wheel cylinder

The wheel cylinder, also called the brake cylinder or slave cylinder, is a cylinder
in which movable piston(s) convert hydraulic fluid pressure into mechanical force.
The piston(s) within the cylinder move the brake shoes or pads against the
braking surface of the drum or rotor. There is one cylinder (or more in some systems)
for each wheel. The cylinder is usually made up of a single-bore cylinder
casting, an internal compression spring, two pistons, two rubber cups or seals,
two rubber boots to prevent entry of dirt and water, and a bleeder screw (valve).
In drum type brakes, the wheel cylinder is fitted with push rods that extend
from the outer side of each piston through a rubber boot, where they bear against
the toe end of each brake shoe. In disc brakes, the wheel cylinder is part of
the caliper. As the brake pedal is depressed, it moves pistons within the master
cylinder, forcing hydraulic brake fluid through the brake lines and into cylinders
at each wheel. The fluid under pressure causes the wheel cylinders' pistons
to move, which forces the shoes or pads against the brake drums or rotors. Two-way
pressure is applied when the wheel cylinder is activated. Brake fluid enters
the center of the cylinder, forcing the pistons apart. Pushrods at the piston ends
then apply equal pressure to the brake shoes. A return spring pulls the pistons
together when pressure is released.
