ArvinMeritor will make two new model EX225 DiscPlus air disc brakes available in October for a variety of heavy-duty truck, specialty vehicles, and trailer applications.
The EX225 series air disc brakes feature a modular sliding caliper design, which installs in 22.5-inch wheel envelopes.
ArvinMeritor said the EX225L offers a 35% increase in torque, a 15% increase in wearable lining volume, and is 12% lighter compared to its predecessor, the DX225.
The EX225H offers further increases in wearable lining volume and torque.
The brakes also feature internal automatic adjustment for pad wear, sealed synchronized twin pistons and robust sealing of slide pins for environmental protection, and can be supplied with an optional electronic pad wear sensor, an electrical pad wear warning indicator or a simple visual wear indicator.
