overhung load. [caption id="attachment_1723" align="alignright" width="300"]Thruster Released Dual Caliper Disc Brake Thruster Released Dual Caliper Disc Brake[/caption]

    Ease of Maintenance

    Thruster disc brakes consist of an electro-hydraulic actuator/thruster and the movement.  Thrusters can be repaired for an affordable price and reconditioned to “like new” condition.  Brake pad can be easily replaced or relined, and the movement will last long and may need to be reconditioned on occasion.  Overall, thruster brakes are designed to be “hands-off” and maintenance friendly brakes, making them an ideal choice for numerous applications such as steel mills (i.e. hoist and bridge/trolley brakes in melt shops), moveable structures (bridge brakes), container crane brakes, and many more.

    Contact a Kor-Pak representative today to assist you with your wind wind turbine braking needs. There are many aspects to windmill brakes, or wind turbine brakes and Kor-Pak covers them all. You can get expert advice on yaw brakes, blade pitch brakes, and rotor brakes as well as rotor locks, shaft locks, and linear actuators. For a reliable partner in your wind turbine brake needs, contact Kor-Pak today.

    Yaw Brakes

    A full array of caliper solutions is available from Kor-Pak to meet the yaw braking force requirements of any size wind turbine. All brake models are robust, hydraulically activated, and direct applied. Models with up to 40kN braking force, featuring two-bolt side mounting, are designed for light to medium-duty applications. We also have brake models featuring four-bolt center mounting, is ideal for use in medium sized turbines.  Our base mounted caliper is designed for larger, heavy-duty turbine applications. All models of yaw brakes function as static holding brakes when the nacelle is positioned into the wind. Typically, Kor-Pak caliper brakes may act directly on the yaw ring or Matrix plate-type brakes are mounted on the non-driving end of the yaw motors.

    Rotor Brakes

    [caption id="attachment_3988" align="alignright" width="300"]
    Windmill Rotor Brakes Windmill Rotor Brakes[/caption] Kor-Pak rotor brakes are in operation today on hundreds of wind turbines around the world. All models are fully assembled,provide high levels of reliability,easy electronic monitoring and maintenance,and are available with organic or metallic linings. Friction liners are carefully sized to ensure adequate heat dissipation during an emergency stop, with even pressure distribution across pad surfaces. Models are offered in a range of braking forces from 100N to 1MN to meet the braking torque requirements of the most common turbine sizes. Rotor brake models are available as both standard and floating models. Floating, single-sided brakes are mounted on sliding bushings to save space on the installation. Our spring-applied, hydraulically-released, caliper brakes are typically mounted to a turbine's main rotor shaft, between the gearbox and the generator, and used primarily as safety brakes during emergency stops under high wind conditions. All units are engineered to handle the large output torque reduction generated by the very high ratios found in wind turbine gearboxes.

    Rotor Locks

    Rotor locks are used in the wind turbine industry and are typically mounted to the turbine´s main rotor shaft, between gearbox and generator. A rotor brake is primarily intended for use as safety brake during emergency stops under high wind conditions. The rotor lock is activated by running the lock bolt into the lock disc using hydraulic power; a "locked" signal is then transmitted to the control system. Our rotor lock units are engineered to handle the large output torque generated by the high ratios found in wind turbine gearboxes.

    Key benefits of our rotor locks for wind turbines:

    • Control system notifies of turbine failure or breakdown
    • Failure notice monitored by main Service Department
    • Local service engineer dispatched to the site immediately, where decision is taken to put the turbine into Rotor Lock Mode - saving valuable service time
    • Rotor Lock Mode activated by remote control
    • Turbine rotor brought to a full stop by aerodynamic and mechanical brakes

