Products / AHA Industrial Hydraulic Brakes and Clutches

Industrial multiple disc air and hydraulic brakes and clutches (AHA) feature a number of advantages:

  • Highest torque in the smallest space
  • Wet or dry application
  • Automatic wear compensation
  • Long life floating discs for low heat and extremely low neutral drag
  • Requires no special tools for installation or repair
  • Torque range 5 lb. ft.- 2,500 lb. ft.

The MAXITORQ® multiple disc air or hydraulic spring set clutches and brakes deliver more than ten times the torque of single disc air or industrial hydraulic brakes of the same package size. The floating disc principle incorporates separator springs between brake discs and assures fast disengagement with minimum drag and heat when in neutral. Hardened steel inner friction discs are splined to the body for proper lug-load distribution and operate against bronze-faced steel outer discs, thus providing long wear and smooth operation.

These industrial hydraulic brakes can be operated either dry or in oil. For wet applications, the clutch should be ordered without bearing shields. For dry applications, the clutch is furnished with permanently lubricated ball bearings.

Drive-Line is able to supply modified standard products, offer custom products previously designed by the MAXITORQ engineering staff, or help you get custom designed industrial hydraulic brakes to meet your specific needs. Please contact us for more details.
