Introduction

• Identify the brake components. The MT5300D AC truck brake system is fully hydraulic similar to the larger 700
series off-highway trucks. The wheel stations are from the 795F AC truck but the
control valves are from the former Unit Rig trucks.

The brake system consists of the following components:

• Hydraulic tank
• Steering pump
• Front and rear wet parking brakes
• Front and rear wet service brakes
• Slack adjusters
• Three service brakes accumulators

Caterpillar: Confidential Yellow


SERV2010 - 10/14 -9- Module 7 - Brake System
Hydraulic oil is drawn from the tank on the left side of the truck into the steering
pump assembly. The steering pump is a piston type pump with a moveable
swashplate that is controlled in a pressure compensating mode. In this
configuration, the pump stroke is controlled from zero to maximum displacement
per revolution to provide a flow sufficient to maintain constant pressure of
approximately 24,130 kPa (3,500 psi) in the system accumulators. The output of
the pump is routed through a high pressure oil filter and steering manifold.

Oil passes from the steering manifold to the brake manifold and on to the three
brake accumulators. The brake manifold splits to the separate front and rear brake
accumulators, which supply their respective brake systems. The third is the brake
supply accumulator. This accumulator is first in line to receive oil flow and supplies
oil pressure to the parking brake pressure reducing valve and the parking brake
solenoid. Steering pump pressure needs to be reduced to 4688 ± 483 kPa
(680 ± 70 psi).

The front and rear service brakes are wet type brakes, which are hydraulically
engaged and released by spring force. The parking brakes consist of wet brakes in
the wheel assemblies are spring engaged and hydraulically released.

The service brakes are not used to slow or stop the truck at speeds above
5 kilometers (3 mph). All speed reduction is done by electric retarding which is the
first half of the combination retarding and service brake pedal. The second half of
this pedal uses a single section adjustable pressure reducing valve located below
the floor of the operators station. Depending on how far the pedal is depressed
determines the amount of oil pressure being directed to the dual brake valve, then
to the front and rear slack adjustors, and finally to the service brake piston inside
each wheel station.

• Combination retarding and service brake valve (1)
-- This is the single section pressure reducing valve to control the pressure to
the service brakes.
• Front brake accumulator (2)
-- Located next to the hydraulic tank and the steering system accumulators,
stores pressured oil for the brake hydraulic system.
• Rear Brake Accumulator (3)
-- Located behind the operator’s station, stores pressurized oil for the rear
service brakes.
• Supply Brake Accumulator (4)
-- Located next to the rear brake accumulator, maintains system pressure to
the brake control pilot valve and the dual brake valve.
• Brake manifold (5)
-- Located in the hydraulics cabinet, routes oil from the steering pump to the
brake hydraulic system components.

Caterpillar: Confidential Yellow


SERV2010 - 10/14 -14- Module 7 - Brake System

• Dual brake valve (6)


-- Located in the hydraulics cabinet, directs oil from the brake manifold to the
front and rear brakes. The dual brake valve is activated when the brake
control valve, the load brake solenoid, or the proportional auto apply brake
valve are actuated.
• Proportional auto apply brake valve (7)
-- Monitors the pressure in the supply system (accumulators) and causes
automatic brake application if the pressure decreases to less than the
preset level.

Front and rear Brakes

• Identify the front brakes. The front (1) and rear brake housings use wet plates and discs for the parking and
service brakes. The service brakes are hydraulically applied and the parking brakes
are spring applied.

Each housing has a brake wear indicator that is used to indicate the amount of
wear of the plates and discs.

To cool the front brakes, return oil from the radiator fan and the blower motors
is directed each housing and then returned to the hydraulic tank. A temperature
sensor is placed in the outlet line of each housing to indicate if the brakes are
within the proper temperature range.

To cool the rear brakes, return oil from the brake valve is directed to the hydraulic
oil cooler located on the inside of the right frame near the engine. After the oil is
cooled, it is directed to each housing and then returned to the hydraulic tank. A
temperature sensor is placed in the outlet line of each housing to indicate if the
brakes are within the proper temperature range.

Brake Actuation System

• Identify the brake actuation Shown is a cutaway illustration of an oil cooled brake assembly. The brakes are
system. environmentally sealed and adjustment free. Oil continually flows through the brake
discs for cooling through the cooling in port (1) and cooling out port (2). Duo-Cone
seals prevent the cooling oil from leaking to the ground or leaking into the axle
housing. The wheel bearing adjustment must be maintained to keep the Duo-Cone
seals from leaking.

The smaller piston (3) is used to engage the parking (secondary) brakes. The
parking brakes are spring engaged and hydraulically released. The larger piston (4)
is used to engage the service brakes. The larger piston is also used for retarding.
The service brakes are hydraulically engaged. Activation of the service brakes is
controlled with the dual brake valve. Activation of the parking brakes is controlled
by the parking brake solenoid valve.

The friction discs and steel plates (5) are compressed together by the pistons
to slow or stop the truck. The actuating springs are used to engage the parking
brakes.

rear Slack Adjuster

• Identify the rear slack adjuster. The MT5300D AC truck has two slack adjusters. The rear slack adjuster (arrow) is
located above the rear axle housing.

The slack adjusters compensate for brake disc wear by allowing a small volume of
oil to flow through the slack adjuster and remain between the slack adjuster and the
brake piston under low pressure. The slack adjusters maintain a slight pressure on
the brake piston at all times.

Brake cooling oil pressure maintains a small clearance between the brake discs.

Brake Slack Adjuster

• Identify the brake slack adjuster. This illustration shows sectional views of the slack adjuster when the brakes are
RELEASED and ENGAGED.

