BUS AIR BRAKE CHECKS

 You must check the air brakes on your bus before you operate out of the yard.
 Do not operate a bus if it fails one or more of the air brake checks.
 Report any failed test to the garage Foreperson and Transit Control/C.I.S.
Low air warning and automatic spring brake test
To test the low air warning devices (light and buzzer) and automatic spring brake application:
1. Make sure that:






Engine is running;
Spring brake is applied;
Transmission is in Neutral;
Air pressure is above 90 psi (621 kPa);
Low air warning devices are not activated.

2. Make and hold a full service brake application.
3. Release spring brake.
4. Watch air pressure gauge and depress and release (fan) the brake pedal to lower air
pressure.
5. Observe air pressure when low air light and buzzer come on.
6. Check that spring brake automatically applies.
If the pressure is at or above 55 psi (380 kPa) when the device activates, and the
spring brake automatically applies, your bus is safe to operate.
If the pressure is below 55 psi (380 kPa) and the device fails to activate, or the
spring brake fails to automatically apply, your bus must not be operated.
If OK, proceed to next test.

BUS AIR BRAKE CHECKS…cont.
Air pressure build up test
To test the air pressure build up:
1. Make sure that:






Engine is running;
Spring brake is applied;
Transmission is in Neutral;
Air pressure is below 80 psi (552 kPa);
Engine idle speed is 600 – 900 RPM (high idle switch off).

2. Watch air pressure gauge, and start timing when air pressure reaches 85 psi (587 kPa).
3. Stop timing when air pressure reaches 100 psi (690 kPa).
4. How long did it take to build up to 100 psi (690 kPa)?
If the air pressure took 2 minutes or less to build up, your bus is safe to operate.
If air pressure took more than 2 minutes to build up, your bus must not be operated.
If OK, proceed to next test.

Air compressor governor settings test
Before testing the air pressure governor settings, make sure that:
 Engine is running;
 Spring brake is applied;
 Transmission is in Neutral.
Follow procedures A and B to check cut-out and cut-in pressure.
A. Governor cut-out settings:
To check when the governor is set to cut-out:
1. Watch the primary and secondary air gauges.
2. Run engine until air brake pressure reaches its maximum level. At this level, needle stops
moving upwards and you may hear exhaust cycle of air dryer.
If the cut-out air pressure setting is between 100 – 135 psi (690 – 932 kPa), your
bus is safe to operate.
If the cut-out air pressure setting is higher than 135 psi (932 kPa) or lower than
100 psi (690 kPa), you bus must not be operated.

B. Governor cut-in settings:
To check when the governor is set to cut-in:
1. Watch primary and secondary air gauges.
2. Depress and release (fan) brake pedal until air pressure is reduced approximately 20 – 25
psi (138 – 173 kPa) below the cut-out point and then stop.
If needle begins to move upward, cut-in point has been reached.
If needle does not move, continue to reduce air pressure each time by approximately 5 psi
(35 kPa).
Stop each time and check for needle movement.
If the cut-in air pressure is 80 psi (552 kPa) or higher, your bus is safe to operate.
If the cut-in air pressure is lower than 80 psi (552 kPa), your bus must not be
operated.
If OK, proceed to next test.
Air loss rate test
To test air rate loss:
1. Make sure that:
 Engine is running;
 Spring and service brake are applied;
 Transmission is in Neutral.
2. Release spring brake.
3. Make sure air pressure is in normal range for bus.
4. Turn off engine.
5. Make and hold a full service brake application.
6. Watch primary and secondary air gauges and wait for needles to stabilize.
7. When needle stabilizes, note air pressure.
8. Watch needle for one more minute, and note change in air pressure.
9. Reapply the spring brake.

10. Restart the engine.
If the drop in air pressure is 3 psi (21 kPa) or less, your bus is safe to operate.
If the drop in air pressure is more than 3 psi (21 kPa), your bus must not be
operated.
If OK, proceed to next test.
Spring brake test
To test the spring brake:
1. Make sure that:





Engine is running;
Spring brake is applied;
Transmission is in Neutral;
Air pressure is in normal operating range for bus.

2. Make a full service brake application.
3. Place transmission selector in Drive.
4. Release service brake.
5. Press gently on accelerator. The bus may rock slightly.
6. Take your foot of the accelerator.
7. Place transmission selector in Neutral.
If the wheels do not turn, your bus is safe to operate.
If the wheels turn, your bus is not safe to operate.

If OK, proceed to next test.

Service brake test
To test the service brake:
1. Make sure that:





Engine is running;
Spring brake is applied;
Transmission is in Neutral;
Air pressure is in normal operating range for bus.

2. Make a full service brake application.
3. Release spring brake.
4. Place transmission selector in Drive.
5. Press gently on accelerator. Do not exceed posted yard/garage speeds.
6. Make a firm service brake application, and bring the bus to a complete stop.
7. Reapply spring brake.
8. Place transmission selector in Neutral.
If the bus stops smoothly and does not pull to the left or right, your bus is safe to
operate.
If the bus does not stop smoothly or pulls to the left or right, your bus must not be
operated.
If OK, proceed to next test.
Interlock test
To test the interlock:
1. Make sure that:





Engine is running;
Spring brake is applied;
Transmission is in Neutral;
Air pressure is in normal operating range for bus.

2. Make a full service brake application.
3. Release spring brake.
4. Place transmission selector in Drive.
5. Open rear doors using centre entrance switch.

6. Press on accelerator. If the bus moves or engine speed increases, immediately make a
full service brake application.
7. Reapply the spring brake.
8. Place transmission selector in Neutral.
9. Close rear doors using centre entrance switch.
If the bus does not move and there is no increase in engine speed, your bus is
safe to operate.
If the bus moves or engine speed increases, your bus must not be operated.

Your bus must pass all 7 of these tests to be placed in service.
