Mooring winch brake drums are designed to work effectively in only one direction andit is essential that lines are reeled on drums in a manner that takes due account ofthe brake’s properties.For many years, advice on the correct reeling of lines on winch drums has beenbased on the fixed end of the brake band being in tension. This guidance has beenpromulgated in publications such as ‘Mooring Equipment Guidelines’ and ‘EffectiveMooring’ and assumes a brake band arrangement similar to that depicted below.In the above diagram, the line under tension pulls against the fixed end of the brakeband, thereby forcing the free end of the band toward the fixed end and causing thetwo halves of the band to be clamped or closed together around the winch drum.This is the ‘standard’ arrangement upon which previous guidance has been based.Recently, a number of winch manufacturers have designed winches that have brakeband arrangements that result in the fixed end on the band being undercompression, rather than tension, when operating with lines correctly reeled. Thesearrangements are often associated with designs that incorporate hydraulically springapplied brakes, an example of which follows:
