Air brake hose has several key components to ensure durable and effective. It is the necessary part in the air brake systems of car, bus and other vehicles. While the SAE J1402 hose consists of these components.
The inner tube of an air brake hose is the innermost layer. While it directly contact with the compressed air. In general, it adopts synthetic rubber or thermoplastic which is resistant to pressure and oil. The inner tube is to carry the compressed air from the source to the brake system.
Reinforce is multiple layers of materials. But it’s often synthetic fiber or steel wire. Then they provide strength and make the hose more durable. These layers help the hose withstand the high pressures and prevent it from burst.
The outer cover is the protective layer that surrounds the reinforce. It serves as a shield which protect the inner layers from abrasion, UV moisture and chemical. Thus the outer cover is synthetic rubber or thermoplastic. Then it can protect the hose from wear and damage.
Air brake hose has end fittings which attaches to the ends of the hose. These fittings are to connect the hose to other parts within the air brake system. While those include brake chamber and brake valve. A well sealed brake hose fitting is very important to the whole brake system.
Above are the parts of SAE J1401 brake hose. In fact, any problems of each part will cause problem to the whole brake system. Thus you must make sure all the factors are well. Otherwise there will be brake problem during the driving. Worse more, it may cause serious accident.