When the brakes are ENGAGED (1), oil from the brake/chassis valve (2) enters
the slack adjuster and the two large pistons move outward. Each large piston
(3) supplies oil to one wheel brake (4). The large pistons pressurize the oil to the
service brake pistons and ENGAGE the brakes.

Normally, the service brakes are FULLY ENGAGED before the large pistons in the
slack adjuster reach the end of their stroke. As the brake discs wear, the service
brake piston will travel farther to FULLY ENGAGE the brakes. When the service
brake piston travels farther, the large piston in the slack adjuster moves farther out
and contacts the end cover. The pressure in the slack adjuster increases until the
small piston (5) moves and allows makeup oil from the brake / chassis valve to flow
to the service brake piston.

When the brakes are RELEASED (6), the springs in the service brakes push the
service brake pistons away from the brake discs. The oil from the service brake
pistons pushes the large pistons in the slack adjuster to the center of the slack
adjuster. Makeup oil that was used to ENGAGE the brakes is replenished at the
dual brake valve (hand valve).

Oil for the brake system is supplied from the brake port of the steering manifold
(16). Oil flows through the check valve into the brake manifold (19), to the parking
brake solenoid valve (21) via the parking brake pressure reducing valve, and to
the supply brake accumulator (3). The oil then passes through to the upper and
lower check valves. The oil passing through the upper check valve charges the
rear brake accumulator (4). Oil is also supplied to the upper section of the brake
accumulator drain valve (15) and to the left side of the dual brake valve (14). Oil
passing through the lower check valve goes to the load brake solenoid (22), the
right side of the dual brake valve, and the brake control pilot valve (13).

Since the parking brake solenoid valve isn’t energized, the front and rear parking
brakes are engaged.

In the event of residual pressure remaining in the brake control circuitry when the
service brakes are fully released, the front and rear brake drag pressure switches
(10 and 6) will provide an illuminate indicator lamps on the cab dash.

Brake Hydraulic System - service Brakes Applied

• Identify the brake hydraulic This image shows a schematic of the brake hydraulic system with the service
system - service brakes applied. brakes applied by the foot pedal and the parking brakes released.

Just before the truck begins to move, the operator moves the shift control lever
out of park and energizes the parking brake solenoid valve (21). Since the system
pressure oil is much higher than needed to release the parking brakes, oil pressure
is reduced by the parking brake pressure reducing valve (24). This oil passes
through the parking brake solenoid valve to compress the numerous springs
that hold the wet plates and discs together in each brake housing. Remember:
Parking brakes are spring engaged and hydraulically released. Service brakes are
hydraulically engaged and spring released.

When the operator applies the brake control pilot valve (13), a proportional amount
of oil flows through the valve to the auto apply shuttle (12), moving the check ball
up. This allows oil to pass through the valve to the right side of the dual brake valve
(14) and to the loading brake shuttle (11), moving the check ball to the right. With
the check ball to the right, oil can then flow to the left side of the dual brake valve.
Oil pressure on the top side of the dual brake valve moves the both valves down
proportionally, allowing oil from the each valve to flow to the front and rear slack
adjustors (29 and 7) then to the front and rear service brakes (9 and 8).

released.

The load brakes are used by the operator when loading the truck or dumping the
load from the truck. The operator engages the load brake switch in the operator
compartment. The load brake solenoid valve is energized and oil flows to the load
brake shuttle (11). The check ball in the shuttle moves to the left and directs oil to
the left side of the dual brake valve (14). Oil pressure on top of the dual brake valve
moves that section down, directing oil to the rear service brakes (8).

The load brake feature is designed only to keep the truck from moving during
loading and unloading. It is not a parking brake, and the operator should not leave
the cab with only the load brake applied.

Brake Hydraulic System - Auto Apply Brake

• Identify the brake hydraulic This image shows a schematic of the brake hydraulic system with the service
system - auto apply brake. brakes applied by the auto apply brake valve (5) and the proportional auto apply
brake valve (2). The parking brakes released.

When the Brake ECM senses a need to apply the brakes (supply pressure
decreases to a predetermined pressure), the ECM sends a signal to the auto apply
brake valve. Oil flows through the auto apply valve to the reducing valve (1) and
the proportional auto apply brake valve . Oil then flows to the auto apply shuttle
(12), moving the check ball down to allow the oil to flow to the loading brake shuttle
(11) and to the right side of the dual brake valve (14). The check ball in the loading
brake shuttle moves to the right, allowing oil to flow to the left side of the dual
brake valve. Oil pressure on the top of the dual brake valve moves the valve down,
allowing oil to apply the front and rear service brakes (9 and 8).

This situation causes the brake control valve to provide maximum system pressure
to the caliper assemblies, stopping the truck. This application is not modulated,and
should be used in emergency situations only.

Brake Cooling

• Identify the brake cooling. This illustration shows a schematic of the brake cooling system during normal
operation. Oil from the outlet port (4) on the brake valve flows into the cooler (3)
and continues to the two rear brake housings (1). As the oil travels through the
housings, heat is acquired and the oil is directed to the hydraulic tank.

Oil to the two front brake housings (2) doesn’t have a separate cooler. Return oil
from the radiator fan motor (5) and the blower motor (6) is used to cool the brakes.
The combined volume of oil from both motors don’t acquire very much heat and
can provide enough cooling for the brakes.

The front brake housings have a common bypass check valve (7) that opens at
approximately 138 kpa (20) psi.

Each brake housing has a temperature sensor (8) that monitors the oil flow
temperature and sends its signal to the Brake ECM. These temperatures can be
viewed on the Advisor screen or with ET.
