5019-A Air


The 5019-A air applied caliper disc brake of Kobelt is built entirely of bronze and stainless steel. It is providing a solid, long-lasting braking solution for even the harshest environments. This brake is often used as a service brake on uncoilers, paper machines and more.

Kobelts 5019-A air brakes comes in several different mounting configurations. It is intended to be paired with Kobelt’s 3/4″ x 2″ (19 mm x 51 mm) series ventilated discs. The customer is able to choose from a wide array of configuration options such as mounting style, disc thicknesses and brake pad types.

Kobelt brake models are designed to reduce the burden of ongoing service and maintenance. This minimizes the overall cost of ownership.

All Kobelt caliper brakes can be fitted with either air applied, hydraulic applied, spring applied with air released or spring applied with hydraulic released actuators depending on the required service.


The foundation plate to support the brake caliper must be designed to withstand the maximum braking forces generated by the brake caliper. It must also be flat to ISO tolerance grade IT8 and square to the brake disc. A brake pedestal must be designed to allow the mounting bolts to be inserted from underneath. The rotating element should have bearings sufficient to carry the weight of the disc. It also resist the additional stress when the disc brake is applied. The spigot that centers the brake disc must not be designed in such a way that it impedes the thermal expansion of the disc.
Any guarding around the brakes must provide enough room to allow full extension of the brake
actuators plus full pad wear adjustment.

The piping to the brakes must be adequately sized to ensure rapid response times in all weather conditions. The piping must be selected to safely withstand the pressures required to operate the brakes.

For all Kobelt brakes are repair kits available.
