Haldex Commercial Vehicle Systems says it now offers its Gold Seal and Life Seal double-diaphragm spring brakes for vocational applications, including refuse haulers, cement mixers and dump trucks. According to the company, the brake’s heavy-duty service housing, dust boot and Neoprene service diaphragm are proven and tested for tough truck applications.
The brake’s housing is made from 8-gauge steel and is 10 percent thicker and stronger than standard housing, while its black powder coating provides added corrosion protection, Haldex says. The dust boot helps prevent the entry of damaging contaminants and also offers added protection from water ingress for truck applications with upward pointing pushrods, while the nylon fabric-reinforced service diaphragm offers added resistance to chemicals, oil and garbage waste.
Haldex offers a four-year unlimited mileage warranty on Life Seal and a one-year 100,000-mile warranty on Gold Seal. For more information, go to www.haldex.com.
