What is the difference between air brakes and oil brakes? How should they be adapted to the model?




Air brakes are generally composed of air compressor, brake valve, brake chamber, air storage cylinder, air pressure gauge, air pump, pressure spring, safety valve, brake line and other components.

The structure of air brakes is relatively complex and requires a large installation space, which is suitable for medium and large vehicles.

In contrast, the structure of oil brakes is simpler and generally consists of a master brake pump, sub-pump, oil cup and connecting piping. This also makes the installation space smaller and suitable for small vehicles.

In terms of braking medium, the two are also different. Air brakes mainly rely on air, which is pressurized to push the brake pads; oil brakes use special brake fluid as the medium to push the brake pads through the oil.
