This Is A Quick Way To Check The Self Braking System On Trucks And Buses

JAKARTA – Vehicle maintenance is the main key so that the vehicle can function optimally, especially in the braking system.

UD Truck shares self-check air braking steps that can be done before starting activities with the vehicle.

UD Truck Product Management Catur Satyawira, said the first thing to do is check the front and rear brake air pressure by monitoring the pressure gauge in the Instrument Cluster to normal if the time it takes the indicator on the display increases in line with the values ​​in the table.

“If it does not rise normally, there may be a leak in the air system or some other problem. Immediately contact the dealer, check that the air pressure indicated on the air pressure gauge is normal. The pressure is normal if the display indicator is within the range shown in table 770 – 950 kPa {7.7 – 9.5 bar}. If the wind pressure is below standard it will cause locking of the braking, “explained Catur.

Second, flush the water in the air tank with a water dryer. Air dryer is a device that works to remove the water content in compressed water (compressed air).

“This system is usually an integral part of the process with the compressor. Make sure to always drain the air in the air tank before operating the vehicle or every morning,” added Catur.

Third, an indication of normal brake valve operation if the brake pedal is not stuck when pressed and the sound of exhaust air can be heard when released. The brake pedal should return to its original position when released.

On large vehicles such as trucks and foam, usually use exhaust brakes or exhaust breaks.

To see if the exhaust brakes are functioning optimally with the engine stationary, the gas pedal and clutch are fully free (not pressed), check to see if the exhaust brakes are functioning normally and the exhaust gas brake indicator light is on at the time when the brake switch is on. exhaust gas on.

Especially for Air Over Hydraulic Braking, the driver can check to see if the sound of exhaust air can be heard from the brake valve installed in the front panel and the brake pedal returns gently when the brake pedal is pressed and released.

“The normal condition is that the exhaust air sound can be heard and the brake valve returns gently when the pedal is pressed back. If you find something abnormal, your vehicle should be checked and repaired by an Authorized dealer,” said Chess.

Second, check for air leaks also before starting operation, run the vehicle in a safe place at a speed of 5-10 km/h and apply the brakes to check if the braking is sufficient and there is no one-sided braking.

“If the brakes do not function normally or if there is only one-sided braking, adjust the brakes. The adjustment method varies depending on the specifications of your vehicle. If the brakes have signs of a problem, be sure to have them checked and adjusted to your Authorized dealer,” he said.

Third, check the brake air pressure on the air pressure gauge. Remove all air in the air tank and check every necessary to turn off the air pressure warning light.

“If the measured time is the same as the specification drawing, the air filling is normal. The filling time is less than 6 minutes. Make sure to always drain the air in the air tank before operating the vehicle or every morning,” explained Catur.
