Propulsion brakes

Propulsion brakes

Dellner Brakes is a world-leading provider of brakes and related power transmission products such as propulsion 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. 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 propulsion brakes in icebreakers, trawlers, military vessels and luxury yachts.

Using propulsion 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. As another example, we can mention the LM series, our locking devices, that provides a compact, cost effective solution for holding brake shafts safely and securely in place. They work by inserting a tapered pin into a slot on the brake disc or shaft flange, and can be operated by a manual lever, a hydraulic cylinder or an electric drive. Do not hesitate to contact us if you want to know more about these or other products.
