Force Control Industries, Inc. designs and manufacturers clutches and brakes for various marine applications including cranes, small winches, large winches, anchor winches, and drawworks.

The Positorq, Posistop and MagnaShear brakes are mechanical friction units featuring “Oil Shear Technology”. This offers many advantages. The units are totally sealed eliminating contamination of moisture or other contaminants.

Multiple discs provide low inertia-high torque in a compact package. Oil shear Technology nearly eliminates the wear of frictions discs and plates, bearings, and splines for years of trouble free, no adjustment, service life. Special marine grade coatings can be furnished for protection in fresh or saltwater applications.

MagnaShear spring set, electric release, motor brakes are perfect for all sorts of deck winches.

Protected from the environment, years of no maintenance – no adjustment ever, and torque up to 1250 Lb. Ft. provide the most cost effective braking system available for the marine industry.

The new hazardous duty MagnaShear motor brakes are now available for those difficult areas where there may be an explosive environment.

Positorq Drawworks Auxillary Brake

TB-Series Positorq Oil Shear Drawworks Brakes  Replace your Elmagco Brakes with the new Force Control TB-Series Positorq Oil Shear Drawworks brakes and trip faster, drill smoother, and make your operators happy.  The TB-Series Positorq brakes will operate consistently from 0 RPM to full speed. Torque is linear to actuation pressure (not speed sensitive) making the operation simple, and consistent. Oil shear technology means no adjustment - ever, and wear is minimal meaning years of service between repairs or rebuilds.  -Never Needs Adjustment - Ever.  -Long lasting oil shear technology.  -Consistent smooth operation from 0 to full speed.  -Full torque available - 0 RPM to maximum speed.  -Smooth operation down to 0 RPM (no stick slip or chatter).  -Torque linear to actuation pressure - speed independent.  -Emergency stop system brings controlled stop in case of power failure.  -Simple control - manual over full torque range - auto set with manual over ride.  -Control works with auto driller systems that can provide an output.  -Torque Range - continuous slip torque 250 Lb. Ft. to 115,000 Lb. Ft.  -Maximum stopping/holding torque 177,000 Lb. Ft.  -Inertia: WK2 - 1,698 Lb.Ft.2  -Size TB-87 (Equivalent to Baylor/Elmagco 7838.)  -Weight - 10,700 Lbs. The TB-Series Positorq Brakes from Force Control Industries is the only brake you will need for tripping, drilling, setting BOP's or any other drawworks operation. It has the torque to handle tripping (dropping and stopping in position) without additional brake support. During the drilling process the TB-Series Positorq Brakes can maintain accurate load on the bit smoothly and accurately. In addition its quick response to the operator controls, or an Autodriller, provides maximum drilling speed while reducing bit bounce and wear. Operators will love it. The smooth operation also reduces shock on the system including cables, tower, sheaves, and drilling platform. The accumulator package provides emergency braking in case of a power failure, or other catastrophe. The system is designed to apply full torque at a controlled rate reducing the chance of a sudden stop exceeding the system integrity. Our hydraulic actuation control package is designed to be user friendly, and will operate flawlessly with an Autodriller. Visit us at Booth 751 for additional information.
