A diverse range of oil immersed multi-disc wet brakes designed for use in conveyor systems has been developed by NEPEAN Conveyors. These units are spring applied-hydraulic release fail-to-safe type, and are designed specifically for applications where open discs are not desirable, such as in underground coal mines where surface temperatures are limited to 150°C. All brakes are designed to provide high thermal mass to prevent damage during power loss situations, and range from 1000N.m to 160,000N.m dynamic torque capacity per brake. A wide range of mounting options available to suit high speed or low speed shaft dynamic conveyor braking, belt reelers or take-up winches. Various options are available for control and cooling systems, including self diagnosis and redundancy for safety critical applications such as on large capacity decline and regenerative conveyors. Detailed risk assessments and SIL assessments (in conjunction with NEPEAN Power) form part of the engineered braking solution, wether it is a primary or emergency (back up) brake system.
