Description

DELIVERING SAVINGS WITH EACH LANDING
Wheels and carbon brakes from Collins Aerospace include the latest in electric, prognostic and advanced materials technology. Offering operators improvements in performance and reliability, as well as a reduction in maintenance costs, our systems are in use on over 200 commercial, civil and military aircraft applications worldwide.

DURACARB® CARBON DISK TECHNOLOGY
Our proprietary DURACARB® heat sink material delivers a significant advantage over steel heat sinks and competing carbon materials. With the weight and durability benefits of DURACARB® carbon disks, operators can expect a greatly lowered cost of operation related to their landing systems.

LOWER WEIGHT
For example, on Boeing 737NG, savings up to 700 lbs (318 kg)
per airplane compared to steel brakes

LONGER LIFE
Significantly longer (2-3x) brake life compared to steel brakes, and superior life compared to competing carbon materials

FASTER COOLING
Higher energy absorption capability and faster cooling rates allow for shorter turnaround times

LOWER COSTS
Reduced maintenance and operating costs due to brake life improvement and weight reduction

LOCK RING WHEEL AND CARBON BRAKE FOR LOCKHEED MARTIN C-130
A prime example of the benefits our wheel and brake technologies bring to operators is the Lockheed Martin C-130. Our wheel and brake retrofit for the C-130 includes DURACARB® carbon disk technology, providing extended wear life, low vibration, and improved strength for years of reduced maintenance operation.
