Recommendations for usage
The Kloft/Pentar Retarder can be
used for all types of braking processes regardless of the speed
of the vehicle. In emergency situations in which speed must be
reduced suddenly and when the vehicle stops at zero speed (for
example at traffic lights) the vehicle service brakes must be
manual control do not forget to place the lever in the “zero”
position as soon as the vehicle has come to a halt, to avoid
unnecessary waste of battery power.
roads we recommend combining the use of the engine brake, gear
reduction and retarder in such a way as to adapt the vehicle
speed to the type of road. On very tight bends it may be
necessary to use the service brakes as well.
If the vehicle is stopped
immediately after a prolonged decent when the retarder is hot
the flow of cooling air is reduced to zero. Although the Kloft/Pentar
retarder is able to withstand the considerable Material stress
produced in these circumstances it is advisable to gradually
reduce the retarder power over the last 3-4 miles before
bringing the vehicle to a complete halt so that it has time to
cool down before stopping.
