BSFK 500 Series Brake Caliper

The BSFK 500 safety, spring-applied, hydraulically-released brake family includes the following single or dual piston models to meet specific customer performance and footprint requirements:

  • BSFK 500 DS
  • BSFK 500 MS

The brakes are engaged when the oil pressure to the brake disappears. These safety brakes can be used for a range of different purposes, such as parking and emergency stopping in case of power failure. The brake spring packs are sized to suit the individual specific braking requirements of the application. A range of indicators are available as accessories and can be fitted to the brake to detect and monitor the status of the brake functions, such as: brake pad wear, brake on/off status and brake lining temperature.

Dual-spring versions consist of two caliper halves designed for mounting on a bracket. These brakes have two sets of spring packs making the intervals between required brake adjustments longer compared to a mono-spring type brake.

Mono-spring brake versions consist of three parts: a caliper half-fitted with a spring pack(s) and a passive caliper mounted on a base plate suitable for side mounting. The brake caliper assembly is free floating on guide shafts allowing for axial disc movement.
