MAD MAX

Shaft line Brake for large steam turbines
Did you know the unavailibility cost of our largest turbines are around ~1M€/day?
Large steam turbines take a long time to stop from turning gear speed. This waiting time is a direct loss of availiblity. The use of Mad Max brake system enables to reduce the braking time from 20h down to 30 minutes.
