PUMP UP PROFITABILITY
WITH AUTOMATIC TYRE
Anything that boosts uptime and reduces maintenance costs is good news for those operating within the waste and metal recycling industry and the PSI automatic tyre inflation system is doing just that with remarkable effect as recently reported by recycled metal haulage specialists, Greyroads of Oswestry.
One of their trailers picked up a vicious-looking 6-inch piece of metal which pierced one of the tyre walls. Despite being embedded some 4 inches into the wall, the PSI system fitted to the trailer maintained the correct operating pressure keeping it safely on the road.
Greyroads Director, Simon Yarwood reported that even though the £300 tyre had sustained significant damage, because PSI had kept it inflated for a further three and a half days after the puncture, it was possible for it to be repaired for just £45.
Simon went on to say; ‘The Tire Pilot system has provided us at Greyroads a return on investment within 12 months. The system has also saved us £1,000 minimum in maintenance per trailer each year after, this is without factoring in other costs to us such as roadside call out charges. The system also increases our uptime and allows us to repair or replace tyres at the end of the week rather than during working hours. Most importantly we are now a safer fleet with the risk of a blowout on one of our trailers significantly reduced’.

The PSI system maintains the correct tyre pressure on articulated trailers whilst stationary and on the move.
- Safer fleet as a result of reduced blow outs
- £1000 reduction on maintenance costs per trailer & a ROI within 12 months
- Increased uptime through postponed repair on leaking tyre
The PSI system has now been fitted to thousands of trailers across the UK and mainland Europe and has proven itself time and time again in substantially increasing trailer operating efficiency. The system constantly monitors each tyre on the trailer and will instantly re-inflate a tyre when it senses that it has lost pressure thereby maintaining the overall road safety of the vehicle. A warning light mounted on the trailer alerts the driver to the status of the trailer’s tyres.

“We have seen significant fuel benefits with the tyre inflation system fitted on our new trailers. On the same route form the UK to Germany we were seeing 10.4mpg on our trailers without PSI and with PSI we are now seeing 10.7mpg – these routres were at the same time of year, in the same conditions, carrying exactly the same weight’.. Steve also commented on the improvement he is seeing with regards to tyre wear, ‘On the trailers where we have PSI installed we have noticed that the wear of the tyre tread is much more even thus extending tyre life and reducing operational costs for us.”
Steve has been running PSI on his trailers for over a year and will continue to specify the system given the significant savings it is bringing for the fleet.
Heavy-duty Truck company
Maintenance Poids Lourds
Heavy-duty Truck company Maintenance Poids Lourds have recently equipped their fleet with the PSI system. The French company specializes in the repair and servicing of industrial vehicles, as well as the rental of trailers for harvesting beets. Clément Mazuret, the owner of Maintenance PL is a tyre professional and knows the importance of optimum pressure to make the best profit.
Clement commented “50% of my call-out’s on evenings and weekends are blowout’s due to underinflation, that’s why now I have equipped all of my rental trailers with the PSI system. My clients are up against tight deadlines and cannot afford to lose time on a blow-out. PSI provides them with a guarantee against this”
Director of Transports Boyer
Jerome Boyer, Director of ‘Transports Boyer’, and his workshop manager Cyril are unanimous on the benefits of the PSI automatic inflation system for their business. “We have seen a reduction in tire blow-out’s since we equipped our trailers with the PSI system. We have also seen an increase in the acceptance rate of our tire casings submitted for retread” explains Cyril. Jerome Boyer adds that for the past 4 years they have equipped all new vehicles without exception (Tippers and Tankers) with PSI.
