This system is an air operated and microprocessor controlled which has the capacity to replace the conventional coil spring suspension by providing automatic front and rear load leveling. With the help of a pressurized air bag, the load on each axle carries by an air ride suspension which much likes a high pressure balloon.
For almost few past years, air ride suspension systems have been in common use as well as it has been proven that it provides the smoothest and mock shock free ride of any known vehicle suspension system. The method we use in high strengths codes which are then encapsulated in rubber, by using the same method, modern air bags are constructed.
These have many advantages such as its units are very durable regarding its service as well as possess a proven life of many years. Along with an extremely smooth ride quality, it also provides other important features as well. In order to make the trailer always rides at the same height and suitable for lightly weighted as well as heavily weighted, the system automatically adjusts air pressure in the air bag.
With the help of this procedure, suspension system provides the maximum usable wheel travel independent of trailer load. Simultaneously the higher air bag pressure automatically provides a stiffer suspension which is sufficient for the requirement of a smooth ride as it is associated with the higher trailer loads.
For the purpose of lightly loaded conditions, a softer suspension provides by the lower air bag pressure. That’s why it provides the same ride quality for all trailer loading conditions. The air ride suspension is truly, fully independent suspension system as each axle is independently supported by its own air bag.
A solid state electronic control system which has been especially designed and packaged for the purpose of vehicle use, the automatic control of the air bag pressure is accomplished by it. In the case if the ride height is too low, this system continuously monitors the ride height of the trailer suspension as well as it increases air pressure by turning on and on board air compressor.
As soon as the proper ride height is reached, the air compressor stops working automatically, in addition to this, an automatic vent valves vents excess air pressure and stops venting at the moment the proper ride height is reached.
