UNDERSTANDING THE TWO TYPES OF VEHICLE BREAKS


Breaks are certainly the most ultimate safety feature for any vehicle, and it is imperative for you as a driver to know the two types of brake in your car. This will not only help you to have good knowledge on how to care for your vehicle brakes but also help you to know the kind of break you should use in case you need to repair or replace your vehicle break.

These two types of service breaks are Disc brake and Drum brakes. They are the actual mechanics that are responsible for the slowing down or stopping of your vehicle. Many vehicles have two front breaks and two back brakes, while some have disc brakes for the entire four wheels.

Disc Brakes: Disc brakes or rotor, as it is commonly called in U.S.A comprises brake rotor, caliper, and the brake pad, which are directly connected to the wheel. Anytime there is an applied pressure through the master cylinder to the hydraulic system, the brake pads are pushed against the brake rotor, which helps your vehicle to stop. This is as a result of the friction between the pads and the rotor, which forces the car to slow down or stop.
Drum Brakes: The drum brakes system consists of brake drum, brake shoes, wheel cylinder, and brake spring. The brake shoes are installed inside the brake drum, and when there is an applied pressure on the wheel cylinder, the hydraulic pressure will press the two brake shoes against the drum, which will create fiction and make the vehicle to stop. The brake spring, however, reduces the drag by dragging the shoes back from the pedal.
