Hot weather is tough on tires. Asphalt retains and radiates heat which compounds the problem of heat build-up which occurs with issues like wheel bearing problems, or stuck brakes. The belts inside a tire can separate from the rubber at around 200°, creating a safety issue for unsuspecting drivers and those in their vicinity.
The Doran tire-monitoring system monitors tire pressure and temperatures on all connected tires, then alerts drivers when tire temperatures reach 175°. If a tire reaches that temperature, the driver will receive a visual and audible warning on the in-cab display which then allows them to find a safe place to pull over and lets their tires cool off and avoid a catastrophic event.
Doran tire monitoring systems are available for all size and type fleets – from owner-operators to international fleets, including truck/trailers, ready mix/concrete, dump/construction, delivery vehicles, waste and recycling, haz-mat, auto haulers, first responders, people transportation, bulk materials handling, and more.
Doran also provides multiple options for fleet managers and equipment maintenance teams to receive real-time tire alerts as well. Monitoring and continually reporting tire pressures and temperatures allows fleets to schedule repairs and corrections to reduce tire related maintenance costs, extend tread life, protect casings, and minimize catastrophic tire failures.
External, valve stem mounted sensors pass tire pressure and temperature data to the in-cab monitor/display, providing drivers with real-time information and alerts. With the patented Green Means Good at-a-glance indicator, drivers can easily identify if there’s an issue with one of their tires. Doran 360 tire-monitoring systems include visual and audible alerts for low inflation pressure, rapid deflation events and high tire temperatures.
Maintaining proper tire inflation pressure maximizes the performance of the tire, leading to reduced downtime while improving safety and efficiency. Designed to handle the extreme environmental conditions found on roadways across the nation, Doran tire monitoring systems account for heat, vibration, and the longevity needed for performance on the open road.
