Hendrickson Trailer Suspension Systems has launched the Chassis Axle (HCA) for intermodal chassis applications. It supplies a one-piece axle bar with hot-formed spindles and a patented axle filter for internal venting. HCA comes fully dressed with a standard package including e-coated brake shoes, five-spoke hubs and drums.
With an axle capacity of 22,500 lb, the 5-in. round standard HCA features rigid forged steel spiders and 16.5-by-7-in. brakes. In addition, hardened machined cam heads, journals and splines and an oil-impregnated bronze spider bushing enhance durability.
Options to enhance the standard package include extended-service brakes and extended brake-shoe warranty, brake chambers, brake adjusters and ABS alternatives, parallel spindles and hub-piloted hubs and drums.
