The air brake system is one of system used for accurate operation in trains. Air compressors mounted every two to four coaches supply compressed air to the air brakes. The air, which is compressed to nearly 8 Kg/sq cm, is piped below coach floors to main air reservoirs. The air pressure is lowered to 5 Kg/sq cm which pressure regulated and air is fed via the brake valve, brake pipes, and control valves to auxiliary air reservoirs. If the compressed air in the pipes and auxiliary air reservoirs of coach is at 5Kg sq cm, brakes are not activated. The activated brake valve cuts the flow of air from pressure regulated and air pressure in the brake pipes falls. The fall in air pressure is detected by the control valves on each coach.
