The tyre pressure monitoring system.
"We were experiencing low tyre pressures and punctures on a relatively frequent basis but weren’t always aware of where, when or how they were happening, sometimes, we didn’t know that there was a problem brewing until we did our weekly tyre checks on a Saturday. The ContiPressureCheckTM system has eliminated that doubt. "
Paul Broker | Fleet Engineering Director | G.Webb
Prior to fitting Continental’s ContiPressureCheck, Kane Group struggled to maximise the working life of its tyres. Damage was common and tyres were being removed from service prematurely. “Tyres, or more specifically dealing with tyre failures, is an expensive cost to the business and it’s an outgoing that traditionally has been hard to control,” Jordan admits. “In this line of work, it’s very easy to run an under-pressure tyre, but ContiPressureCheck has undoubtedly helped to remedy this issue.”
Transport Manager, Jordan Kane, Kane Group
“We fit CPC sensors to all our tyres, so the Yard Reader Station works across every vehicle we run, and results have been very accurate from day one. Based on tyre life and the impact on safety and fleet performance, it’s an investment delivering worthwhile returns.”
“The biggest gain is the prevention of cost and elimination of downtime."
Andrew Smith, Director, Smith of Denny
“We spotted tyres that had very low-grade pressure losses and so were able to remove and repair them before they got any worse. Before the arrival of ContiPressureCheck™, these would have simply deteriorated further and may have resulted in blow-outs and complete loss of the tyres. Blow-outs can cost more than simply replacing the tyres, with body and light damage always a possibility, and far, far worse, injuries or even fatalities among drivers and other road users.”
Neil McPhilips, Fleet Manager, Brampton Skips
“ContiPressureCheck gives the driver the assurance that his tyres are at the correct pressure and alerts him to any potential problem, such as a slow loss of pressure that could lead to a complete tyre failure.
Because you get an early warning of a problem this enables prompt action to be taken and this may avoid the cost and inconvenience involved in having a tyre breakdown.”
