Crane brakes

46 Magna 150MagnaShear motor brake employs oil shear technology to extend service life in demanding crane applications, especially those with frequent start/stop cycles. Oil shear technology transmits torque between lubricated surfaces, thereby eliminating wear on friction surfaces. A patented fluid recirculation system dissipates heat, eliminating a build-up condition identified as the most common problem in dry braking systems. Elimination of the wear significantly increases service life and virtually eliminates adjustment while elongating maintenance intervals.
