Yaw brakes KTR-STOP® YAW
Yaw brake as a stop brake or operating brake
KTR-STOP® brakes are yaw brakes and protect wind turbines effectively against windsweeping and pulsating loads.
Our yaw brakes develop their strength when aligning and stopping a wind turbine; they can also be used as a stop brake on rotary drives (e.g. swivel head on the excavator) or other installed industrial drives. In the version with pull-back springs they can also be used as an operating brake.
