Bendix Spicer Foundation Brake is now making a "next-generation" double-diaphragm spring brake for drum systems that’s said to offer the lightest weight in the industry while delivering both durability and performance. The new Bendix EverSure spring brake with No Touch technology is designed to industry-standard dimensions, making it a straightforward replacement part in the aftermarket.

The EverSure spring brake is more than 2 lb lighter than competitive spring brakes, the company claims, which leads to excellent vibration resistance. Lower vibration levels help prolong the life of the spring brake and supporting components.

NoTouch technology eliminates contact between compressed power spring coils, allowing the protective coating to remain intact and resulting in significantly better corrosion resistance than competitive products, Bendix says. Engineered with an increased number of active coils, the EverSure spring brake is also claimed to reduce surface stresses in the power spring. Durability is thus much enhanced.

BSFB also optimized the brake’s diaphragm geometry, said to result in "best in class" force output.
