Air Brake Foundations

The Air Brake Foundations class focuses on a commonsense approach to performing a brake job.

This seminar will cover:

  • How to disassemble the wheel
  • How to take a complete analytical look at the components
  • How to diagnose wear patterns and component failure to determine air system problems versus foundation problems
  • How to identify acceptable tolerances and whether or not a component should be reused
  • Difference between an air dryer and an after cooler and the effect on the air system
  • Proper wheel bearing inspection procedures with proper installation methods, proper wheel seal inspection and installation procedures

Air Brake Foundations is part of our Truck Brakes Training Series. MTAC recommends participants also enroll in our Basic Air Systems and Air Brake ABS Systems classes.
