TRP Aftermarket Truck, Trailer and Bus Parts Debuts with New Spring Brake Chamber
RENTON, Wash., Dec. 11, 2009 — TRP(TM) Aftermarket Parts is introducing the TRP(TM) Aftermarket Parts spring brake chamber manufactured for use in all Class 6, 7 and 8 trucks, trailers and buses.
“The TRP spring brake chamber is available from TRP authorized Kenworth and Peterbilt parts and service distributors, throughout North America and is the first of a series of aftermarket products available for all make of trucks, trailers and buses,” said Everett Seymoure, brand manager for TRP. “TRP will continue to roll out products this year and into 2010.”
“Choosing the right replacement part is one of the most important decisions vehicle operators can make for their business, and their peace of mind,” Seymoure said. “That’s why the spring brake chamber was carefully tested and selected for high performance and reliability before receiving the TRP stamp of approval.”
Bob Broerman, owner and president of New Bremen, Ohio-based Go Bucks Trucking, said he’s been pleased with the performance and quality of his new TRP spring brake chambers.
Broerman’s company operates a fleet of 12 Kenworth T800 dump trucks, including four units equipped with conveyor bodies.
“We have a pretty long life cycle on our trucks; it’s about 10 to 15 years before we get something new,” Broerman said. “So, we rely on quality parts to keep our trucks operating in top shape.”
Go Bucks Trucking hauls about a quarter million ton of aggregate annually from local stone and gravel quarries for more than 100 area contractors. The aggregate is used in a variety of projects, including the construction of driveways, foundations, drainages, and septic drainfields.
“Our trucks have to be in top shape because contractors rely on us to make timely deliveries,” Broerman said. ”Often, we have 30 to 45-minute delivery windows we have to make. We can’t afford to have brake failures slow us down. And we certainly can’t have one of our trucks filled with aggregate roll away. That’s something we’ve seen happen to other companies, particularly when they run their trucks with inferior quality parking brakes.”
Broerman said he trusts TRP spring brakes since they are manufactured in North America and feature several high-quality components that make them superior, dependable products that last longer than lesser quality spring brakes. Features include:
- Epoxy-coated steel power springs for longer life and highly resistant to corrosion from road salts, chemicals and other contaminants.
- Highly polished chrome-plated internal push rod prevents internal seal wear.
- 10-gauge reinforced stud mounting housing provides exceptional strength.
- Stroke indicator helps the operator determine accurately when the brakes need adjustment or replacement.
- Heavy duty, synthetic rubber diaphragms provide high resistance to abrasion and contaminants found in pressurized air.
“The TRP spring brake chamber is a competitively-priced aftermarket part that has been thoroughly tested at state-of-the-art facilities to meet or exceed original equipment specifications,” Seymoure said. “Plus, they’re backed by industry-leading warranties and a network throughout North America of experienced dealers who know your vehicle and your business.”
