Semi-trailers, low-frame trawls and platforms, which are designed to transport large and heavy loads, must meet fairly stringent standards and requirements. The key factor is the strength of the frame and the equipment of semi-trailers with all kinds of functional equipment.
The design of any semi-trailer is quite complex. Some mechanisms are actuated by compressed air. These units are part of the pneumatic system, which must be serviced only by qualified specialists.
Trans-Auto-D, a well-known manufacturer of low-frame trawls and semi-trailers, uses a pneumatic system from the well-known European plant WABCO to equip it. The pneumatic system includes a compressor unit that supplies compressed air to the preparation system to clean the mixture from all sorts of contaminants and moisture.
Compressed air is required for the operation of such components and mechanisms of the semi-trailer as:
Pneumatic assemblies and mechanisms, like any other equipment, require regular maintenance and repair. Breakdowns are the result of natural wear of components and parts that operate at high pressures and under intense loads.
What does maintenance include and what maintenance work needs to be done with semi-trailers? Based on the regulations, standards and requirements of technical regulations, the mechanics of any trucking company must perform the following routine procedures:
The dehumidifier cartridge must be replaced at least once a year. Before leaving the route, each driver is obliged to check the operation of the pneumatic system – in particular, the operation of the brakes.
For an experienced driver, there is no difficulty in identifying problems with the operation of the tire. The fault may be due to brake pedal failures, oil leaks from the pipes and the compressor. The characteristic whistling of air from damaged highways also indicates a violation of the efficiency and functionality of the pneumatic system.
Chassis repair may include maintenance or complete replacement of elements such as:
High-quality and professional repair of the pneumatic system, which is performed by TAD specialists, is a guarantee of traffic safety and long-term operation of your vehicle, even with the maximum load of the semi-trailer or trawl.
