Twiflex MS Brake Calipers and Thrusters

The Twiflex MS series of disc brake calipers is suitable for use with a disc thickness of 12.7mm. Minimum disc diameter is 250mm.

Normally one or two calipers are used per disc, mounted horizontally (i.e. at the 3 o’clock or 9 o’clock position) to prevent rubbing of one brake pad due to self-weight of the thruster. A range of brake discs is available from Howdon (see Disc and Hub Assemblies).

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. Howdon disc brakes must be used with Twiflex asbestos free brake pads.

Effective disc radius = actual radius (m) – 0.03m.
