Working Method: A drum brake works on that uses the Friction caused by a set of shoes or pads that press outwards against a rotating part called as the brake drum.
Working Method: It is a type of vehicle break employing the friction of pads against a disk that is attached to the wheel.
|2||Heat Dissipation: Poor heat dissipation
||Heat Dissipation: High heat dissipation|
|3||WEIGHT: Weight is more as it consists of many parts.||WEIGHT: Weight is less as it consists of fewer parts as compared to the drum braking system.|
|4||Self-Locking: A drum brake is self-locking.||Self-Locking: A disk brake is not self-locking.|
|5||Torque transmission time: torque Transmission time Is less in the case of the drum brake||Torque transmission Time: Torque transmission time is high in the case of the disk brake.|
|6||High-Temperature performance: At higher temperature it’s performance gets reduced||High-Temperature performance: At higher temperatures also it’s performance is normal.|
|7||Wear Of Friction Pads: Nonuniform wear due to curved friction lining||Wear Of Friction Pads: Uniform wear due to flat friction pads.|
|8||Anti-Fade Characteristic: Good anti-fade characteristic.||Anti-Fade Characteristic: Better anti-fade characteristic.|
|9||Maintenance Replacement of the friction pads is difficult and a time-consuming process.||Maintenance: Replacement of the friction pads is an easy and fast process.|
|10||INITIAL Cost:: Initial cost is low||INITIAL Cost: Initial cost is high.|
|11||Effectiveness& Safety: Drum brake is less effective and less safe as compared to the Disk brake.||Effectiveness & Safety: Disk brake is more effective and safe as compared to the Drum brake.|
|12||Application: Mostly the heavy-duty vehicles and normal vehicles have drum brake either at the rear or the front wheel and in some cases, both may have drum brake.||Application: Disk brakes are mostly used in high-speed vehicles and modern bikes mostly have disk breaks in them. Normal vehicles do have disk breaks.|
