Continental launches tyre-check system


ContinentalCommercial Specialty Tyres (CST) has recently launched its new Conti Pressure Check system to resolve the issue of low tyre-pressure.

Aiming to prolong tyre life, the unit can be mounted onto almost all types of industrial vehicles. Another advantage is that the system works with pneumatic tyres from all manufacturers.

Dr Michael Maertens, managing director of Continental CST said: “Regular maintenance checks on the tyre pressure are time-consuming and cost-intensive, and therefore often neglected – with serious consequences. With the introduction of ContiPressureCheck for specialty tyres, we offer our customers a cost-effective alternative for measuring the tyre pressure that also increases the efficiency and the safety of vehicle fleets in all industrial sectors.”

In contrast to other systems, ContiPressureCheck uses a sensor inside the tyre to continuously monitor the inflation pressure and tyre temperature – to prevent low-pressure of the tyre. The sensors and a communication and processing system are integrated into a module fitted with a rubber container to the inner surface of the tyre. In this way,it is claimed that more accurate results can be achieved than with comparable systems thatcollect data with sensors outside the tyre.
