Webb Vortex Lightweight Brake Drum
June 2008, TruckingInfo.com - Feature
The Aftermarket Business Unit of Webb Wheel Products announced the availability of the high performing, lightweight Webb Vortex brake drum for aftermarket replacement needs.
The 16 ½ x 7 drum weighing 100 pounds, produced from standard gray iron metallurgy, is an alternative replacement drum for more expensive steel shelled or other lightweight drums used in rear and trailer applications.
The patent-pending Webb Vortex design profile with reinforcing center band and ribs results in a conventional gray iron brake drum that weighs less without comprimising reliability, and offers braking capabilities expected in heavier drums. The advanced technology contour adds 15 percent to the surface area and conducts heat away from the brake surface for heat dissipation and maximum lining life.
