The Brake Caliper Refurbishment and Recycling Process: Helping the Environment

It is a commonly known fact the re-manufacture/recycling process of commercial brake calipers is environmentally green, so the whole process from start to finish is designed specifically to reduce waste and recycle as efficiently as possible.

Caliper Refurbishment Step 1

It is a commonly known fact the remanufacture/recycling process of commercial brake calipers is environmentally green, so the whole process from start to finish is designed specifically to reduce waste and recycle as efficiently as possible.  

Commercial Brake Tech’s brake caliper refurbishment process starts with a full unit strip down; separating the consumable parts, consisting of seals, bolts, bushes, and bearings. These items are then disposed of, and the metal items are sent for recycling. Analysis from the brake caliper strip down process is then officially documented and describes in detail why the unit has failed. The brake caliper carcass is then put through the cleaning processes before drying and checked for any defects and residual dirt.

Step 2

Once passed, it is then put through the blasting cycle to remove all rust and paint and to give a high-spec finish ready for the next stage. It is then checked for a final time before all bores and threads are protected and sent for spraying using a special heat-resistant rust-preventative paint. All threads are tapped out and cleaned ready to be paired up with its new consumable parts ready for the production team.

Step 3

Fully trained build technicians undertake the build process of the brake caliper rebuilding, using O.E equivalent repair kits and the correct grade of bolts. All bolts are inserted using the correct compound of thread lock and tightened to OE specifications. Brake calipers with wear sensors are tested using O.E specification equipment and finally signed off by the production supervisor before being stamp coded for traceability and sent to the packing room to then be placed on to stock or dispatched.

Our philosophy is to ensure that the recycling and refurbishment of all our commercial brake calipers are carried out in the most efficient way possible to help the environment.
