The key to supplying and supporting large operationally critical power transmission equipment on a global basis is a combination of experience, planning and having the right people available on-site virtually anywhere in the world, says Neil Wright, MD of Wichita Clutch.
Wichita Clutch, Wichita Falls, Texas, has recently added the air cooled, spring-set, air released AirMaKKs SSB high torque brakes to its AquaMaKKs family of clutches and brakes. The AirMaKKs SSB is designed to provide low speed braking assistance in applications including conveyors, cranes and drawworks where they serve as a main brake that provides both parking and E-stop braking functions.
Kopper Kool water-cooled, hydraulically-actuated clutches were supplied by Wichita Clutch for use on a large load winch drive system aboard an anchor handling tug supply (AHTS) vessel.
Wichita Clutch has supplied AquaMaKKs low-inertia, spring-set brakes (LI-SSB) for use on diving support vessel (DSV) mooring winches. The DSV is used for inspection, maintenance and repair of offshore oil and gas pipelines and platforms.
