MagnaShear Hazardous-Duty Brakes

March 17, 2016

MagnaShear hazardous duty brakes from Force Control Industries, which employ oil shear technology to provide longer service life with virtually no maintenance or adjustment, now meet Class I and Class II Div 2 specifications (Div 1 in process with approval forthcoming).  With spring set torque ratings from 3 to 900 foot-pounds available, MagnaShear motor brakes can be sized to the correct torque independent of the motor frame size or horsepower.  They also feature “quick mount” features for quick and easy mounting to drive motors in NEMA frame sizes 56 to 405.  

MagnaShear motor brakes are ideal for applications where the motor is reversed each cycle such as:

  • cranes
  • winches
  • hoists
  • ship and railcar loader/unloader conveyors
  • tippers
  • sweep samplers
  • more
