Automotive and Off-Highway Air Brake Reservoir Performance and Identification Requirements - Truck and Bus
|Publication Date:||1 November 2018|
This SAE Standard applies to all new production air brake and air accessory reservoirs used in automotive vehicles and off-road machines. This document defines an "air reservoir" as a reservoir having single or multiple compartments that is used for storage of compressed air. This document does not apply to accumulators or reservoirs for storage of gases other than compressed air.
The purpose of this document is to provide MINIMUM performance requirements and a method of identifying new production air brake reservoirs. Additional requirements for corrosion resistance and pressure fatigue tests should be considered by the vehicle manufacturer.
