Webb Wheel rolls out Vortex Unlimited cast brake drum


Webb Wheel’s Vortex Unlimited cast brake drum is available for most steer, drive and trailer axle applications and is designed to be durable and run cooler because of improved heat transfer efficiency.

A center squealer band helps strengthen the drum, while cast-in exterior ribs help conduct heat away from the brake surface. A wear indicator on the drive and trailer axle drums helps maximize available life while saving labor time and cost.

The drums are available in 15-by-4, 16.5-by-5, 16.5-by-7, 16.5-by-8 and 16.5-by-8.625 sizes.
