Air System Maintenance: Focusing on the Compressor

Jan. 8, 2015

At the heart of a commercial vehicle’s air brake system is its air compressor, which pressurizes air in the primary and secondary tanks to provide power for the air brakes and other pneumatic systems. With commercial vehicle technology advancing and expanding the use of compressed air for non-braking functions, knowledge of proper air compressor maintenance and operation has become even more important. As part of its Bendix Tech Tips series, Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems LLC offers insight on air compressor troubleshooting and replacement of an ESS (energy-saving system) piston.
