Webb Wheel releases training video

Updated Jul 31, 2012

Webb Wheel has added a new training video with an associated tech certification test to the Training Toolbox on its website, www.webbwheel.com.

The new video, titled “Proper Brake Drum Selection” illustrates clearly how braking events affect a brake drum depending on vehicle speed and total weight as well as rate of brake deceleration, Webb Wheel says; and it explains how different drum designs manage the amount of heat generated at each stop.  Because of these variables, the company says vehicle use is an important factor in choosing the right drum for a particular application, and the video assists a fleet in determining the proper designs for them to ensure the best brake performance and lowest cost of maintenance.

After viewing the video, Webb Wheel says a test can be taken on the website to certify that the technician understands how to make this determination for the vehicles he maintains.
