    Allison Transmission (NYSE: ALSN) is the world’s largest manufacturer of fully automatic transmissions for medium- and heavy-duty commercial vehicles and is a . The VR , on the other hand, is for heavy-class coaches and commercial vehicles, as well as for special vehicles. This is the most powerful hydrodynamic retarder available from Voith, featuring a high braking torque in combination with a low weight.3/5(1).

    Heavy duty vehicles cover body-on-frame vehicles classified by the Gross Vehicle Weight Ratings (GVWR) system as Class 1 through 8. The bodyon- -frame architecture is required for these types of vehicles to carry substantial payloads which can be significantly greater than the load carried by a light duty passenger Size: KB.

A retarder is a device used to augment or replace some of the functions of primary friction-based braking systems, usually on heavy ers serve to slow vehicles, or maintain a steady speed while traveling down a hill, and help prevent the vehicle from "running away" by accelerating down the hill.

Get this from a library. Retarders for heavy vehicles: evaluation of performance characteristics and in-service costs. [P Fancher; United States. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.; University of Michigan.

Highway Safety Research Institute.;]. Retarder Retarders are highperformance brakes decelerating even heavy vehicles safely and effectively. The retarder braking power is approximately twice the value the vehicle engine power.

The prop shaft driven rotor accelerates the oil being decelerated in the stator. The oil turbulence decelerates the rotor and thus brakes the Size: KB. ployed in developing safety performance analyses of heavy vehicles on down- grade sections of highways. The results of these various studies are appli in summarizing the items that prospective buyers of retarders need to know in order to estimate the cost benefits to be obtained from various levels of retarder power.

A retarder is a device used to augment or replace some of the functions of primary friction-based braking systems of (usually) heavy vehicles.

Friction-based braking systems are susceptible to 'fade' when used extensively, and this can become dangerous if the braking performance drops below that required to stop a vehicle -- for instance if a. A retarder is any device, besides the brakes, that slows a truck down.

There are several different types of retarder. Electrical retarders are a generator that fits in the drive line, when it is activated, it slows the truck by generating electric. Better braking – with Voith retarders for commercial vehicles. The solution: Using the VIAB wear-free integrated acceleration and braking system, even heavy-duty trucks can start up powerfully, maneuver accurately within millimeters, and brake safely – repeatedly and without wear.

This results in considerably longer periods when the. The Heavy Vehicle Drivers' Handbook will help you understand the additional rules and regulations that apply to you and your heavy vehicle. It is a useful guide outlining rules and regulations, skills and correct attitude required by heavy vehicle drivers.

This publication must be read in conjunction with the Road Users’ Handbook and Load. Rescue vehicles: ambulances, fire trucks. Heavy duty applications: cranes, mining, timber. Working principle» ¿How does the FRENELSA electric retarder work.

Order information» Ask for information, FRENELSA electric retarders can be fitted to any vehicle in the market. A brake retarder uses pressure created within the engine to lessen the speed of a vehicle. While most commonly used in commercial semi-tractor trailer rigs, it can also be used in railroad applications.

Heavy Truck Engine Retarders: Testing and Theory This technical paper presents the results of full scale vehicle testing completed to examine deceleration on late model tractor semitrailer vehicles equipped with original equipment manufacturers (OEM) engine : Steven Christoffersen, Jerry Wallingford, Bill Greenlees.- Retarders.

Some vehicles have "retarders." Retarders help slow a vehicle, reducing the need for using your brakes. They reduce brake wear and give you another way to slow down. There are four basic types of retarders (exhaust, engine, hydraulic, and electric).

All retarders can be turned on or .
