Haldex Commercial Vehicle Systems announced that the ModulX DB22LT disc brake is now available on Hendrickson axles. By transitioning to the ModulX DB22LT there is a 37 lb. weight savings per axle versus the previous model, the manufacturer noted.

The Haldex ModulX air disc brake slides on four stainless steel slide pins, providing a more compact, stable design than the standard two-pin design. The stainless steel pins increase corrosion resistance and require no lubrication. Two tappets equally distribute brake pad clamping force to ensure even wear, resulting in longer service life and lower maintenance costs, Haldex said.

DB22LT is an optimized disc brake design, engineered specifically for common heavy-duty applications. According to the company, it outperforms standard S-cam drum brakes in practically every category and saves about 18.6 lbs. per brake over the previous ModulX brake package.

ModulX is less sensitive to speed and temperature variation common in any extreme grade or demanding brake application, so it is said to provide more consistent, dependable performance. Air disc brakes outperform S-cam drum brakes with less brake fade and more consistent pedal pressure required. The added safety means more driver confidence, even in the most demanding applications. Efficient and responsive in the most demanding braking applications, ModulX does not suffer from significant hysteresis and deflection like traditional S-cam drum brakes. With ModulX, braking force is applied more equally to all wheels, providing greater control and stability.
