WPT water cooled brake

WPT® water cooled brakes (WCBs) are high energy absorbing solutions used as dynamic tensioning and static holding brakes. They are especially suited for severe high-heat braking applications where heavy duty constant slip tensioning is needed. The brakes are air actuated and cooled with a continuous flow of coolant from either a closed or open loop cooling system – and the design of the internal water flow and copper alloy wear plates allows for greater heat dissipation. The air tube design is corrosion resistant and requires no special coatings or treatments and field service is simple and error free. In addition, Retrofit kits are available to convert an existing single or dual piston actuated WCB to air tube actuation with no other modifications required.
