AirBrake®

Enhancing the Longevity & Safety of Axial Flow Fans System

Our AirBrake® anti-windmilling device prevents fans from rotating in the reverse direction, which can damage drive components and provide a hazardous maintenance environment. The AirBrake® will prevent the fan blades from spinning in the reverse direction, avoiding difficult fan start up when the fan is windmilling. This also protects mechanics from potential injury.

Simple to install and virtually maintenance free, the AirBrake® sets the standard for anti-windmilling devices. With more than 280 foot-pounds of holding torque (370 Nm), you can trust our proprietary clutch system to keep your staff and structures safe.
