- Extends life of shoes, drums and discs up to 7 times
- 20% in rim
- 2% in fuel
- Travel times are greatly reduced
- 85% of braking is handled by ElectroMagnetic Brake Retarder. Brake shoes stay cool.
- Stopping distance is reduced by half.
- No friction. No maintenance.
This study by the University of Utah (USA)shows the brake applications versus the retardation value and brake wear.
It confirms that electro magnetic retarders are best suiteble to prevent brake wear and most effective compared to hydraulic - or engine brake concepts.
