Jacob Bethel Corporation – Bulawayo Division is now the Zimbabwe agent for ABT SIBS Safe-fail braking system.
ABT’s Sealed Integrated Braking System (SIBS®) is the core technology from which the company has developed a range of fail-safe systems for mining support vehicles. The SIBS® brake is a fully enclosed system protecting the brake disc and brake pads against external contaminants.
The enclosed single rotor disc brake is immersed in oil. This results in minimal requirements and delivers significantly reduced vehicle downtime. The brake is environmentally friendly with no harmful brake dust emissions.
The SIBS® brake is able to provide all four brake system functions required by most stringent mining safety standards:
Automatic fail-safe brake (spring applied)
Operator applied emergency brake
Reliable park brake (push button)
Reliable service brake
SIBS® brakes have been designed to survive in the worlds harshest mining conditions and deliver unparalleled safety and lower operating costs. See more at http://www.advancedbraking.com
