    Hazardous environment air brakes

    Posistop X-Class air brakes are ideal for use in hazardous, combustible and explosive environments. Because the X-Class brake is actuated without use of a sacrificial wear surface (as in dry-braking systems), they typically last 5-10 times longer than dry-friction brakes. No adjustments are required, and maintenance is virtually eliminated. All brakes are shipped fully assembled and tested.
