The leader in brake maintenance

Over time, a workshop device must become better than the products it's used on. For Werner Rogg, owner and construction manager at Werkstattgeraete-Spezialisten Romess (Romess Workshop Tool Specialists), the matter is self-explanatory: “On the basis of our longstanding collaboration experience with reputable automobile manufacturers, we have developed our brake maintenance devices on an ongoing basis.”elt."

Here, Romess relies exclusively on simply but cleverly designed electro-hydraulic systems. As first supplier, the company established in Schwenningen offered products equipped with this technology - which is superior to that used in compressed air systems. A service technician can operate it without any problems: change brake fluid without assistance from a colleague, ventilate the brake system and hydraulic coupling, check the low pressure area for impermeability, and test the ease of operation of the brake cylinders.

There is another benefit, possibly more important than a whole series of benefits in operation: Malfunctions, such as those encountered using compressed air tools. The best example of this high technological standard is the model S 30-60, which is used in sophisticated workshops to economically fill and ventilate all hydraulic couplings on trucks, cars and motorcycles. It was specially designed for workshops that perform a large number of brake fluid changes on a daily basis, and thus seek to streamline these operations. That the S 30-60 contains know-how accumulated over many years is evident to the operator with every touch. And so, the need to transfer brake fluid is eliminated. It can stay in the original container in which it was delivered, which can hold 30 to 60 liters. The operator simply has to slide this container into the device.

“That's an important advantage that facilitates the task considerably,” Werner Rogg finds.  But the design engineers at Romess have placed great value on easy handling in another respect: Two fixed castors and two swivel castors make it significantly easier to transport the S 30-60 about the workshop.

After switching on the electrically driven pump, the pressure - which can be infinitely adjusted from 0.5 to 3.5 bar - is gradually built up. The advantage here is that the brake fluid does not flow through too quickly and foam up. It is pumped into the hydraulic system by means of an adapter in the storage tank. Since the liquid flow pulsates, vibrations are generated. These, in turn, make it possible to vent the brake pipes completely. This is of especial importance for the functional reliability of ABS braking systems.

Convenient: If the container for the liquid has been emptied up to 1.5 liters, the pump automatically switches off so that neither air nor any mixture of air and liquid is ever permitted to penetrate the hydraulic system. However, the residual amount left in the container is not “lost”: when the barrel is exchanged, it can be pumped into the new barrel using a bypass switch.

Alongside functionality, Romess makes cost effectiveness a top priority. Thus, Rogg and Co. have developed the perfect solution, one that can also be applied in workshops where brake fluid changes come up less often: the SE 14 and the S 15, the S 30-60's “little brothers.”  Both are drivable, sturdy, compact and economical. For example, the S 15 holds 19 liters of brake fluid, which means that three five-liter jerrycans can be refilled for each. A 3.5 meter-long filling hose lets you use the S 15 to ventilate a vehicle's braking system on any lifting platform. The economic success of this division speaks for itself: Up to the present, Romess has manufactured and sold 70,000 brake maintenance devices worldwide.
