WHAT IS A KLAM RETARDER

The KLAM retarder technology is based on the Foucault law (Eddy current brake) and its known braking effect. Basically, it is made up of a Stator with coils (fixed part) and two vented rotors (moving part).

When an electric current is applied to the stator, a magnetic field passes thru the spinning rotors to develop Eddy Currents. The faster the rotors spin the more power is generated.

 This force slows down the vehicle without any friction or wear, the energy is absorbed and dissipated in the atmosphere as heat by the rotors.

WHAT ARE THE KLAM RETARDER APPLICATIONS?
WHERE CAN YOU INSTALL THE KLAM RETARDER?

Driveline, Transmission and rear axle installation.

WHAT IS THE USEFUL LIFE OF A KLAM?

In general, the KLAM retarder runs at full capacity for 15-20 years without failure.

WHAT IS THE MAINTENANCE FREQUENCY?

These are non greasable units, no greasing required. Periodic visual inspection is recommended.
