Airflex Floating Housing Brake Reduces Downtime & Maintenance Costs for Dragline Equipment


Eaton Airflex has introduced a revolutionary new design in disc brake technology called the Floating Housing Brake
(FHB). The spring-applied (power off), air-cooled disc brake is suited for applications in surface mining, oilfield, winch applications, and other heavy-duty industrial machinery designs.
The FHB is an air-cooled spring-applied brake with exceptional friction life and rapid friction replacement capability. It is supplied with long wearing, organic friction material and a rugged solid cast, rotating disc that provides lower inertia than typical caliper brakes.  


  • Rated for over 430,000 lb-in of torque
  •  Patented braking concept uses a floating housing instead of a floating rotor
  • Multiple brake installation designs exist for industry leading motors
  • Fixed hub and rotor design
