Carlisle Industrial Brake and Friction introduces a new compact, hydraulic actuated, full circle disc brake designed for fork lifts and related equipment.

Model LWB utilizes the centre hub of the wheel rim as one of the friction surfaces to eliminate the need for a bolt on friction rotor. This easy-to-install brake is constructed from high strength ductile iron and uses Carlisle asbestos-free friction material for reliable stopping and a long service life.

Secondary wiper seals protect the LWB brake piston seals and a deflector plate prevents foreign objects from becoming entangled in the piston.

The piston seals are designed to minimize fluid displacement and are available with a variety of seal materials.

All LWB brake components come with corrosion protection. The brake is easily adapted to alternative spindle-type brake applications such as reach type lift trucks, scissor lifts and aerial work platforms.
