Underinflated tyres are one of the biggest cost traps in freight transport. Poorly inflated tyres cause:
- up to 4 % more diesel consumption
- 85 % of all total tyre failures
- more than half of all breakdown service calls
- 10 % of all cases of premature material wear
The savings potential of Fliegl trailers with Tyre Inflate System(TIS) is correspondingly high. The tyre inflation module works automatically and effectively: it permanently monitors the tyre pressure and inflates automatically when required.
- Lower fuel consumption
- Lower diesel costs
- Longer tyre life
- Less downtime due to punctures
Example: With a pressure loss of 0.5 bar, a combination drives with about 875 litres more fuel and about 1200 Euros in unnecessary operating costs per 100,000 kilometres of mileage.
The TIS is available for all Fliegl trailers - depending on the respective axle configuration - and can be retrofitted without any problems. The tool optimises operating cost management with a plus in economy, value retention and safety.
