Locomotive Brake Cylinders
Locomotive Brake Cylinders

The North American Standard for Diesel-Electric Locomotives

Furnished to suit the space and leverage requirements of locomotives, these cylinders differ from freight car brake cylinders primarily due to the wide variety of diameters available and shorter piston strokes.

  • The push rod is pinned to the piston hollow rod for positive release of the shoe from the wheel when the piston retracts
  • Wide variety of sizes and push rod configurations available to suit varied application requirements
