The brake course is split into two areas, the air system and the foundation brakes. The air system will cover types of components and their location along with piping layouts and port designations. Foundation Brakes will cover the Wabco PAN Series of Disc Brakes and the Knorr Bremse SN & SB Disc Brakes. A separate two day ABS course is offered, which, if completed in conjunction with this Brake course, will give participants a comprehensive understanding of the modern braking systems and components fitted to the current Alexander Dennis “Enviro” range of buses.
This two day course is aimed at all competent Technicians involved in the maintenance and repair of the major braking system components. Delegates will be encouraged to develop their understanding by participating in practical exercises & discussion throughout the two days.
Delegates will learn to carry out maintenance and repair procedures in line with the recommended service schedule and to recognise wear patterns and determine if repair or renewal is necessary. This includes full strip and rebuild of disc brake and carrier assemblies.
