MGM Improves Magnum Spring Brake Capabilities
May 1, 2001 12:00 PM
The MGM Brakes Magnum Performance Plus series of piston-type spring brakes has an improved ability to handle space, weight, performance, safety, life expectancy, and quality requirements. Advantages of these actuators include:
3" (76-mm)-long stroke design ensures increased reserve stroke and greater safety.
Patented “roll-in” tamper-resistant design prevents inadvertent disassembly of the power spring housing, while eliminating the large-outside-diameter flange.
Patented dual-thread release bolt design offers minimal bolt protrusion at maximum release.
New push-rod boot (for ball end adjuster disc brake applications only) seals the non-pressure chamber to the caliper upon installation with a two-lipped compression seal.
Power spring has a corrosion protection coating of electrostatically applied and baked-on epoxy.
External breather tube system prevents entry of liquid and airborne contaminants, allowing the exchange of only clean atmospheric air from the inside of the non-pressure chamber to the power spring chamber.
Double protective coating on the head increases the actuator's impact and corrosion resistance.
Compatible with S-cam, wedge, and air disc brake designs.
