TKL Electrical Air Dryer Valve Volvo FH, FM image
K350
An air dryer’s job is to remove moisture before it reaches the supply tank. Easy enough, right? So as warm, moist air comes off the compressor, it mixes with the cool walls of the air dryer. Some of this moist air will condense on the walls and drain down into the purge-valve. At that point, the air is forced through a filter that removes the moisture, collects solid particles and aerosol contaminates. This treats the air. Then it expels the treated air through the drying via a one-way valve.

Brake System

The two types of brakes are disc or drum brakes mounted on the front or rear wheels

A brake is one of the most important controls of any vehicle. A brake system is basically a combination of some interactive parts. It absorbs energy from the moving part and slows down the vehicle with the help of friction. A brake system stops the vehicle within the smallest possible distance and hence this is done by converting the kinetic energy of the vehicle into the heat energy which is dissipated into the atmosphere. The two types of brakes are Disc Brakes and Drums Brakes. Disc brakes are mounted on front wheels whilst Drum brakes are mounted on rear wheels. Some modern high-end vehicles have Disc brakes on all four wheels. Browse through this category for brake systems available in Zambian stores.

The brake system takes the kinetic energy of your moving vehicle and converts it to thermal energy through friction. That energy is used to slow and stop your four-thousand-pound-plus metal machine. The concept is the same; the equipment, well that is a bit more complex.

Main Parts of a Braking System

  • Brake Pedal. The pedal is what you push with your foot to activate the brakes
  • Brake Master Cylinder. The master cylinder is basically a plunger that is activated by the brake pedal
  • Brake Lines
  • Rotors/Drums
  • Wheel Cylinders
  • Brake Pad

In most automobiles, there are three basic types of brakes; service brakes, emergency brakes, and parking brakes. These brakes are all intended to keep everyone inside the vehicle and travelling on our roadways safe.

A brake is a mechanical device that inhibits motion by absorbing energy from a moving system. It is used for slowing or stopping a moving vehicle, wheel, axle, or to prevent its motion, most often accomplished by means of friction. There are two kinds of service brakes, or the brakes that stop your vehicle while driving: disc and drum brakes.

The hollow drum turns with the wheel. When the brake pedal is depressed, a hydraulic cylinder pushes brake shoes with friction linings against the inner surface of the brake drum, creating friction and thereby slowing the wheel.

The mechanical braking system powers the hand brake or emergency brake. It is the type of braking system in which the brake force applied on the brake pedal is carried to the final brake drum or disc rotor by various mechanical linkages like cylindrical rods, fulcrums, springs etc.

The ability to stop or slow down at a split second significantly helps stop incidents and accidents. However, when you closely look at the sheer mechanics of how the braking system works, you'll begin to appreciate its function. Several components of your braking system work together to help keep the driver safe.

Even though both of these are used in most cars now with disc brakes being in front and drum brakes in the back, disc brakes are still the better choice.
