Easy Installation. Silent. Long Lasting Performance. If that is what you are looking for in a brake for your process line, then MAGPOWR B Series Shaft Mounted Magnetic Particle Brake is for you. It's easy to install, made of rugged cast iron for long life and has minimal moving parts so you can mount the brake, and it starts performing immediately. The magnetic particle brake is a very simple, durable device. The magnetic particles are located inside the brake between the O.D. of the rotor and the I.D. of the drive cylinder. With no current in the coil of this device, the particles are free to lie loosely between the rotor and the drive cylinder. When current is applied to the coil, it sets up a magnetic field in the stator. The magnetic particles line up with the magnetic field and couple the rotor to the drive cylinder. As the current is increased, the magnetic field increases and the coupling increases. This coupling, or torque capacity, is proportional to the amount of current in the coil.
The magnetic particle brake is unique in that it acts like a torque valve, allowing any amount of torque to be passed to the load. Long life, smooth starts, and silent operation make it perfect for cycling and overload applications. Offered in a variety of mounting styles in both clutch and brake configuration, you can be assured of finding the proper unit for your machine.
