Link Manufacturing has delivered the first set of its new Triton Tri-Drive Air Suspensions to the market.
Link says this ultra-high-capacity tri-drive air suspension is engineered to be used in multi-axle configurations for heavy-haul and off-highway applications.
Triton Tri-Drive Air Suspensions are engineered for application flexibility and can be combined to provide a variety of vehicle carrying capacities, including 35K single-drive, 70K dual-drive and 105K tri-drive configurations.
The Triton mounting system features extra-wide weight-bearing brackets that provide yaw stability, delivering predictable and well-balanced handling. According to the company, ride quality is also enhanced by Triton’s high-mounted air springs and under-slung spring saddles, which allow plus or minus 4 in. of articulation, minimizing roll.
Additional features, according to the company, include:
- Equipped with both longitudinal and lateral control rods that ensure proper axle tracking and alignment.
- Trailing beams are interconnected by a torsion bar and dual-height control valves help the suspension maintain optimum ride height independent of load levels.
- All units are fitted with heavy-duty shock absorbers.
- The suspensions use polyurethane bushings to provide longer service life and eliminate lubrication requirements.
