EDDIE CURRENT BRAKES EFFICIENCY TEST

INTERSEL has been servicing ELMAGCO Eddie Current Brakes for over 2 decades in the Middle East as the Authorized service center for ELMAGCO Brakes.

Eddie current brakes help slow down moving objects.  Unlike friction brakes, Eddie current brakes work on the principle of Electrical Eddie Currents.

Eddie currents are generated in moving objects when the moving object passes over a magnet in very close proximity.  Generation of a repulsive magnetic force is seen induced in the metallic object passing over the magnet.  This field generated in the moving object is repulsive hence creating a ‘slow’ down process opposing the magnet’s force flux.  Kinetic energy lost in slowing down the object is gained in turn by the Eddie currents as heat.

Some advantages:

  • Low maintenance
  • Resettable
  • Activated by a simple electrical signal
  • No mechanical friction
  • Wear and sound free
  • No pollution or smell

Eddie current brakes are used on many oil and gas installations.  For any Eddie Current related requirements please contact us immediately.
