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-
For pneumatic operation use dry, filtered and non-
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.
