Dellner Brakes is a world-leading provider of brakes and related power transmission products such as propeller brakes, and with over 50 years of experience that has given us a strong reputation for technical innovation, we have collected a high degree of expertise that is built into everything we do.
The STL system is an example of a product used in marine propulsion, as it fits around the propeller shaft to enable faster directional changes to improve manoeuvrability.
It also helps lower fuel consumption and reduces load on propulsion systems. It is used as propeller brakes in icebreakers, trawlers, military vessels and luxury yachts.
Using propeller brakes to secure the propeller prevents unnecessary damage on the propulsion system, and it allows for ROVs and divers to safely operate around the propeller blades. Other brakes that are used for propellers are the SKD working brakes, which are spring released disc brakes suitable for marine propulsion.
