Webb Wheel releases new training and certification video

Webb Wheel Products, Inc., Cullman, AL, has added a new training video with an associated tech certification test to the Training Toolbox on their website. The new Proper Brake Drum Selection video illustrates how braking events affect a brake drum depending on vehicle speed and total weight as well as rate of brake deceleration. It also explains how different drum designs manage the amount of heat generated at each stop.

The video assists a fleet in determining the proper designs for ensuring the best brake performance and lowest cost of maintenance. After viewing the video, a test can be taken on the website to certify that the technician understands how to make this determination for the vehicles they maintain.

All Webb Training Toolbox videos, files and certification tests can be accessed at www.webbwheel.com. Technicians can review and test themselves on proper brake drum selection and correct wheel-end installation procedures for different hub mounting systems and the consequences of not following the recommended practices.

Webb Wheel manufactures hubs, brake drums and rotors for medium- and heavy-duty trucks, trailers and buses.
