Eco Air Compact


BPW’s ECO Air COMPACT, designed for 9 tonne on-road applications, is suitable for both drum and disc braked axles. Furthermore, special attention has been paid during the development of this completely new running gear system to ensure that both trailer assembly and the operation of the running gear is economical: there are fewer air suspension components to provide a robust, low maintenance system.

The suspension is of a modular bolted design, enabling the replacement of individual running gear components, if required, whilst the two-piece, cast trailing arm uses a diagonally bolted connection to the axle beam to provide load transfer and stability.

ECO Air COMPACT also features a new steel-rubber pivot bush of asymmetric design, without voids, to ensure optimum axial and vertical alignment. Not only does this contribute to increased driving comfort and reduced tyre wear, but also the specially designed pivot bush helps even force absorption and stress distribution, thus contributing to smooth operation and long service life.

All metal surfaces on BPW running gear, including the steel hanger brackets on the ECO Air COMPACT, are treated with zinc phosphate KTL process to protect against corrosion.
