Getting the right brake adjustment setup and maintenance will improve safety and brake performance and this new technical advisory procedure developed by the ATA Industry Technical Council (ITC), provides information on a stroke checking tool and examples of templates and guides for correct adjustment.

This technical advisory procedure includes advice on chamber stroke and readjustment lengths, identification of stroke on the brake chamber end cap, brake chamber stroke length, and correct mounting of chambers with slack adjusters.

The procedure also provides  some supplier links for service, maintenance and correct setup.
