Correct tyre pressure in mining machinery improves tyre life, assists with fuel savings and the most important benefit – it protects the safety of mine staff. With the ever-increasing size of tyres used on mine sites, the importance of quick and reliable tyre inflation devices becomes a driving force of new design innovation for companies such as Haltec Corporation. Targets to minimize downtime, has led to the development of superior quality, precisely engineered valve systems, that fill every mining heavy equipment need.
Measuring the cost of downtime and the cost to service large off-the-road tyres, there is a need for faster, more accurate and efficient tyre inflation products in all industrial operations. By using Haltec’s Mega Bore Tyre Valve System, you receive a flow rate 25 times faster than standard large bore valves. Increases in flow rates saves inflation time and therefore saves your company money.
Safety is also at the forefront with accurate PSI the primary objective of proactive management of tyre pressures to prevent tyre failure. The risk is higher if a tyre is under-inflated or over-inflated without taking into consideration the correct pressure for the working temperature of the tyre. Temperature Compensating Tyre Inflator is engineered specially for inflating large mining tyres and this works with an in-line temperature sensor to inflate tyres that are constantly in service and always running hot. As part of the Haltec Automatic Tyre Inflator systems, this also allows for the worker to set the pressure and then remove themselves to a safe area while inflation is taking place.
