Fisher Barton, a metallurgical science innovation company, has released its multi-disc tension brake system at the 2021 Utility Expo in Louisville, Kentucky. Designed specifically for utility construction applications, the next-generation brake system is engineered to provide smooth, consistent braking with higher torque and cooler operating temperatures.
The three-point design provides consistent braking tension-reducing pulses and surges on the line. The aluminum-bronze composite rotor radiates heat away from the braking surface better than solid bronze rotors improving thermal conductivity, creating longer pad life, and decreased maintenance downtime. The Fisher Barton multi-disc tension brake system easily mounts to trailer systems and reel stands.
