Tyre pressure control systems protect vehicles and roads

Pressure control for HGV by Tireboss

TIREBOSS™ makes a range of Tyre Pressure Control Systems (TPCS) to keep vehicles riding smoothly

Canada-based TIREBOSS™ makes a range of systems designed to monitor and manage tyre pressures for HGV vehicles and applications. There are many benefits to keeping tyres at the optimal pressure, both for the vehicle and the environment they are driving in.

There are large environmental concerns circling around tyres that are affecting the industry at the moment. Tyre wear road particles (TWRP) – fragments of plastic below 5mm in diameter which are created when the surface of a tyre is abraded by contact with the road surface – have become a major talking point as the true environmental impact of these are measured. Poorly inflated tyres also damage the road surface, as the vehicle’s weight is improperly supported and distributed.

It is not just rubber that peels from the tyre during degradation – it is all the fragments, often plastic, that are added to the compound during construction. The particles left on the road evaporate and wash away into rivers and oceans and are considered to be a real concern to aquatic wildlife.

Monitoring the condition of tyres, particularly on HGVs, is therefore now of paramount concern. TIREBOSS™ offers the best TPCS to optimise and manage the tyre pressures throughout the haul cycles.

Benefits from using TIREBOSS TPCS

The TIREBOSS™ Tyre Pressure Control System (TPCS) is a computerised device, operated from the cab, that allows the driver to adjust tyre pressures while the vehicle is in motion. Each system can be programmed to suit your vehicle configuration and specific haul cycle requirements. All systems come with standard, built-in safety systems and continuous tyre pressure monitoring.

The TIREBOSS™ systems have a reputation for being extremely reliable and low cost to maintain and the systems are transferable from one vehicle to another, reducing additional capital expenditure each time the vehicle is replaced. It offers improved vehicle safety by balancing and maintaining tyre pressures, and by optimising traction and braking under all loading conditions.

Increased sidewall deflection improves rides noticeably, as well as reduces vibration-related damage to vehicle components and cargo. Less vibration is also evident to the driver, improving overall health benefits from reduced fatigue and fewer back related injuries.

Increased sidewall deflection and tyre contact area improves traction and mobility on soft terrain and low traction surfaces, which can prevent drivetrain damage caused by shock loading associated with wheel slippage. Improved mobility on soft or poor traction surfaces also will increase fuel efficiency, reduce cycle times, and reduce delays and truck damage associated with vehicle assists.

Tyre life is extended by always being at the correct optimised pressure on all road surfaces. Even greater tyre life is experienced through the reduction of tread face damage from road hazards in off highway applications.

Fuel economy is improved through the maintenance of tyre manufacturers’ recommended inflations both on- and off-highway.

The numerous benefits achievable from incorporating TIREBOSS™ in your fleets provides an invaluable tool that can increase productivity while at the same time saving the environment.
