Yaw Brakes | Twiflex

A full array of caliper solutions is available from Twiflex, Ltd. to meet the yaw braking force requirements of any size wind turbine. All brake models are robust, hydraulically activated, and direct applied. Models T20 and T40 with up to 40kN braking force, featuring two-bolt side mounting, are designed for light to medium-duty applications. Model VCH with 60kN, featuring four-bolt center mounting, is ideal for use in medium sized turbines. The Model VKH with 118kN, base mounted caliper is designed for larger, heavy-duty turbine applications.

All models of yaw brakes function as static holding brakes when the nacelle is positioned into the wind. Typically, Twiflex caliper brakes may act directly on the yaw ring or Matrix plate-type brakes are mounted on the non-driving end of the yaw motors.
