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.
