A tire puncture while on the road could mean a late arrival or, worst, a customer lost.
With Vigia on board, only the driver will know of a tire problem, not your passengers. The Vigia system automatically and without having to stop will reinflate the damaged tire so everybody can continue on their trip.
The hidden cost of running tires with improper air pressure can really hurt a fleet over time.
Improper inflation accounts for 80% of retread separations, cuts, bruises, flats and blowouts.
For every 1 PSI of underinflation there is a 0.8% increase in fuel consumption.
Underinflation of 5 PSI reduces tire life by 25%
Even without punctures, tires lose two pounds of pressure a month just by air permeating the inner liner. Air also escapes between the bead and wheel, tire valves and valve cores.
Only 22% of drivers check pressure before each trip, and only 37% of those use a pressure gauge.
Down time and expenses for tire repairs are estimated at $450 per occurrence.
SAFETY AND ECONOMY
VIGIA works by controlling the pressure for all tires on all axles. Should tire pressure drop, the system draws air from one of the vehicle's air tanks (not from other tires) and feeds it to the proper tire or tires. In the event of an extreme air loss, such as a blow-out, the system's safety valve will shut off all air flow.
With more than 35,000 systems in use around the world, Vigia stands ready to handle the most strenuous demands in the toughest environments, again and again.
