DERRIMUT, Australia — Meritor Australia continues to expand its product offering for the aftermarket with the introduction of its Meritor red range which now includes two new red brake chambers MBC2430 (Size 2430, 2.5” stroke) and MBC3030 (Size 3030, 2.5” stroke).

The two new chambers are finished in a distinctive red powder coat which was chosen by the braking leader to differentiate new offerings in what is a crowded market with often dubious quality levels. The Meritor red paint (Meritor’s signature bull logo is also red) does also indicate that the product has passed Meritor’s product approval process. In the case of these two new brake chambers that included testing to meet the North American SAE standards.

Beneath the surface the chambers are equipped to handle tough applications. The heavy-duty internal construction and housings minimizes vibration and fatigue while the spring brakes are sealed at the rear for operator safety. The powder-coated steel end caps and a corrosion protected inner spring also offer enhanced durability and extended life.

Installation and removal are also easy with the inclusion of mounting hardware, clevis, and a release tool. The new red chambers also come with Meritor’s one-year, unlimited kilometer warranty and are available in the two most popular sizes.  With more offerings still under development, these new red chambers are expected to provide a robust solution to meet the demands of many applications. 

“The launch of the red brake chambers marks another milestone in our ongoing mission to bring new products to the Australian, New Zealand and ASEAN Truck and Trailer aftermarket to meet the unique customer expectations and demands within our industry,” said Patrick Jose, product manager, Meritor Australia.

“We are continuing to expand this portfolio which will see more products bearing the distinctive signature red color coming to our market. When customers see the Meritor red, they can be confident they are purchasing an aftermarket product which will live up to their expectations of quality and reliability in what are some of the toughest trucking conditions in the world.”
