Drawworks braking "alternative"

Positorq Load Control Brakes have been brought out as an "all in one alternative for drawworks braking."

The oil shear hydroviscous brake is designed for dynamic slip as well as static stopping and holding. As an "all in one" dual-purpose brake, it controls stop rate, absorbs energy from stopping, plus enables stop-and-hold in position during tripping to make the next pipe connection. Positorq can smoothly slip at very low 0-rpm speed to control weight on the bit - without clatter, stick slip, or cogging during drilling.

The new load control brakes are cited as "ideal replacements for water brakes or eddy current auxiliary brakes commonly used as well as the mechanical band or caliper brake on the winch drum."

The systems are designed for land-based and offshore rigs or other drawworks locations.
