Positorq oil shear tension control brakes from Force Control

A full line of Positorq oil shear tension control brakes from Force Control provides simple, precise torque control over the entire speed range, even down to 0 rpm. Operational speeds are precisely controlled without chatter, stick slip or torque variation, making them suitable for use on tension stands in Kraft and other paper mills. Torque is controlled by pneumatic or hydraulic actuation pressure and is independent of speed. Sizes range from 53 lb.-ft. up to 300,000 lb.-ft., with continuous heat absorption capability up to 3,000 thermal horsepower. With noise levels below 50 dB, the brakes are quiet enough for operators to work comfortably in the same area.
