BPW: AirSave tire pressure control

BPW Bergische Achsen is presenting the AirSave system at the transport logistic 2019 trade fair in Munich. This is a tire pressure control system. The correct tire pressure is an important factor for fuel consumption. More in the video.

Driving a truck without flat tires

BPW originally comes from the running gear manufacturing sector. At transport logistic, BPW is presenting the new AirSave tire pressure control system. A traditional freight forwarder has one main interest: The vehicle must roll. If the tire loses air, you have a flat tire - which is of course unfavourable. With AirSave, BPW's aim is to keep the vehicle on the road for as long as possible.

How the AirSave tire pressure regulation system works

The tire pressure control system is connected to the trailer's compressed air tank. This allows a constant pressure to be applied to the system. You can modify the pre-settings to the tire pressure in bar that you want for your journey. The pressure is then measured constantly and as soon as the tire pressure changes, it is continuously pumped up. The special feature is that this process not only happens automatically, but is also continuously visible via the telematics system.

The right tire pressure pays off

Of course, such a system costs money. Is it really worth investing in a tire pressure regulation system? If you compare the additional investment with the savings, the result naturally depends on the mileage, but it is quite clear. Overall, the AirSave system pays for itself after just one year.
