Air Brake Compressor Design for Extended Life and High Performance 730685

This paper describes a new 2-cyl, reciprocating type, air compressor designed for use as an air source for heavy-duty truck air brake systems. It explains the objectives of a new design and how these objectives were met. A short history of present compressor deficiencies is given, together with recommendations to avoid these shortcomings.
Emphasis is placed on positive design features to control oil consumption and minimize the formation of carbon. Also described are design features to eliminate structural failures on highly stressed, critical components found in present-day air compressors.
