In the case of pneumatic brakes, spring brake cylinders convert the energy of compressed air into mechanical force and motion.
They are a combination of diaphragm brake cylinders and a springbrake chamber and are primarily installed on the rear axle.
During braking, the compressed air presses against the diaphragm in the brake cylinder, so that the push rod is moved forward by the piston. Hereby, the diaphragm brake cylinder acts as a service brake. When the pressure in the diaphragm brake cylinder is reduced,
the diaphragm and the push rod are pushed back by a spring into the initial position.
DT-Technic InfoDue to the spring-brake chamber, spring brake cylinders also serve as parking or auxiliary brakes. In the case of a pressure drop in the pressure reservoir the parking brake is mechanically actuated by means of a strong spring. The release of the parking brake takes place by re-application of compressed air, whereby the spring is pushed back into the driving mode. If a spring brake cylinder is gradually vented using the hand-brake valve, it can also fulfil the function of an auxiliary brake.
Spring brake cylinders of the DT Spare Parts brand undergo extensive quality controls to ensure perfect functioning. These include visual inspection, inspection of the surfaces, performance tests, as well as dimension and leakage tests. Furthermore, corrosion tests are carried out on the salt-water test stand, as well as vibration and climate chamber tests. In long-term tests, the durability of the spring-brake chamber is tested for at least 300 000 cycles and the durability of the diaphragm brake cylinder for at least 1 000 000 cycles.
Brake cylinders of the DT Spare Parts brand are manufactured in accordance with DIN standards and undergo various stages of production during the manufacturing process. A special aluminium housing, as well as a zinc-nickel coating, ensure optimum corrosion protection and a long and safe service life.
