Each mixer needs to choose the right brake pads, so how should we choose them? The manufacturer of small concrete mixer truck will give a detailed introduction:
At present, the materials of brake pads on the market are different. Semi metal brake pads, asbestos free organic brake pads, ceramic brake pads, etc. are common, and the performance is also from high to low. The basic requirements for the brake pads produced are: stable friction coefficient, long service life, low noise probability, low wear to the brake disc, stable high-temperature braking capability, low thermal expansion, qualified compression rate, low ash fall, and environmentally friendly materials.
The service life is a point of concern. Generally, the service life of brake pads is about 30000 km. Some brake pad materials will use large particles of graphite and brass, which can also effectively reduce the wear of the brake disc.
Friction coefficient is one of the parameters of friction materials, which determines the braking torque of brake pads. Generally, the manufacturer will indicate the friction coefficient on the package.
The brake pad may generate high temperature when braking, especially in the case of high-speed driving or emergency braking. Under high temperature, the friction coefficient of the friction pad will decrease, so we need to choose a brake pad with good safety.
Comfort mainly refers to friction, braking feeling, noise, dust, smoke, odor, etc.
In daily life, if you hear a squeaking metal friction sound when braking, it may be that there is a problem with the brake pads. At this time, you must check as soon as possible! However, whether the brake pads need to be replaced cannot be determined only by the feeling of stepping on the brake. Sometimes it may be caused by soft brakes or insufficient braking force, or it may be a problem with the brake pipeline.
Therefore, the brake pads of small concrete mixers should be selected to be qualified, so that there will be no accidents when driving the mixer. If you have any ideas, please come to our website consulting service
