Shrimp processing and peeling
A leading manufacturer of shrimp processing equipment experienced repeated, premature brake failure on the machinery’s shrimp peeling process. The heavy duty performance requirements combined with constant exposure to a corrosive high moisture environment was causing the braking system to fail in two weeks time.
Tolomatic designed a P20 style caliper brake from 316 stainless steel that resisted corrosion and provided the required braking torque capable of performing under the heavy duty cycle requirements of the application.
- No brake failures
- Eliminated down time
- Eliminated replacement parts
