Types of air over hydraulic brake system

A: Airoverhydraulic brake systems operate using a combination of compressed air and hydraulic pressure, and the release of the air and hydraulic pressure engages the master cylinder. It then applies pressure to the valves, and the brake fluid is released. TheDec 11, 2009 air over hydraulic brakes need explanation i understand hydraulic brakes, i understand air brakes, but i dont get air over hydraulic. why didnt the manufacturers just go with air brakes, it seems like there are two systems when one would work. types of air over hydraulic brake system

Jun 12, 2012  Re: Air brake over hydraulic brakes! ! ! Air brakes are naturally 'on' on trains, at least they always used to be. The brakes are applied with springs and held off with 'vacuum pressure This means that the system is fail safe. Lose power and the brakes are

At one and the same time however, that the components of an air airoverhydraulic system are visually inspected daily by drivers for damaged, loose or components that are not working. As well, the hydraulic components must be check for leaks and functionality. Other foundations brakes are: Disc brakes. Wedge brakes. The airoverhydraulic brake system has an airoverhydraulic power cylinder (fig. 348) that contains an air cylinder and a hydraulic cylinder in tandem. Each cylinder is fitted with a piston and a common rod. The air piston is of greater diameter than the hydraulic piston. This difference in the two pistons. types of air over hydraulic brake system TROUBLESHOOTING AIR BRAKE SYSTEM. Slowly depress the brake pedal and observe the gauges. When the air control pressure gauge shows between 1 and 5 psi, the hydraulic pressure at the hydraulic inlet should not exceed 40 psi. Excessive hydraulic pressure indicates a sticking relay piston or sticking control valve poppets.
