TPMS OTR Solutions For Heavy Machinery

Keeping the correct tire pressure and monitoring temperature and pressure changes is crucial for the heavy machinery used in mining operations.

Tires used in mining are exposed to heavyweights, extreme forces, high temperatures, rough terrains, and many other variables that put your tires to the test. 

If tires are not inflated to the correct pressure, they can cause shifts in the machinery’s weight and exert more force on other wheels. This causes imbalances in the way the weight is distributed throughout the tires, which will cause them to fade faster than intended, not to mention that a shift in weight in certain terrain types or vehicle positions could also mean the risk of rollover.

Being able to sense tire pressure and temperature allows your maintenance team to be on the ready. FleetMetriks TPMS OTR solution provides you with alerts in real-time, this means that the tires will remain less time in an unfavorable condition, and you don’t have to wait until it is too late to make a correction. This also means that you will preserve the useful life of your tires as intended by the manufacturer. 

With FleetMetriks TPMS OTR reports, you can see the historical data of pressures and temperatures of each individual tire, giving you powerful insights on what changes can be made to adjust your operating conditions and even compare manufacturers.

Needless to say, with the current supply chain issues, we are finding tires harder and harder to replace. Anything you can do to extend the life of your tires will keep replacement costs low and more time on the field for your vehicles to get the job done.
