VKHD Series Disc Brake Caliper | Twiflex Limited

The Twiflex VKHD disc brake caliper is comprised of two halves, or hydraulic modules, and is suitable for use with a minimum disc thickness of 20mm. The modules are mounted each side of a central mounting plate 12mm thicker than the brake disc. Minimum disc diameter is 1000mm.

Normally one or two calipers are used per disc, but the number may be increased depending on disc size. The brakes may be positioned at any angle around the periphery of the disc, but should ideally be mounted horizontally (i.e. at the 3 o’clock or 9 o’clock position). A range of brake discs is available from Twiflex (see Disc and Hub Assemblies).

The ratings shown on the graph are based on fully bedded in and conditioned brake pads with a nominal friction coefficient μ = 0.4. Twiflex disc brakes must be used with Twiflex asbestos free brake pads.

Effective disc radius = actual radius (m) – 0.095m.
