These units use the center hub of the wheel rim as one of the friction surfaces eliminating the need for a bolt-on-friction rotor. Made from high-strength ductile iron, these brakes use asbestos-free friction material for reliable stopping and long life. Secondary wiper seals protect the brake piston seals, and a deflector plate keeps out foreign objects. The piston seals minimize fluid displacement and come in a variety of materials. All brake components are corrosion protected. LWB brakes act as a spindle and bearing support for the load wheel and minimize temperature rises by using the wheel to absorb heat. The brakes adapt to alternative spindle-type brake applications such as reach-type lift trucks, scissor lifts, and aerial work platforms.
