The Disc Brake System Analyzer, No. 007884, from Innovative Products of America tests sticky or frozen brake calipers and identifies the cause of the uneven brake pad wear. The analyzer also:
- Tests improperly adjusted proportioning valves, air-in hydraulic brake systems, power booster problems, imploded brake hoses and more.
- Comes with two load cells attached to analog gauges, each with a range of 0-5,000 psi/0-350 BAR.
- Features a red "tell tail" memory needle on the dial allowing for one-man brake testing.
The Disc Brake System Analyzer can quickly identify an imploded brake hose and quickly diagnose a proportioning valve imbalance.
If a customer comes to you with uneven brake wear and you just assume it is a bad caliper and replace it, you may be guessing. Imploded brake hoses and stuck proportioning valves produce hidden symptoms not easily diagnosed.
The Disc Brake System Analyzer can accurately detect exactly where the problem is and allow the tech to fix it the first time, saving time, energy, guess work and embarrassment when the customer comes back.
To check for disproportionate brake pressure balance, install the Disc Brake System Analyzer in place of the front brake pad and step on the brake. If you see a disparity in PSI from right to left, you most likely have a bad proportioning valve on the diagonal brake circuit. However, before replacing the portioning valve, be certain the rear brake adjustment is correct.
