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.
A pneumatic brake can be used in a wide variety of applications. Work in process, product accumulation, and product indexing can all be pre-formed 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.
