Shortly after announcing its ADB22X air disc brakes will come standard on International LT Series trucks, Bendix has recently revealed plans to equip Hyundai Translead trailers with the ADB22X-LT air disc brakes.
The ADB22X-LT’s design weighs in at 40 pounds lighter per tandem axle, making it the lightest air disc brake available in the market, and helping deliver increased payload capacity and value in trailer applications that are particularly sensitive to brake weight, according to a Bendix press release. The light weight can help with fuel efficiency and reduce weight to make room for other fuel-efficient technology such as aerodynamics.
The ADB22X-LT features a new brake pad, the Bendix BX276, which delivers 8 percent more wearable volume and up to a 40 percent improvement in wear rate compared to previous pads, combining to extend the service life beyond current air disc brake pad standards.
ADB22X-LT offers a pad replacement time approximately one-quarter that of drum brakes, improving uptime and boosting productivity in the garage. The brake pad’s design eliminates the possibility of rust jacking. The system features an internal self-adjustment mechanism that can help lower the risk of brakes being found out of adjustment during inspection, which can affect Compliance, Safety, Accountability scoring.
The Bendix air disc brakes offer an optimal braking solution capable of meeting a wide range of needs, at up to a 23,000-pound brake rating. Improved side-to-side brake balance helps keep the trailer behind the tractor during heavy braking.
