The benefits of FNC treatment evident here on rotor brake
plate surfaces relative to corrosion growth and pad to rotor corrosion adhesion are similar to other published investigations on these topics documented to date, and will not be explored in depth in this paper.
I held at the "No Rotor Brake
Start Procedure" to conserve fuel.
Believe it or not, one pilot paged through the advisories and warnings on the MFD too quickly, released the rotor brake
while the gust lock was still engaged and destroyed the gust lock!
According to HAWE, hydraulic control of the yaw and rotor brake
shield gearboxes, rotor blades, tower, and foundations from wear and tear.
After researching maintenance diagrams and schematics, he discovered a rotor brake
could engage at high-rotor rpm when certain wires within the same bundle touched.
Demag DK Chain Hoists incorporate a Conical Rotor Brake
Motor, ergonomic push button, variable speed stepless option, overload clutch and the Demag exclusive load halt device.
The original travel drive unit was replaced by a system consisting of a Demag DRS Wheel Block at each corner of the transfer car and a Demag KBF (self-braking) Conical Rotor Brake
Motor, with a three-stage gearbox, driving two of the wheel-block units by a cross shaft.
It now looks as if naval technicians either wrongly set, or failed to set, a lifesaver device fitted to the rotor brake
A rotor brake
, for example, simply stops the movement of helicopter blades more quickly after engine shutdown than when they are allowed to coast down.
We grabbed the PCLs, shut down the engines, and stopped the rotor blades with the rotor brake
. The aircraft obviously was down--end of night.
