AGEING OF BRAKE FLUIDS; EFFECT ON SAFETY AND DETERMINATION OF NECESSARY INTERVALS BETWEEN CHANGING OF BRAKE FLUIDS

UNTERSUCHUNG DER ALTERUNG VON BREMSFLUESSIGKEITEN, EINFLUSS DER VERKEHRSSICHERHEIT, ERMITTLUNG DER NOTWENDIGEN INTERVALLE BEIM WECHSEL DER BREMSFLUESSIGKEITEN

THE AGEING OF BRAKE FLUIDS IN ASSOCIATION WITH HIGH PERFORMANCE BRAKING SYSTEMS IS A SIGNIFICANT FACTOR IN SAFETY ON THE ROAD. OPINIONS ON THE SIGNIFICANCE OF BRAKE FLUID AGEING DIFFER, HOWEVER, IN INDUSTRY. THE OBJECT OF THE WORK WAS TO GAIN A COMPLETE PICTURE OF THESE DIFFERENT OPINIONS. A STUDY WAS MADE OF THE LITERATURE AND INDUSTRY, AND INDIVIDUAL TESTS EVALUATED WITH A VIEW TO ESTABLISHING REQUIRED INTERVALS BETWEEN THE CHANGING OF BRAKE FLUIDS. ON THE BASIS OF SAFETY AND COSTS, REGULAR BRAKE FLUID CHANGE WAS PREFERRED TO OTHER METHODS CONSIDERED INITIALLY.
