Built to Last, Guaranteed to Perform

For Shipboard, Portside, Salt Water and Fresh Water Applications

Marine Duty

Force Control’s clutch brakes and brakes can all be modified for marine duty applications. This means they can be used for salt water applications for deck winches, cranes, anchor winches and brake applications on offshore oil rigs. Other applications include fresh water deck and barge winches.

Another place would be port side,  especially loading and unloading facilities for coal, wood, minerals, grain, and others.

High grade castings, marine duty coatings, stainless steel fasteners and accessories make these brakes the ideal solution for onshore and offshore marine applications. Their varied ship-board and in-port applications include use on anchor winches, mooring winches, drawworks, capstans, conveyors, hoists, loaders and un-loaders, and more.

Marine Duty products are modified to resist the environmental impact of constant moisture from fresh or salt water. The heavy cast housings will never rust through, but for additional protection, Steel-It epoxy coating is applied. In addition, stainless steel fasteners and shaft collars, nickel plated shafts and non-corrosive breathers and sight gauges are used. Bio-degradable fluid is also used for marine applications so any spill becomes a non-issue.

Eliminating the affects of the hostile marine environment, eliminating regular maintenance and adjustment, and extending the service life over 5 to 10 times provides the Force Control clutches and brake a tremendous cost savings as well as reduced safety concerns.
