Exhaust Brake Butterfly Valve Two Stage Pressure Control Turbo Charged Exhaust Brakes
One of the most important components of the vehicle is the brakes. The Brake is an essential feature in order to retard and stop the vehicle within minimum possible time. In heavy vehicles apart from the conventional frictional brakes used, some systems are used to aid the braking process and increases the efficiency of braking such as exhaust brakes. The function of an exhaust brake is to aid in slowing down vehicles running with diesel engines without the use of the wheel brakes. This paper tells us about how the exhaust braking system is used in the vehicles, their major components and their pros and cons.
