First developed in 1997 and successfully used in the field since, Carlisle Brake & Friction'sSA7000 park brake has spawned a series of SA brake products and myriad competitive imitations. SA brakes are spring applied hydraulically released (SAHR) sliding caliper brakes used in static and secondary off-highway applications.In recent years, Carlisle has developed SA2500 and SA14000 models to broaden the application and industry reach of this classic park brake.
Carlisle's SA series brakes have taken the SAHR concept to a new level of performance, reliability and quality. Used in varied off-highway industries such as mining, agriculture and construction, the SA series brakes contain a return spring device for centering the caliper on a disc, keeping the brake from shifting while preventing brake drag and premature lining wear. A second unique quality of the SA series brakes is the ease of adjustment, resulting in easy lining changes and quick maintenance. Removing the end cap and turning two adjustment bolts is all that's required. A further advantage of the SA series of brakes is its use of magnets, which pull the brake lining back from the disc. This feature eliminates lining chatter and reduces noise considerably.
Twelve years after Carlisle launched the first SA park brake, two more brakes in the SA series are now available. The SA2500, which possesses lower release pressure and less clamp force, and is the smallest and lightest member of the SA series, is ideal for telehandlers. Additionally,a modified version of the SA7000, a low pressure version, has been added to the product family. The latest SA brake is the SA14000, which, with its dual pods, doubles the clamp load while the release pressure remains the same as the SA7000. The SA14000 is a good fit for articulated dump trucks and rigid construction trucks up to 60 tonne.
Carlisle Brake & Friction serves the construction market with complete braking solutions, from the pedal, or hydraulic actuation components, to the friction materials of the brake system, be that a dry or wet braking system. Carlisle has been a supplier of high quality caliper braking products since the inception of caliper style brakes for off-highway vehicles in the 1950s. Since then, as vehicles have grown in size, Carlisle has innovated with customers to supply calipers, including service and park brakes for vehicles up 400 tonnes.
