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 / wind energy brakes needs. All brake models are robust, hydraulically activated, and direct Yaw Brakesapplied. 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.
