Eaton's decompression engine braking technology for medium- and heavy-duty diesel engines delivers high braking power and reduces the total cost of ownership (TCO) for truck owners.
Eaton offers rocker arm-based 1 stroke, 1.5 stroke, and 2 stroke systems for overhead cam and cam in block engine architectures.
The compression release engine brake provides several advantages to the commercial vehicle truck owner:
- Reduces brake and tire wear
- Avoids overheating and fading of primary brakes
- Reduces or eliminates the need for a driveline retarder
