Carlisle Industrial Brake & Friction’s Model RT 7000 is a mechanically actuated, sliding caliper brake designed for parking, secondary and industrial applications. The RT 7000 is made from high-strength ductile iron and features a stay-clean sealed design ideal for harsh environments, according to the company. The brake offers quick-change non-asbestos organic or sintered metallic linings and provides superior fade characteristics when compared to drum brakes, especially in emergency situations, Carlisle says.

The brake, designed to replace in-line drum brakes that experienced problems due to dirt and debris accumulation, has been engineered to fulfill the challenging park and emergency stopping requirements of military, construction, underground mining, agricultural and on/off highway vehicles that are subjected to severe environments. The RT 7000 is a lever-actuated brake that uses a ball ramp assembly designed to advance the brake pads toward the disc. The brake has a disc thickness range of 0.38 to 0.44 inches and a disc diameter range of 10 to 25 inches.
