The Twiflex MU series of calipers for industrial disc brakes is the smallest in the Twiflex range and is primarily intended for light stopping and holding duties. Its design permits left and right-handed assembly.
The caliper is suitable for use with a disc thickness of 8 mm. However, with a revised thruster mounting arrangement, it may be used with discs 12.7 mm thick. Minimum disc diameter is 150 mm. A range of industrial disc brakes is available from Twiflex (see Disc and Hub Assemblies).
Please note that the fixing bolt is to be supplied by the customer.
For pneumatic operation use dry, filtered and non-lubricated compressed air. Pneumatic brakes require a control valve, operated either manually or by pneumatic or electrical signal.
The ratings shown on the graphs are based on fully bedded-in and conditioned brake pads with a nominal friction coefficient μ = 0.4. Twiflex industrial disc brakes must be used with Twiflex asbestos free brake pads.
Effective disc radius = actual radius (m) – 0.02m.
