Demystifying Airbrakes 2: Spring brake valve

Demystifying Airbrakes 2:  Spring brake valve

The valve is a Tramec TEV 70psi spring brake valve. A spring brake valve basically accomplishes two tasks. Releasing parking brakes by compressing the springs in brake chambers, and filling air tanks. A great article (PDF) from Tramec can be found at the link below. A Sealco 110700 valve is very similar to this Tramec valve, but is more common and of much better quality. If you need to replace a spring brake valve, I recommend using Sealco parts. Trust me.

A viewer, Brake Nut, provided me with the following information. Sometimes I just can’t explain things well enough so I’m glad to have other people share what they know.

“That little valve you couldn’t remove at 2:40 ish is a one way check valve.. Anti Compounding is simply a protection system that won’t allow the pressure to be ADDED to the service side of the chambers if the park spring are released. With the red button out, air has been exhausted from the spring brake cavity and the push rods are pushed forward mechanically with the heavy spring of the chamber.. If you make a service brake application with the spring brakes applied, you compound the forces on the slack. Anti Compounding.. in this case.. with no pressure on the supply side of the piston (in the valve) .. the same service signal (blue line) applying air to the service side of the pots .. that same signal is entering the trailer emerg valve and will push through the check valve and through the orifice you described.. and begin filling the spring brake side of the chamber pushing on the large diaphragm in the pot Just imagine a cut-away spring brake chamber.. you’ll have equal pressure pushing on the service and pushing on the park side.. proportionally.. ”

Regrooving Truck Tires

Regrooving Truck Tires

This is a very seasoned tire veteran demonstrating how regrooving of tires is done. Tires are 11R24.5 Bridgestone M726 EL. This is reuseing old tires that were worn out and though is not extremely common, is still an acceptable practice in extending the virgin tread’s life on a truck tire; however it is not acceptable or encouraged to put this on steer applications on either passenger/ public transportation or vehicles hauling hazardous materials.
