Can Electric Over Hydraulic Brake Actuator Be Fully Submerged


Im working on a trailer project and theres a requirement that the entire braking system be completely submerged in several ways to test its workability. Do you know if the titan electric hydraulic systems can hold up to being fully submerged? I know they are supposed to be water resistant. I wouldnt mind other recommendations in manufacturers of this type of device. Thanks

I spoke with my contact at Titan about the BrakeRite II # T4813102. He confirmed that they do not recommend completely submerging the BrakeRite.

I also spoke with Dexter Axle to see if their Electric Over Hydraulic Brake Actuators, # K71-651, can be submerged. They confirmed that their actuators are not designed to be fully submerged.

Though also not recommended to be submerged, the most likely contender to hold up to being fully submerged is the Hydrastar Marine Grade Electric Over Hydraulic Actuator. These actuators come in 1,000 psi # HS381-8065, 1,200 psi # HS381-8066, and 1,600 psi # HS381-8067.
