Webb Vortex brake drums from Webb Severe Duty are suitable for high frequency stopping applications such as refuse trucks and other fleets that carry heavy loads and make repeated stops throughout their daily operation. The drum design dissipates heat and lowers the average brake operating temperature, lowering lifecycle costs. Webb Vortex severe-duty drums were designed for and tested in the refuse industry to maximize the benefits for trucks operating in these environments, where brakes carry the third highest operating cost after fuel and tires. The solution focuses on heat management; lower operating temperatures extend brake drum and friction life and may improve costs by offsetting the excessive heat that can negatively impact tire life. Six new drums are available for various brake sizes to fit multiple applications.
