Robust

The interior bellows and the cataphoretic dip-coating of the brake caliper ensure ideal conditions for long brake life.

Thanks to the innovative Compact Design in combination with the BPW ECO principle, it is no longer necessary to remove the brake caliper during a disc change. This saves up to 3 h per vehicle of garage time compared to conventional systems.

Easy to service

Thanks to the innovative Compact Design in combination with the BPW ECO principle, it is no longer necessary to remove the brake caliper during a disc change. This saves up to 3 h per vehicle of garage time compared to conventional systems.

Due to the Compact Design, the brake is directly connected to the axle beam and fully integrated into the system, making it one of the lightest brakes on the market.

Features and benefits

  • Quick and easy brake service through smart detailed solutions
  • Effective heat dissipation by proven BPW flanged disc concept
  • Low weight thanks to lightweight construction
  • Optimally coordinated friction pairings (pads/brake disc)
  • Special BPW disc alloy for high resistance to wear and cracking
  • Reduced stock-keeping because the same brake discs are used for 0 and 120 offset
  • Symmetrical wear throughout the entire brake pad service life
  • Increased disc surface area for optimum heat dissipation
  • Sensitive response, good controllability and minimal thermal fading

Product details

Thanks to the ECO principle: quick and easy brake disc change without dismantling the brake calliperBPW’s ECO Disc is the trailer disc brake that is truly worthy of its name. From the very start, BPW engineers have ensured all the running gear components are perfectly coordinated without any cutbacks. The ECO Disc thus offers you a whole range of benefits that pay off in terms of more loading possibilities, quicker brake service and a high-quality, long-life trailer disc brake.
 

39 kg lighter thanks to Compact Design

ECO Disc makes each axle up to 13 kg lighter. In a tri-axle unit, this adds up to 39 kg. This is an enormous weight reduction that was made possible by the innovative BPW Compact Design. BPW succeeded in connecting the brake directly to the axle beam and integrating it fully into the system. The advantages are obvious: fewer interfaces and much lower weight. And all this with the same level of stability. How do you benefit? Greater efficiency with a higher payload. ECO Disc – the best demonstration that quite simply proves that less is more.
 

Extremely straightforward maintenance thanks to our attention to detailExtremely straightforward maintenance thanks to our attention to detail

The innovative Compact Design of the ECO Disc not only reduces the axle weight, it also makes it superfluous to remove the brake caliper during a disc change. A clever solution which, in conjunction with the tried and tested ECO principle, saves you valuable time. The ECO principle makes it possible to install the hub bearing unit in Formula 1 style. Due to the ease of access to the resetter, it is possible to renew the brake linings and disc in record time. In short:  ECO Disc reduces down time, maintenance costs and installation complexity when servicing brakes.

 

Extremely robust thanks to interior seals Extremely robust thanks to interior seals 

We have exposed the ECO Disc to the most extreme conditions in worldwide field trials. The trailer disc brake merely shrugged off icy weather in the Arctic Circle as well as the dust and red hot heat of the Australian outback. This is due in part to the innovative interior BPW bellows. They are more effectively protected against thermal and mechanical damage, thereby preventing the ingress of dirt and moisture into the interior of the brake – which they do very efficiently. We have also added additional seals for the guide pins in order to keep the brake caliper bearings fully protected against external influences. And that's not all: ECO Disc brake calipers have cataphoretic dip-coating. All in all, these amount to the best prerequisites for a long brake life.
