Type 'E'

Eaton Airflex Expanding Clutches and Brakes are the go-to solution for braking and tensioning applications, from Construction equipment and Marine winches to Laundry, Paper and Textile machines. These elements—which come in four different series that span a range of features and sizes—use a rugged, tire-like neoprene and cord tube that expands radially, forcing a friction surface against an inner drum to create stopping torque.

When used with Air or Water Cooled drums, they are suited for medium speed cyclic applications (Tensioning) where thermal load needs to be dissipated.

Eaton and Japan Fawick version of the Type E are not interchangeable.

Where Used:

  • Construction Equipment
  • Metalworking
  • Slip Clutches
  • Winches
  • Paper & Converting
  • Tension Brakes

Type 'CS' - 'CSA' - 'CTE'

Eaton Airflex CS / CSA / CTE drum style brakes are spring-applied; air released. It automatically engages in the event of air pressure or power loss. CTE develops greater torque than CS. Its design and construction are ideal for moderate speed, high torque, and cyclic applications.

The brake is bi-directional, developing approximately the same torque in either direction of drum rotation.

CS and CSA has both Eaton and Japan Fawick version.
