2.1 Electrohydraulic drum brakes

Electrohydraulic drum brakes

Electrohydraulic drum brake types NAT, NDT y NFT are spring applied failsafe brakes that act on a drum. The brake is released by means of an electrohydraulic device called TURBEL. The TURBEL is a three-phase AC electrohydraulic thrustor. The TURBEL can be placed both vertically (conventional models) as well as horizontally (NDT-A models).

The braking torque can be adjusted and the brake offers an optional torque scale. NDT-V models incorporate the torque scale as a standard.
Antec offers two possible locations for the torque scale: vertical (traditional) position, for the NDT-V models, and the exclusive ECP system of Antec, which allows the torque scale to be placed horizontally, which offers simplicity and money save.

All the brakes offer stainless steel shafts, the brake joints have self-lubricating bushes and the brake shoes carry asbestos free linings.
The brakes are designed according to the following norms:

  • NAT: AISE Nº11
  • NDT/NDT-V: DIN 15.435
  • NFT: S-472A

Antec electrohydraulic drum brakes can be equipped with any of the following options:

  • Automatic lining wear adjustment (RA)
  • Open brake switch indicator (CSA)
  • Lining wear detector (DD)
  • Hand release lever (DM)
  • Progressive braking through a Descent valve in the thrustor (VD)
  • Reduced torque (PR)
  • Torque scale (ECP). Standard in NDT-V series
  • Special Painting (PE)
  • Pneumatic or hydraulic release (ANH)
  • ATEX Certificate (ATEX)
