Select from 18-295 Kgs of Thrust:

A Three phase electric motor’s shaft is connected to an impeller within a hydraulic cylinder filled with transformer oil. Oil seals are used to prevent the transformer oil from leaking where the motor shaft enters the hydraulic cylinder.When electric power is applied to the motor, the impeller spins at the rpm of the motor and creates a hydraulic pressure on the internal walls of the cylinder.This pressure causes the tie rods to thrust upwards opposing the external spring and causing the brake arms to move and release the shaft.

Steel Compression Spring

This steel spring is pre compressed during the installation of the thruster brake to constantly apply a force on the motor shaft through the brake shoe pads.The carefully chosen material ,pitch,diameter & number of active coils give the constant braking force required for a particular motor on the crane or elevator. When 3 phase electric power is applied to the thruster , crank lever moves upwards and releases the brake shoes which frees the motor drum. When electric power is removed from the thruster,crank lever comes down due to loss of thrust & with the force of the loaded spring and brake shoe pads now apply pressure to the rotating shaft.

Heavy Duty Brake Shoes

An asbestos brake pads are used on the steel brake shoes to absorb the heat generated due to the friction of the shaft with the linings.The asbestos brake linings are riveted to the brake shoes and get worn off over time.

Understanding the Thruster Brake: Principles, Construction, and Operation

Thruster brakes are integral components in the world of machinery, playing a pivotal role in controlling the speed and halting the movement of equipment with precision. This article delves into the working principle, construction, and operation of thruster brakes, providing a comprehensive understanding of this crucial device.

Working Principle

A thruster brake operates on a simple yet effective mechanism. When the brake is not energized, the brake shoes, under the influence of a pre-stressed compression spring, press against a brake drum attached to the drive motor shaft1. This application of braking force prevents the drum from rotating, effectively applying the brake1.

However, when the thruster motor is energized, it generates a thrust that lifts the crank lever1. This movement causes the arms to move, pulling the brake shoes away from the brake drum1. As a result, the braking force is released, allowing the drum to rotate1. The spring is compressed during this process, storing energy for the next braking cycle1.

Construction

A thruster brake is composed of several key components, each contributing to its efficient operation. The brake shoes, lined with friction pads, are hinged on the main arm and sidearm of the brake1. These arms are connected at the top by a tie rod, which is hinged in the main arm and locked to the swivel block in the sidearm1.

A crank lever, hinged on the main arm, is connected to the top clevis of the thruster1. A brake spring, fixed on the main arm, is pre-loaded by a lock nut on the lever1. The pre-tension in this spring determines the braking torque1. The thruster is fitted on the base by a hinge pin1.

Operation

The operation of a thruster brake is a seamless process. When the thruster is not energized, the brake shoes press on the brake drum, preventing it from rotating1. However, when the thruster motor is energized, the thrust lifts the crank lever, moving the arms and pulling the brake shoes away from the brake drum1. This action releases the braking force, allowing the drum to rotate1.

Conclusion

Thruster brakes are a testament to the marvels of engineering, combining simple principles with complex design to control the speed and movement of machinery. Understanding their working principle, construction, and operation can provide valuable insights into their role in various industrial applications.
