Bendix Spicer Foundation Brake LLC announces a new double-diaphragm spring brake for drum brakes. The Bendix EverSure spring brake with No Touch technology is designed to industry-standard dimensions, making it easy to install as a replacement part in the aftermarket.
This spring brake is more than two pounds lighter than other spring brakes. For trucks and trailers outfitted with the spring brake, benefits of the weight reduction include the ability to carry increased payload and improved fuel efficiency. The lighter weight design helps offset the extra weight added to commercial vehicles by engine systems designed to meet recent emissions regulations. Lower vibration levels help prolong the life of the spring brake and supporting components.
Another key advancement in this spring brake is the elimination of contact between compressed power spring coils, allowing the protective coating to remain intact and resulting in better corrosion resistance.
BSFB also optimized the diaphragm geometry of the EverSure spring brake, resulting in best-in-class force output. While it is also available in the aftermarket, this spring brake exceeds all compliance requirements for performance and durability in original equipment.
