Flo-Guide® Speed Retarder Pallet Roller Brakes operate similar to automotive style shoe-type brakes. Centrifugal force generated by the outer brake hub causes internal gearing to force the brake pads against the inner surface of the brake hub. Faster rotation only increases the braking action. Brakes are easily installed for direct or indirect braking action.
The Body Hub, Face Plate, Gear Hubs and Spring Plates are constructed of 30% glass reinforced poly-carbonate resin (XENOY®). Brake Pads and Outer Tire “overmold” are constructed of TEXIN, chosen for its strength, durability and chemical bond with XENOY®. Special wear resistant coated axles and stainless steel springs are used for increased life expectancy, especially in adverse environments, such as, wash down and freezer up to 40° F. Each assembly is permanently lubricated for long life.If you need a large quantity of this product, call us at 1-800-338-1382 for additional bulk discounts!
