H.C. Howell manufactures brake bands for every major manufacturer of oil and gas drilling equipment.. We use templates of the various manufactures to drill the required bands before we role them to the exact specification as required by the equipment to be braked.
We supply brakes to replace those used on major pieces of equipment. While we do not market a H.C. Howell brand of brake we will customize a brake band to a client’s individual specification.
H.C. Howell brakes are manufactured from the raw components. We have in house all the manufacturing processes from machining, drilling, rolling and welding to finishing assembly and paint. We use both woven and molded brake pads in line with the specification of the brake and best practice. We can advise clients on the best practice for brake design, component use and material.
