Standard centrifugal brakes are used to limit speed – they cannot bring a system to standstill. the basic principle is to keep a balance between the load of the driving side and the braking torque. during the operation there is a constant friction which generates heat.🔥🔥🔥⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
centrifugal brakes convert mechanical energy into heat, which is generated between the linings and the brake drum, and mostly heats up the latter.
the temperature distribution illustrated above on a brake drum clearly shows the higher heating of the drum in the region over the flyweights.
the amount of generated heat depends on various factors: 🔹 transmitted braking torque.
🔸 brake speed.
🔹 duration of the braking operationt.
🔸 size of the friction surface.
🔹 the mass of the brake drum that has to be heated.
the main application for centrifugal brakes is limiting the speed.🏗 .
