    Floating housing brakes

    Eaton’s Floating Housing Brake (FHB) is an air-cooled, spring-applied brake specifically designed to maximize safety and machine uptime. Featuring brake designs with floating housings instead of floating rotors, FHB increases the life of the friction lining and extends the time between friction changes. In addition, FHB eliminates rotor spline wear and periodic brake adjustments to maximize dragline uptime while minimizing maintenance costs.

    DBBS high-torque brakes

    When you need precise balance of rotating components—even at high operating speeds—trust the reliable performance of Eaton Airflex DBBS disc-style brakes. These spring-applied and air- or hydraulically released brakes are engineered to dissipate heat. This, plus high torque capacities, makes DBBS brakes ideal for the most demanding, non-cyclic applications.

    DBB disc-style brakes

    Eaton Airflex DBB disc-style brakes are the ideal solution for cyclic applications where heat dissipation is critical, including bottling equipment, power shovels, shears and power presses. Spring-applied and air or hydraulically released, these brakes feature long-wearing, self-lubricating PolyPak seals to eliminate premature twisting failure.

    DBA disc-style brakes

    Spring-applied and pressure-released, Eaton Airflex DBA disc-style brakes are available with either solid or ventilated discs to match the speed of the application. Featuring large friction areas to absorb and dissipate energy, DBA brakes are ideal for machinery that requires high-cyclic or high-inertia stops such as draglines, power shovels and conveyors.

    DC clutches and brakes

    Get the same torque capacity in a smaller package with Eaton Airflex DC clutches and brakes. Available in single- or multiple-disc designs, these brakes feature long-wearing, self-lubricating PolyPak seals to eliminate premature twisting failure.

    Spring-applied drum brakes

    Perfect for moderate-speed, high-torque cyclic applications, Eaton Airflex spring-applied, air-released drum brakes automatically engage in the event of air pressure or power loss. Add a low releasing volume requirement , and you have a very responsive brake that provides maximum operator and equipment protection.
