Road Sweeper – No Downtime in Las Vegas!

12 May, 2014

GCR Tires & Service in Las Vegas, NV recently experienced great success using TyrFil for a Barber Road Rake. The Road Rake is a pull behind Road Sweeper. Before using TyrFil, the operator experienced many flats and lots of downtime, resulting in lost productivity. The Tires on the vehicle are size 235/85R/16. The tires were filled with TyrFil G2 and recycled material.  Once they stated filling the tires at the GCR location in Las  Vegas, the end user reports that all tire related issues have been eliminated.

Bernardo Renteria, Supply Tech III for District I DOT for the State of Nevada said, “Once we started using TyrFil for these tires, we have zero issues. This is the only way to go with these sweepers.” It has been so successful; they have been filling these tires for the past 8 to 10 years

Tech Tip – Safety First! Basic rules to follow

17 Sep, 2010

Follow safety regulations

Whenever you are foam filling a tire with Arnco Tire flatproofing products there are several safety regulations that should always be followed.

  1. Always wear safety goggles and chemically resistant gloves.
  2. The tire being filled should always be put into an approved tire safety cage.
  3. When filling a tire don’t turn your back on it for an extended period of time and never leave the pumping area while the pump is on.

Possibly the most important thing you need to remember is to make sure the tire itself is venting properly. If air is trapped in the tire then pressure can build rapidly causing the tire to rupture violently.  There are two ways to check if a tire is venting.

  1. The easiest is to hold your hand over the needle used to vent the tire during the final stages of the pumping process.  If you can feel air coming out of the needle then the tire is venting properly.
  2. The second way is to use the pressurization gauge.  If you are not sure that the air is being released.  Stop pumping and check gauge.  If there is no pressure buildup then you are ok.

If you cannot feel air venting or if there is a buildup of pressure use a drill to bore out the vent hole and check the vent needle itself for blockage.

Filling tires is not a “no-brainer process” and pressurizing a tire with Arnco is not the same as pressurizing a tire with air.  When pressurizing a tire with air, doubling the amount of air will double the pressure.  However, it may take only one stroke of the pump to produce 100 psi of liquid pressure in small tires.  The pumping system can create pressures higher than the burst pressure of many tires and wheel assemblies.  Extreme caution should be used when inflating tires with liquid or air.

Follow these rules to have a safe day at work.
