Recommended Posts

Fleet Owner / September 4, 2014

Stemco has released a new line of CentriFuse HD (heavy duty) brake drums for severe service applications.

CentriFuse HD brake drums provide up to double the service life of full-cast brake drums, Stemco said. They are designed to increase performance and safety for both on- and off-highway use, including logging, concrete, dump and refuse hauling.

The drums feature an alloy braking service and steel jacket technology and are rated to 26,000 lbs. per axle. They include a 3-year warranty and weigh between 100 and 111 lbs. each, depending on size.

“Stemco is committed to making the roadways safer, and we developed the CentriFuse HD brake drums based on extensive analysis of our customers’ trucking needs and applications,” explains Jim Reis, vice president, general manager-brake products. ‘The result is a product that provides an unmatched combination of weight savings, service life and stopping power for exceptional safety and reliability in severe service applications.”

CentriFuse HD brake drums are available in 16.5-in. by 7-, 8- and 8.62-in. sizes.

Note: Motor Wheel Commercial Vehicle Systems, the original manufacturer of CentriFuse brake drums, was acquired by Stemco (an EnPro Industries company) in 2012.
