Tiremaax CP tire inflation system debuts
Feb 1, 2008 12:00 PM
Hendrickson Trailer Suspension Systems introduces Tiremaax CP (Constant Pressure), a new configuration of its automatic tire inflation system for trailers.
With the launch of Tiremaax CP, the original Tiremaax name becomes Tiremaax EC (Electronic Control). Tiremaax CP features a simple mechanical design, while Tiremaax EC provides full system programming and monitoring. These patented systems draw from the trailer air supply to help keep trailer tires properly inflated and rolling smoothly.
Tiremaax CP continually checks tire pressure without pressurizing the axle or wheel ends and employs a pneumatic controller to direct air to tires that fall below a preset pressure level. A signal light illuminates only when attention is required to alert the operator of tire or system leaks.
With no electronics, transducers, or pressure switches, Tiremaax CP is easy to maintain. It requires no special tools to adjust tire pressure settings and operates on either 12- or 24-volt electrical systems.
All Tiremaax units feature bolt-in, ball-bearing rotary unions; braided stainless steel axle hoses; axle ventilation systems with patented axle filters, and seals designed to handle extreme temperature ranges. Braided stainless steel tire hoses, heavy-duty T-fittings, and steel T-fitting guards provide durability. To help prevent wheel-end contamination, Tiremaax uses internal supply lines without pressurizing the axle.
