Performance-Based Brake Test System (PBBT)

SuperFlow Technologies Group unveils their new self-powered Performance-Based Brake Test System (PBBT), a new brake testing system designed to reduce brake wear, maintenance costs, road accidents and improve safety for heavy-duty trucks. The new PBBT system offers:

  • The ability to test brake and hydraulic pressure capacity, under fully applied pressure, by driving the truck's tires with a set of rollers.
  • As the air pressure is applied to the brake system, force produced by the brake is measures, recorded and displayed on the computer, instantly comparing recorded brake force capability to known industry standards for brake function.
  • A hand-held remote control operation to monitor and record battery information.
  • Under carriage lighting and solid-state electronics are designed into the system for increased reliability.
  • A built-in, self-contained shuttle system enables the unit to elevate 1.5" off the ground and re-position itself through its own power source.
  • Both fore and aft ramps fold up easily for repositioning or when loading into trailers.
  • A computer monitor data acquisition system graphs out detailed, easy to read reports, including pass/fail summaries.
  • Heat exchangers to cool the PC's enclosure and hydraulic system in warmer weather. A cold weather package is also available.
  • Measuring functions including brake force (with wet tires), rolling resistance, threshold apply pressure and weight of axle.
  • According to the company, the user can test a 5-axle tractor trailer in 10-12 minutes.
  • A hydraulic shaker plate/lift system allows inspection for excessive play in kingpins and tie rods.
  • An audible engine alarm system with indicator lights, an audible lift warning system when using shaker plates E-stops at both ends of the tester and a fuel injected engine to power the rollers.
