This book is directed towards mechanics involved in repairs and maintenance of airbrake systems. It covers most systems in use.
Inside Air Brake Valves and Devices and How they Work
Designed to be a companion to the “Air Brake Connection”, this manual adds a new dimension to the understanding of air brakes. Where the “Air Brake Connection” describes the hookup and function of the various air valves, the new manual, through simplified “x-ray” diagrams, shows how the devices actually accomplish those functions. The diagrams show a valve in each of its operational modes, allowing the reader to follow the flow of air from initial application, to full release. Written in 2008.
