How to Maintain Your Air Brakes
For obvious reasons, air brakes are an essential part of your rig. They also add a level of complication to the braking system that a conventional vehicle doesn’t have. At KG Truck & Auto in Glen Burnie, our mechanics have the knowledge, equipment, and ability necessary to keep your air brakes in top shape.
For the most part, air brakes are highly reliable. They allow ease in connecting and disconnecting heavy trailers to the braking system that a hydraulic system can’t offer, and are capable of tremendous stopping power. They have the added benefit of automatically applying emergency braking, in the event of a leak somewhere in the system, ensuring braking isn’t lost.
However, air brakes are comprised of many components, which will inevitably need servicing. Lines, pistons, tanks, valves, compressors, and dryers all need to be in good working order for the brakes to operate properly. If you notice an issue in your air braking system, have it fixed sooner rather than later. By doing so, you avoid the risk of further damage and hazardous driving conditions.
