The Aftermarket Business Unit of Webb Wheel Products is introducing a new brake drum selection program, Right for You, that it says offers end users the best value proposition when purchasing replacement drums.
According to Webb Wheel, brake drums can be the proper size to fit a wheel end but dependent upon a vehicle’s application, and other product characteristics are important to consider to ensure proper performance and operating costs. Webb Wheel says the Right for You program is designed to help customers make that decision.
A video, Proper Brake Drum Selection, available at www.webbwheel.com explains how braking events affect a brake drum depending on vehicle speed, total weight and rate of brake deceleration, the company says. It gives the viewer information to determine the best brake drum for their operation. A test can be taken after viewing the video to certify that the material has been understood.
Webb Wheel currently offers four 16.5 in. by 7 in. brake drums with an 8.78 in. pilot rated to 23,000 lbs. They are as follows: Webb Value Brake Drum, Webb Standard Brake Drum, Webb High Performance Brake Drum and Webb Vortex Unlimited Brake Drum.
