Abstract:

A four year study of sintered iron brake wheel cylinder pistons versus aluminum pistons was conducted. Laboratory, static, and operational field tests were run. Corrosion was eliminated and gumming was greatly reduced in all cylinders containing sintered iron pistons. In operation, wear was diminished and the volume of sediment which formed in the brake system was greatly reduced.
