"Corrosion Fighter" Technology

Form #: 5092

(Download only at this time)

A way to reduce the effects of this “corrosive” attack is to break the electrical conductivity between the parts by changing one of the existing components to a non-conductive material. This is what MGM Brakes Engineering has done by designing a new spring guide constructed from heavy-duty, non-conductive composite material. The composite guide prevents metal to metal contact between the end coil of the power spring and the head of the brake, effectively “breaking the circuit”, therefore slowing the corrosion process and reducing “corrosion” related brake failures.

Field Replacement of Chambers Equipped with "Welded" Yokes

Form #: BT-2

Everyday, more and more vehicles are being manufactured with 3-inch “long stroke” spring brakes and service chambers with the yoke “welded” to the service push-rod. Because the “welded” yoke is permanently attached to the push-rod, it is virtually impossible to remove and re-use it. Be sure to always replace like for like.  Do not mix 2.5-inch “standard stroke” chambers with 3-inch “long stroke” chambers across the axle. This brochure talks about field replacement.
