Original Press Release:
Integral Height Control and Dump Valve Improves Trailer Performance, Reduces Maintenance
CANTON, Ohio - Hendrickson Trailer Suspension Systems unveils an integral height control valve (HCV) and automatic dump valve to help maintain outstanding load stability over the road and facilitate loading dock activity.
Specifically designed and tested for optimum performance with Hendrickson air-ride suspensions, the integrated unit features a high-flow design for rapid dump and fill times to save the drivers time and effort as they load, unload and get back on the road.
Triggered by the trailer parking brake, the valve automatically discharges with the setting of the brake and begins air up of springs with release of the brake.
For improved trailer maintenance, this HCV eliminates the need for an add-on dump valve, reduces plumbing and presents fewer potential leak points.
The integrated valve features the same long-life and low air consumption as a standard Hendrickson HCV and comes in kits that include 3/8-inch tube fittings and bolted linkage. The integrated HCV replaces the add-on dump valve and HCV combination.
