The Pneumatic Brake Assembly is mounted within the conveyor frame under the conveyor rollers. When actuated the brake presses against the rollers and will not allow the rollers to turn. The brake can be used in a wide variety of applications. Work in process, product accumulation, and product indexing can all be preformed with a brake or a series of brakes in tandem. The brakes are available in two models. The PBA single air cylinder actuates a brake pad that is available in lengths of 24” to 36”. The PBA double air cylinder actuates a brake pad that is available in lengths of 48” to 60”. The brakes are constructed of 7 gauge formed steel with a 5/16” thick high friction brake pad. Each brake comes with a single 110 or 24 volt solenoid valve. Optional double solenoids and electrical controls are available.
