Used in coke/coal plants, railcar movers (sometimes referred to as “pusher cars”) move slowly, are electrically powered, and carry heavy equipment – and thus need reliable industrial fail-safe braking solutions in the event of a power loss or other event.
Hindon provides a wide range of disc and drum industrial braking options for railcar mover applications, including fail-safe brakes, electromagnetic brakes, and spring-applied brakes. The brake is mounted on the input shaft of the gearbox and features automatic wear compensation.
All Hindon braking systems perform well in heavy-duty operations and provide reliable holding and e-stop operation in the event of a power loss or fault in the variable frequency drive or PLC in the drive system.
