2 Disc Brake Conversion MOVES THE WORLD

3 Trailer Industry The Trailer Industry Is Converting To Disc Brakes Just Like The Automotive Industry Did In The 1960’s

4 Trailer Industry During the past 20 years, trailers have grown larger and heavier and tow vehicles are continually getting lighter. Despite the increasing demands of trailer braking systems, most trailers still utilize electric drum brakes, which have shown very little improvement since the 1950’s.

5 What is Stopping You? Reasons To Ask Yourself

6 Better Performance Notice the drop in performance of this drum brake when tested at highway speed.

7 60 to 0 Is An Important Tool INDEPENDENT RESULTS 40 MPH TO A COMPLETE STOP USING TRAILER BRAKES ONLY You will see a 35% to 58% shorter stopping distance with disc brakes

8 Fewer Moving Parts Fact Disc Brake Calipers have one moving part Drum Brakes have between six and twelve moving parts

9 LOWER MAINTENANCE COSTS

10 Types of Trailers Currently Using Disc Brakes

11 To 12,000 lbs

12 Caliper Parts Available at Your Local Auto Parts Store Replacement Parts

13 Convert from Drum to Disc Brakes with Ease Conversion

14 Meets or Exceeds CSA-D313 Requirements Engineering

15 Stopping Distance

16 Brake Components Tailored To Your Customer’s Environment Automotive FinishSilver Cadmium Plating Stainless SteelE-coating

17 What Do I Need To Know About How To Actuate Disc Brakes? Brakes Can Perform No Better Than The Actuator Driving Them? Disc Brakes

18 An Actuator Can Perform No Better Than The Controller Driving It! 1.Use Only Inertia Based Controllers 2.A Decelorometer vs. Pendulum Electric / Hydraulic Actuator

19 MOVES THE WORLD

20 Reliable Performance All Components Self Contained Superior Performance Use Any Brake Control 70+ Cubic Inches Per Minute BrakeRite EHB & II

21 BrakeRite II EHB and II Response Time  Better Known as “Pucker Time” TIME TO 200 PSI TIME TO 90% MAX PRESSURE TITAN 0.3 SECONDS 1.1 SECONDS CARLISLE / DEXTER 1.3 SECONDS 3.4 SECONDS

22 1.Axle Size 2.Number Of Axles 3.Spring or Torsion 4.Number of Bolt Holes a)If Eight Hole Size of Studs Disc Brakes Conversion

23 1.Simply Remove Brake Cluster 2.Inspect Bearings a)Most Cases Can Reuse Bearings 3.Remove Any Wiring Remove Electric Brakes

24 1.Clean Spindle 2.Bolt Bracket To Flange 3.Mount Calipers at 10:00 4.Slide on Rotor 5.Install Bearings & Seals Install Disc Brakes

25 1.Find Proper Location a)Current Wiring b)Near Batteries c)Easy to Install Lines 2.Wire Actuator Install Actuator

26 1.Proper Wire a)White & Black 12 Gauge b)Blue 18 Gauge c)Violet & Brown 14 Gauge 2.No Frame Ground a)Back to Battery Wiring EHB

27

28 1.Choose Proper Line Kit a)Single, Tandem, Triple b)Torsion or Spring 2.Use Only DOT Approved 3.No Vertical Coils Install Brake Lines

29 BrakeRite Bench Test Important – Follow in This Order 1.Touch The White Wire To The Negative Port 2.Touch The Black Wire To The Positive Post  Nothing Should Happen Yet 3.Add The Blue Wire To The Positive Post  The BrakeRite Should Immediately Run  If The BrakeRite Does Not Run, There Maybe a Problem With The System  If It Does Run, Then A Wiring Problem Exists or An In Cab Control Problem Is the Issue

30 1.Pull Breakaway Switch and Bleed a)Start With Farthest from Actuator 2.Insert Breakaway Switch and Check Fluid Level 3.Repeat to Next Caliper Bleed and Check

31 Check EHB Manual For Compatible Controllers Ford / Chevy Integral System and Newer Controller Compatibility
