Brake testing

Brake testing is carried out in workshops or out in the field, to determine, for example, whether a brake fault may have been caused wheel damage on a vehicle.

After replacing the wheels, brake testing equipment is used to verify the vehicle’s brake status. Carrying out work in the field means that the wagon can be used immediately after brake testing and does not have to be taken to the workshop.

Brake testing includes checking:

  • the sealing of the main line
  • that the load gear or load automatic device works as it should
  • C, T, ML and HL pressure. The equipment has 5 pressure sensors that allow testing on, in principle, all braking systems, for example 4 C pressure, 2 T pressure etc.
  • the actual braking force on the wheel to ensure that the braking force is not too high or low. This is carried out instead of T pressure measurement as it saves a lot of time and because it can be difficult to connect T pressure sensors in the field.
  • the control valve’s brake and shoe sensitivity as well as brake calliper sensitivity
  • the sealing of the brake cylinder, as large leaks can cause jammed brakes
  • the brake regulator’s function

After completed brake testing, a protocol is generated, which is sent to a server wirelessly. The protocol can be referred to at any time in order to verify the test results.
