Bendix EverSure spring brake selling well with No Touch technology
Mar 1, 2012 12:00 PM
The Bendix EverSure spring brake with No Touch technology continues to gain market acceptance a year after its introduction. Sales of this spring brake, an innovation of Bendix Spicer Foundation Brake LLC (BSFB), have increased by double digits. The EverSure spring brake offers fleets improved fuel efficiency because of its lighter-weight, robust design; extended service intervals; and best-in-class force output.
A key advance in the EverSure spring brake is the elimination of contact between compressed power spring coils, allowing the protective coating to remain intact and resulting in improved corrosion resistance. Contact damage between coils leads to corrosion, which can ultimately cause the spring brake to fail. The spring brake is also engineered with an increased number of active coils, which further reduces surface stresses in the power spring.
The EverSure spring brake with No Touch technology is approximately two pounds lighter. This allows trucks and trailers to carry increased payload, while helping offset extra weight added to commercial vehicles by engine systems designed to meet recent emissions regulations. The product's lighter weight also enhances vibration resistance.
BSFB optimized the diaphragms of the EverSure spring brake, resulting in superior force output at both standard and long stroke lengths.
The EverSure spring brake, which has undergone extensive validation tests, exceeds all compliance requirements for performance and durability in original equipment, as well as aftermarket. It is designed to industry-standard dimensions, making it easy to install as a replacement part.
