Haldex introduces rivet-less covers for S-ABA Style automatic brake adjuster

Haldex has introduced rivet-less front and rear covers for the S-ABA style automatic brake adjusters. According to the company, the existing front and rear covers, which have a retaining rivet, will be replaced by the new rivet-less front and rear covers that will be retained by an adhesive compound. The rear cover will have a unique grease relieve creating a designed path for grease flow, providing enhanced sealing and improved tamper resistance.

The brake adjuster’s design offers correct fit with easy installation, improved performance and extended service life, Haldex noted. Additionally, the company said the product: establishes its own reference point; functions properly with the control arm setting itself at any angle within the total range of permissible control arm positions allowed; provides the proper lining-to-drum clearance regardless of the control arm installation angle, which means that it maintains a constant and uniform distance between the brake and drum lining; solves adjustment problems caused by incorrect installation; improves performance with a more sensitive adjustment rate; lowers the risk of over-adjustment during prolonged braking; helps prevent brake wear, reducing operating and downtime costs; and streamlines inventories and lowers handling and storage costs by effectively replacing several other fixed control arm brake adjusters.
