Brake system of a fan

Brake system of a fan

Are there any standard control methods that are used to apply the stopping brake of a fan?

Thanks Liam

RE: Brake system of a fan

Helicopter rotors have parking brakes, but I'm not aware of another fan-like device that does.

I could have missed a meeting, I suppose.

Hi Mike,
Sorry I should have mad my question more clear. I was meaning the brake that brings the fan to rest and then we would apply the parking brake to hold it there.

Thanks Liam

RE: Brake system of a fan

What sort of fan are you dealing with, that needs a service brake and a parking brake?
