Pressure control system for agricultural tyres
Switching between field and transport work
The tyre inflation system allows you to always maximise the potential of your tyres. You can drive on roads with high pressure and decrease it once you enter the field, increasing the contact surface and offering better protection to the soil. This system is mainly appealing for large self-driving harvesting machines, fertilisers and heavy tractors and trailers that perform a lot of combined field and transport work.
Overview of your savings
In the field, the tyre inflation system reduces fuel consumption by 7% to 10% (source: Stichting SVOB). On the road, fuel savings are determined by the situation: with only a tractor, you save 5%; with more equipment you save 12% and with a trailer you save 17%. In addition, the tyre inflation system helps to reduce tyre wear & tear by 30%. Of course, you also save time and the reduction in soil compaction helps to improve your yield by a few percent.
In short: a great investment.
