Thruster Brakes by Mondel

Mondel Hy-Thrust Actuators combine all the basic elements of a hydraulic system into one integral unit, the function of these actuators is to convert electrical energy, hydraulically, into a mechanical force, producing a straight line thrust throughout the piston stroke.

These thruster brake actuators are electro-hydraulic devices which combine all the basic elements of a hydraulic system into one integral unit, consisting of: an electric motor driving a hydraulic pump, piping, working cylinder and piston.

There are three families of Mondel Thruster Brakes:

  • AC Industrial Type "Ed"
  • AC Explosionproof Type "EdF"
