Voith Retarders

Retarder - Bus

Not just the brake is in action when trucks and busses come to a stop: When retarders by Voith are used, up to 90% of all braking operations can be achieved without any wear. Your brake is always available when the situation gets dicey. The benefits are numerous: More comfort, reduced wear, less time spent in the shop, higher average speeds, and increased transport capabilities. And the environment is happy, having to deal with up to 80% less brake dust. Arrive alive!
 

From 7.5 to 250 tons - Voith has the right retarder for all your trucks and buses. See for yourself.

 
Offline Retarder

Voith Offline Retarders (peak-period retarder) work with a translation. In other words, the retarder speed is higher than the drive shaft. Offline retarders are very compact and exhibit great braking force even at low speeds.

 
Inline Retarder

Voith inline retarders are installed directly onto the transmission or freely to the driveline. They are connected to the vehicle universal joint shaft.

Offline

Operating principle

Simple, reliable, effective:
This is how the Voith Retarder works

Two blade wheels in the hydrodynamic Retarder face each other. The rotor is connected to the prop shaft of the vehicle via the Retarder input shaft, the stator to the stationary housing of the Retarder. In braking mode, there is oil between the blade wheels. The oil is accelerated by the rotor and decelerated in the stator. This also decelerates the rotor, thus braking the vehicle. The heat generated by the brakes is quickly and effectively dissipated via the vehicle cooling system - without having a negative influence on surrounding components.
