The right braking system for your vehicle

Features and benefits

  • Sustained high quality assured by testing and continuous quality checks (FMEA, dimension test, release pressure test, functional test on the vehicle, vibration test, dirt test, fatique strength test with one million braking cycles, hot and cold test (80° C, -40° C), force output check)
  • Improved sealing using innovative fl anging technique
  • Optimum corrosion protection for the housing components by means of various high-quality coating procedures
  • Optimum corrosion protection for the springs by means of double coating
  • Inch and metric connections available
  • BPW brake cylinders have long stroke capability as standard

  • Brake cylinder sizes / brake cylinder confi gurations are calculated using BPW brake calculations for each vehicle type.
  • New ECE certificates and test reports are available on the BPW website
