RENTON, Wash. — TRP has announced the creation of a remanufactured brake program, offering linings for 20,000- and 23,000-lb applications to help fleets comply with the latest stopping distance and CSA requirements.
“With the recent passage of more stringent stopping distance requirements and the emphasis that the Federal Motor Carrier and Safety Administration places on brakes in its Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA) program, the scrutiny on brake quality and adjustment has increased dramatically,” said Jeff Hughes, TRP development manager.
TRP’s remanufactured brakes are engineered to perform to “new brake” standards at a significantly lower cost, according to the company. Applications covered by the new line include city delivery, heavy-haul and severe-service.
“Each grade is uniquely engineered and formulated to provide consistent braking performance and long lining life for specific applications,” said Hughes. Single brake shoes and kits are available in 15×4-inch and 16.5×7-inch sizes for both tractors and trailers. All products offered in the TRP program meet FMVSS 121 standards.
