The Drum Brake System is particularly suitable for motor vehicle teaching. The unit permits to demonstrate the difference in the braking torque between leading and trailing shoe braking systems and the effect on the braking torque of the different combinations of leading and trailing shoes.
With this unit we can carry out studies and experiments to investigate the relationship between actuating forces and the braking torques and for the determination of the coefficient of friction between the brake lining and the drum.
To have drum torque and braking load applied by weights hangers and cord.
In order to carry out some of the practices with MFT unit, 2 set of weights “B type” are required.
Two shoes with brake linings are provided.
There are available, as optional, shoes with full lining (MFTB accessory) and shoe with adjustable lining (MFTA accessory) to enable the students to carry out other experiments and investigations.
Manuals: This unit is supplied with the following manuals: Required services, Assembly and Installation, Starting-up, Security, Maintenance and Practices manual.
Dimensions: 455 x 270 x 300 mm. approx. (17.91 x 10.63 x 11.81 inches approx.).
Weight: 15 Kg. approx. (33 pounds approx.).
1- Demonstration of a drum brake with leading and trailing shoes.
2- Demonstration of the effect on the braking torque of different combinations of leading and trailing shoes.
3- To study the difference in the braking torque between leading and trailing shoe braking systems.
4- To determine experimentally the variation of tangencial force with braking load.
5- To investigate the relationship between actuating forces and the braking forces.
6- Determination of the coefficient of friction between the drum and the brake shoe.
7- With the optional accessory MFTA the student can investigate the effect on the braking torque when the pressure point on the brake shoe is displaced relative to the pivot point.
