Voith Aquatarder SWR

Braking better with water:

The new secondary water retarder

 
Safe, economical and sustainable - that's the first secondary retarder in the world that uses water for braking. Like the Aquatarder, the secondary water retarder also uses the engine's cooling water as its operating medium. With this, it carries out up to 90% of all vehicle braking operations.
Experience it for yourself: In the new Mercedes Benz Travego Edition 1 and in the new Setra ComfortClass 500.
 

The facts speak for themselves

The secondary water retarder occupies 50% less installation space than its predecessor, and it is 35 kg lighter. Since it uses the engine's own coolant as its operating medium, it is also completely maintenance-free: no additional oil or coolant changes and no adjustments are necessary. And the environment is happy to have as much as 80% less brake dust.
