Brake Proportioning Valve / Brake Combination Valve

PR300 & PR320 Series

A brake proportioning valve is a device that helps maintain proper braking balance. It prevents the brakes from locking up by distributing braking force evenly to all wheels. This is especially important when stopping on slippery surfaces, as it helps prevent skidding. The brake proportioning valve also allows for different levels of braking force to be applied to the front and rear brakes, depending on the weight distribution of the vehicle. This is important because the heavier the weight at the front of the vehicle, the more braking force is needed to stop it.
