Brakemaster® air dryers

The SKF Brakemaster® line of air dryers includes styles specifically designed to handle the extreme air system demands for various vocations such as transit, refuse and off road vehicles to mention a few. From light duty Turbo-AC to the state of the art Dual Turbo-2000 series of air dryers now featuring the new H.C. (High Capacity) Dual Turbo-2000 designed for the standard 2010 transit engine/compressor package.

Turbo-AC

Turbo-AC
Ideal for light to medium air compressor duty cycles, the Turbo-AC features near-maintenance-free aftercooler technology to cool and dry the air.

Turbo-2000

Turbo-2000
Perfect for severe stop and go operations. The Turbo-2000 features a large purge volume and excellent filtration system that deliver clean, dry air under the toughest conditions. Upgrade filtration capability further with the Filtration Plus option. Use with turbo boosted compressors.

HD-2000

HD-2000
Provides same performance as the Turbo-2000 but for use with naturally aspirated or discharge line unload (DLU) compressors. Upgrade filtration capability further with the Filtration Plus option.

Dual Turbo-2000

Dual Turbo-2000
Two styles of Dual Turbo-2000 with maximum performance meet extreme demands with maximum performance. Original Dual Turbo-2000 is designed for hard working compressors with long duty cycles. An internal timer alternates air flow through desiccant cartridges.

H.C. (high capacity) Dual Turbo-2000

Designed to meet the specific and difficult air quality demands found in high volume applications, the H.C. Dual Turbo-2000 is available in 12V 75W (6.6 amps) and 24V 75W (3.2 amps) options; and is an ideal choice for large compressor output applications. It can withstand compressor air flow output of up to 80 scfm and up to 40 percent compressor duty cycle – the standard Dual Turbo-2000 withstands up to 40 scfm and 100 percent compressor duty cycle. 

Because the filtration feature is key to efficient air supply, the H.C. Dual Turbo-2000 is designed with the same internal filtration package as the standard Dual Turbo-2000 air dryer with 99.9 percent efficiency. It meets the 2010 EPA requirements for high output compressors on transit buses. The H.C. Turbo-2000 also meets the 2010 transit bus high output engine/compressor package requirements.

Turbo-3000

Turbo-3000
The compact Turbo-3000, engineered for light duty applications, precisely matches desiccant and purge volume to reduce size and weight. No purge tank is needed.

Filtration Plus option

The SKF Filtration Plus option is a two-stage high efficiency filter that removes even the finest oil residue. The Plus Option specifically addresses high air volume applications, such as transit, refuse or cement mixers. The SKF Filtration Plus Option can be installed in SKF’s Turbo-2000 series, including the HD-2000. It is standard on the Dual Turbo-2000.
