AquaMaKKs Water Cooled Clutches and Brakes
Air, hydraulic, or spring set actuated and water cooled design, featuring copper wear plates optimized for heavy-duty continuous slip tension applications.

AquaMaKKs™ consist of a series of alternating friction discs and water jackets. Torque is transmitted by applying axial force from the pneumatic, hydraulic, or spring set actuator. Copper wear plates are used for excellent heat dissipation.

AquaMaKKs provides accurate torque control for constant tensioning and are perfectly suited for applications in oil and gas, metal processing and forming, forestry, and marine deck machinery.

Design Benefits
