What is the structure, purpose and function of the brake hose?
Posted by Admin | 14 Mar
Automobile brake hose (commonly known as brake pipe) is a component used in automobile braking system. Its main function is to transmit braking medium in automobile braking to ensure that braking force is transmitted to automobile brake shoes or brake calipers. The braking force is generated so that the braking is effective at all times.
Brake hose, a flexible conduit other than a pipe joint in a brake system used to transmit or store hydraulic pressure, air pressure or vacuum for applying force to an automobile brake; a brake hose fitted with a brake hose joint. Brake hoses are available with or without jacket.
In a general brake system, the lines usually appear near the master cylinder and the wheels. But these two kinds of pipes are different: several black pipes extending from the brake master cylinder, these pipes are made of metal, the metal has no elasticity, and will not expand due to the increase of the pressure of the liquid, ensuring the braking force. transfer. However, at the end of the pipeline, that is, near the wheel, a hose has to be used, because the suspension of the vehicle is always moving relative to the body during driving. At present, the brake hose used in many cars is still made of rubber. The outer casing is covered with a steel wire braided tube, which can improve the high pressure resistance. In my opinion, "motor vehicle brake hoses" are not normally used in the main components of the brake system such as brakes or brake master cylinders.
