KPHWB Series Hydraulic Wheel Brake Main Features:

Wheel Brake Applications:

Wheel brakes are typically used on passive wheels and “clamp” to the wheel.  They effectively prevent the wheel from rolling when exposed to environmental conditions such as strong wind velocities.  Consequently, wheel brakes are widely used for storm braking, which is a highly effective wind-proof solution.  If the brake is applied on high speed shaft of drive wheel, it will be more effective and economical.
