wet brakes aka oil cooling brakes

WHAT ARE WET BRAKES AND ARE THEY MORE EFFECTIVE

From a physics perspective, brakes on automobiles are built to convert kinetic energy (your moving vehicle) into heat energy (friction). In a car for example, the car then stops because of the energy conversion.

When it comes to heavy machinery, power is needed to effectively keep it from moving. You cannot just use any product because there are times when heavy vehicles will meet extreme weather and conditions.

Therefore, you need to research on what kind of tool to use to get that extra punch in the vehicle’s stopping power.

Boom Crane Parts, Anatomy and Origin

Nov 27, 12 • Cranes, Industrial Mechanical PartsComments Off on Boom Crane Parts, Anatomy and Origin

Back in August of 2009 we released a post digging into the science of cranes, their components and how everything works together. We decided it was time for an update, but you can still see the former boom crane post here: http://www.klclutch.com/cranes/science-behind-boom-cranes/

The Parts of A Crane

A quick look at crane terminology.

  • Crane Parts and Anatomy - K&L Clutch and TransmissionThe Boom: The boom of a crane is the long, telescopic, or fixed, arm that is used to move objects.
  • The Counterweights: The counterweights are stabilizers placed near the cab’s exterior that prevent the crane from becoming unbalanced when lifting heavy loads.
  • The Jib: The jib is the lattice-like structure that gives the boom the freedom to extend.
  • The Rotex Gear: The Rotex gear affords the crane the ability to rotate its apparatus, thereby better enabling it to do its job from awkward standpoints. Hook rollers are also used in some crane applications.
