Kenworth Truck Co. has produced a brochure on Bendix ADB22X air disc brakes from Bendix Spicer Foundation Brakes. The T660, T800 T2000 and W900 Class 8 models are available with Bendix air disc brakes on the front axle alone or on all wheels.
The Bendix ADB22X air disc brake is a lightweight package designed to help reduce total wheel-end weight compared to other air disc brake packages and many drum configurations, offer extended brake life and provide fast, easy pad replacement.
Bendix ADB22X air disc brakes feature a mono-block caliper design that facilitates a compact brake; this design offers sealing that facilitates added protection from environmental elements, and a larger rotor intended to absorb more energy.
The Bendix air disc brake is available from Kirkland, Wash.-based Kenworth with an aluminum hub and the Splined Disc rotor assembly.
