Water-Cooled Third Generation Brake


The Water-Cooled Third Generation Brake is disc type, externally water cooled dynamic brake designed to dissipate extremely high thermal loads. The improved internal design and increased water flow allow improved fluid dynamics with better energy dissipation characteristics. The new brake is available with the Eaton’s Airflex dual piston design as well as the air and water cooled combination style brake that acts as both a dynamic tensioning and static holding brake.


  • Highest HP in class - 1000 HP per disc offers faster tripping time and the potential to downsize the brake in the same application

  • More robust design for demanding applications eliminates copper cracking seen in competitive units

  • Higher coolant flow with 60% lower pressure drop

  • Self supporting brake eliminates costly support brackets

  • Corrosion resistance standard on all WCSB3 and WCBD3 brakes

  • Retrofits to existing WC brake mounting

  • Easier maintenance and wear adjustments, no matchining required for friction or wear plates

  • ABD/CDS agency approval
