Braking and Jacking Systems

The scope consists of all the components required to achieve the braking or elevation of the hydro generator’s rotor in vertical machines. Our focus on Engineering allows us to provide a full package solution including calculations, drawings, test results & certificates, Quality documentation, etc for each project.

We are able to adapt to the specific requirements of each machine. Very specially for Generator Refurbishments where dimensions must be often customized

Main characteristics of Jacks:

  • Standard diametres (mm): 80, 120, 150, 160, 200, 250, 300. Others under request.
  • Single acting spring returned.
  • Detectors integrated for shoe wear, braking detection or other purposes.
  • Automatically or manually commanded by the Brake Control Unit (panel or cabinet), allowing local or remote command.
  • Dust collecting Complete System (Optional)
