Thrusters are commonly used on thruster brakes, a type of industrial brake. Thruster brakes are fail-safe, meaning they are spring applied and use a thruster to release the brake. Thrusters work as follows: when supplied power, the thruster piston rod extends and the brake is released. If the thruster is turned off or power is lost, the piston rod retracts and the spring engages the brake.
Because of their unmatched safety and reliability, we use thruster disc and drum brakes in our industrial braking systems. Elhy thrusters are particularly well suited for use in applications with high duty cycle requirements.
