ADVANTAGES OF TELMA RETARDERS

Telma means savings!

During so-called service braking, the energy to be dissipated to slow down or stop a vehicle with a conventional braking system is so important that the components of the braking system, including the brake linings, undergo significant heating, which accelerates wear.

Telma retarders ensure the vehicle's braking needs. Vehicles equipped with a Telma retarder can multiply the lifespan of their service braking system up to ten times: maintenance costs are therefore greatly reduced and operational availability is increased.

* Stabilizing speed through the service brakes raises their temperature and exponentially increases brake wear.
Using a TELMA retarder keeps brake wear to a minimum rate.

The exceptional reactivity of Telma retarders prevents excessive fuel consumption during fast switches between deceleration and acceleration phases. Telma retarders never go against the engine: they can instantly stop producing braking torque upon driver's request.

The recognized quality, reliability and durability of Telma retarders make them a profitable investment that quickly pays for itself and, by extending the vehicle's braking ability, they increase the average operational speed.
