Carlisle offers disc brake for fork lifts

Carlisle Industrial Brake & Friction introduced a new compact, hydraulic actuated, full circle disc brake designed for fork lifts and related equipment.

Model LWB utilizes the center hub of the wheel rim as one of the friction surfaces to eliminate the need for a bolt on friction rotor. This brake is constructed from high-strength ductile iron and uses Carlisle asbestos-free friction material for reliable stopping and a long service life, the company said.

Secondary wiper seals protect the LWB brake piston seals and a deflector plate prevents foreign objects from becoming entangled in the piston, the company said. The piston seals are designed to minimize fluid displacement and are available with a variety of seal materials. All LWB brake components come with corrosion protection.

LWB brakes act as a spindle and bearing support for the load wheel and minimize brake temperature rises by using the thermal mass of the wheel to absorb heat. The brake is adapted to alternative spindle-type brake applications, such as reach type lift trucks, scissor lifts and aerial work platforms.