    Access Hatch Linear Actuators

    Our broad range of standard actuators can be custom-configured to meet specific applications including special pin to pin and stroke lengths, special end fittings, mounting brackets, paints, and lead wire lengths. Load capacity up to 12,500 Nm. The rugged B-Track linear actuators are completely sealed and designed for tough, high load applications. They incorporate high strength, high quality components to provide years of trouble-free performance in harsh environments. Models feature a ball nut screw drive with integral load holding brake and overload clutch. Efficient power use, compact package size, excellent corrosion protection, rugged spur gearing, synthetic lubricants and high performance motors provide maximum capability and value.
    • Stroke lengths from 2 inches to 24 inches (50 mm to 610 mm)
    • Travel speeds up to 2.7 in./sec (68.58 mm/sec)
    • AC or DC configuration
    • Optional limit switches: fixed or customer adjustable

    Blade Pitch BrakesBlade Pitch Brake

    Our Blade Pitch Brakes are electrically-released, spring-set brakes that offer a high-performance, cost-effective solution for applications that require both “static” holding power and the ability to withstand high inertia dynamic stops in an emergency situation. Each of the three blades on a typical turbine can be individually positioned (rotated) to achieve maximum efficiency while operating in changing wind conditions. The electromagnetic brake is mounted outboard of an inductive encoder which is mounted to the back of a motor to position the blades to the proper pitch. In normal use, the brake functions as a static brake to hold the blades from rotating in a power-off situation, during routine maintenance or for other reasons. Our blade pitch brakes also offer the advantage of being a one-piece design, fully-enclosed and painted to withstand extreme environmental conditions (salt-spray, condensation, water, etc.).

     Shaft Locking Devicesac-shaft-locking-devices

    Our hydraulic (HLD) and mechanical (MLD) locking devices are custom engineered for a lightweight,high torque connection between the turbine main shaft and gearbox. Units are domestically manufactured to provide years of trouble-free service in wind turbines rated up to 3 MW. The greatest advantage of the HLD (Hydraulic Locking Devices) is the significant time savings during installation. With larger diameters,such as 20.8 in. (530 mm),the HLD can be tensioned within only a few minutes, compared to several hours required for a mechanical locking device. The hydraulic pump required for assembly can be a stationary unit,but the use of a hydraulic hand pump is also possible for tensioning at difficult-to-reach places such as the turret of a wind turbine. The MLD (Mechanical Locking Device) units eliminate the need for keyways or splines,provide unlimited shaft positioning,and feature zero backlash,reduced shaft stress,and high contact pressure for greater torque. The MLD series has the ability to fit into smaller installations while only requiring standard tools to assemble. All units are pre-assembled,ready to install. Torque range up to 4,425,372 ft.lbs. (6,000 kNm). A wide range of possibilities is available with outer diameters up to 57.1 in (1,450 mm),and shaft diameters up to 29.5 in. (750 mm). Ameridrives is also offering HTS (Hydraulic Tensioner Systems). These products are all custom engineered for the customer. Modular,light weight design allows for versatile application. HTS can reduce the installation time of mechanical locking devices 80-90%.

A rotor brake is primarily intended for use as safety brake during emergency stops under high wind conditions. The rotor lock is activated by running the lock bolt into the lock disc using hydraulic power; a "locked" signal is then transmitted to the control system. Our rotor lock units are engineered to handle the large output torque generated by the high ratios found in wind turbine gearboxes.

    Key benefits of our rotor locks for wind turbines:

    • Control system notifies of turbine failure or breakdown
    • Failure notice monitored by main Service Department
    • Local service engineer dispatched to the site immediately, where decision is taken to put the turbine into Rotor Lock Mode - saving valuable service time
    • Rotor Lock Mode activated by remote control
    • Turbine rotor brought to a full stop by aerodynamic and mechanical brakes

    Access Hatch Linear Actuators

    Our broad range of standard actuators can be custom-configured to meet specific applications including special pin to pin and stroke lengths, special end fittings, mounting brackets, paints, and lead wire lengths. Load capacity up to 12,500 Nm. The rugged B-Track linear actuators are completely sealed and designed for tough, high load applications. They incorporate high strength, high quality components to provide years of trouble-free performance in harsh environments. Models feature a ball nut screw drive with integral load holding brake and overload clutch. Efficient power use, compact package size, excellent corrosion protection, rugged spur gearing, synthetic lubricants and high performance motors provide maximum capability and value.
    • Stroke lengths from 2 inches to 24 inches (50 mm to 610 mm)
    • Travel speeds up to 2.7 in./sec (68.58 mm/sec)
    • AC or DC configuration
    • Optional limit switches: fixed or customer adjustable

