Water Cooled Brake

The Water Cooled Brake (WCB) is a high-energy absorbing solution used for dynamic tensioning. The design of the internal water passages and copper alloy wear plates allow for excellent heat dissipation. The WCB is well-suited for applications where a heavy-duty continuous slip is needed, such as drawworks, mooring winches, dynamometers, paper converting, uncoilers, and yarders.
