Several hydraulic-brake products from Carlisle Brake & Friction have been approved by Germanischer Lloyd (GL) Industrial Services. The brake models, WBA1-90-SC, WBA4-90, and WBA6-120, offer innovative and cost-reducing features such as next-generation friction and hydraulic systems. As part of the accreditation process, the GL representative ensures that the installation, operation and maintenance manuals are observed before and during a wind turbine’s operation. The representative then confirms that the requirements specified on the submitted documentation for the hydraulic brakes are being fulfilled. Certification ensures that the products are safe, effective, and will meet performance requirements in their specific MW wind-turbine market.
