Heavy Goods Vehicle Inspection: Hand Operated Brake Control Valves Mobile App
The primary purpose of the Heavy Goods Vehicle Inspection: Hand Operated Brake Control Valves
How does it work?
mobile app is to support staff in conducting the annual testing of vehicles. The app is useful to those responsible for the maintenance of large commercial vehicles so that they remain well informed on the current minimum legal standards for roadworthiness. It must be emphasised that these are minimum acceptable standards, which do not necessarily allow for further deterioration when the vehicle is in service.
This examination applies to all hand operated valves on vehicles which operate secondary brakes, trailer brakes, spring brakes and lock actuators. It also applies to trailers fitted with hand operated spring brake valves. Certain air valves are subject to a slight amount of leakage and this is not a reason for failure.
