Eldro electrohydraulic thruster by EMG.

Thrusters can be found on thruster brakes, a type of fail-safe brake that is spring applied and uses an electrohydraulic thruster to release the brake.

The basic design of an Eldro thruster involves a three-phase electric motor and a closed hydraulic system. When supplied power, the electric motor powers a centrifugal pump that generates hydraulic pressure to extend the piston rod and release the brake. 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. Used in a variety of demanding industrial applications such as on steel mill cranes, port cranes, overland conveyors, and in mining applications, EMG thruster brakes are easy to commission and provide high operational reliability, particularly in applications with high duty cycle requirements.

As an official partner of EMG Automation, Hindon provides comprehensive service and support for EMG’s Eldro brand of electrohydraulic thrusters. We stock commonly used Eldro models, provide warrantied repair services, and provide full engineering and technical support.