    Blade Pitch Brakes

    Our Blade Pitch Brakes are electrically-released, spring-set brakes that offer a high-performance, cost-effective solution for applications that require both “static” holding power and the ability to withstand high inertia dynamic stops in an emergency situation. Each of the three blades on a typical turbine can be individually positioned (rotated) to achieve maximum efficiency while operating in changing wind conditions. The electromagnetic brake is mounted outboard of an inductive encoder which is mounted to the back of a motor to position the blades to the proper pitch. In normal use, the brake functions as a static brake to hold the blades from rotating in a power-off situation, during routine maintenance or for other reasons. Our blade pitch brakes also offer the advantage of being a one-piece design, fully-enclosed and painted to withstand extreme environmental conditions (salt-spray, condensation, water, etc.).

     Shaft Locking Devices

    Our hydraulic (HLD) and mechanical (MLD) locking devices are custom engineered for a lightweight,high torque connection between the turbine main shaft and gearbox. Units are domestically manufactured to provide years of trouble-free service in wind turbines rated up to 3 MW. The greatest advantage of the HLD (Hydraulic Locking Devices) is the significant time savings during installation. With larger diameters,such as 20.8 in. (530 mm),the HLD can be tensioned within only a few minutes, compared to several hours required for a mechanical locking device. The hydraulic pump required for assembly can be a stationary unit,but the use of a hydraulic hand pump is also possible for tensioning at difficult-to-reach places such as the turret of a wind turbine. The MLD (Mechanical Locking Device) units eliminate the need for keyways or splines,provide unlimited shaft positioning,and feature zero backlash,reduced shaft stress,and high contact pressure for greater torque. The MLD series has the ability to fit into smaller installations while only requiring standard tools to assemble. All units are pre-assembled,ready to install. Torque range up to 4,425,372 ft.lbs. (6,000 kNm). A wide range of possibilities is available with outer diameters up to 57.1 in (1,450 mm),and shaft diameters up to 29.5 in. (750 mm). Ameridrives is also offering HTS (Hydraulic Tensioner Systems). These products are all custom engineered for the customer. Modular,light weight design allows for versatile application. HTS can reduce the installation time of mechanical locking devices 80-90%.

    Rotor Brakes

    [caption id="attachment_3988" align="alignright" width="300"]Windmill Rotor Brakes Windmill Rotor Brakes[/caption] Kor-Pak rotor brakes are in operation today on hundreds of wind turbines around the world. All models are fully assembled,provide high levels of reliability,easy electronic monitoring and maintenance,and are available with organic or metallic linings. Friction liners are carefully sized to ensure adequate heat dissipation during an emergency stop, with even pressure distribution across pad surfaces. Models are offered in a range of braking forces from 100N to 1MN to meet the braking torque requirements of the most common turbine sizes. Rotor brake models are available as both standard and floating models. Floating, single-sided brakes are mounted on sliding bushings to save space on the installation. Our spring-applied, hydraulically-released, caliper brakes are typically mounted to a turbine's main rotor shaft, between the gearbox and the generator, and used primarily as safety brakes during emergency stops under high wind conditions. All units are engineered to handle the large output torque reduction generated by the very high ratios found in wind turbine gearboxes.

    • Greater coefficient of friction achieved which yields greater torque
    • Reduced size of the disc
    • Reduced Costs of the Gear Box due to reduced distance between input and output shaft.
    • Self-adjuster for lining wear compensation
    • Series or Shunt Wound Coil (for DC Magnet Brakes)
    • Zero Overhung Load/Balanced Torque means a lesser propensity for the shaft to twist and potentially break.  This means a lesser likelihood of a catastrophic failure from occurring.
    • Sliding Torque Scale (for thruster brake)
    • Options: Lowering Valve, Release Limit Switch, High-Temperature Oil
    • Offered as drop-in to AISE Standard Dimensions
    • Discs, Drums, Couplings, and accessories available for complete drop-in package
