Hendrickson Trailer Suspension Systems recently launched the Hendrickson Chassis Axle, which the company describes as an ideal choice for intermodal chassis applications. The latest addition to Canton, Ohio-based Hendrickson’s full line of industry-standard, low-maintenance axles, HCA supplies a one-piece axle bar with hot-formed spindles and a patented axle filter for internal venting.

Hendrickson says HCA comes fully dressed with a standard package, including e-coated brake shoes, five-spoke hubs and drums. With an axle capacity of 22,500 pounds, the five-inch round standard HCA features rigid forged steel spiders and 16.5-by-7-inch brakes. In addition, hardened machined cam heads, journals and splines and an oil-impregnated bronze spider bushing help enhance durability, according to the company.

Options to enhance the standard package include extended service brakes and extended brake shoe warranty, brake chambers, brake adjusters and ABS alternatives, parallel spindles and hub-piloted hubs and drums.
