Tension Brakes

The 5400 series tension brakes are specifically designed for optimal web tension control. Having listened to the frustrations expressed by operations staff at various processing factories, Kobelt designed a new line of face-mounted tension brakes with the single goal of delivering improved brake performance.

Diaphragm actuators provide accurate tension control while our actuator sequence valve effectively triples low end torque sensitivity. In addition, ventilated discs provide enhanced cooling capacity and service intervals are greatly reduced as a result of the large pad area that is incorporated into the design of each model.
