Wichita Clutch, based in Wichita Falls, Texas, has recently added the air cooled, spring-set, air released AirMaKKs SSB high torque brakes to its AquaMaKKs family of clutches and brakes.

The AirMaKKs SSB is designed to provide low speed braking assistance in applications including conveyors, cranes and drawworks where they serve as a main 
brake that provides both parking and E-stop braking functions.

AirMaKKs SSB models utilize the basic, easy-to-maintain, pin-style, modular design of AquaMaKKs including the brake housing with torque plates installed instead of water jackets. Models are available in the 19, 25, 36 and 48 inch AquaMaKKs sizes.

Units feature three-part epoxy marine-grade paint and corrosion-resistant coatings for added protection on offshore rig applications. AirMaKKs brakes, featuring stainless steel torque plates, are also available for marine deck applications where sea spray and direct seawater splash are prevalent.
