Alcoa Wheels has introduced its new forged aluminum dual valve wheel to address the increased demand for the installation of tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS) for fleets. The new dual valve wheel is being displayed for the first time this week at the American Trucking Association’s (ATA) Technology & Maintenance Council’s (TMC) Fall Meeting.
According to the company, with a second valve stem, the TPMS sensor can operate on one valve while air pressure is serviced on the other, and no disruption due to equipment removal during airing up or maintenance means added peace of mind and optimum efficiency.
This latest product release is proving a successful collaboration between trucking customers and industry experts, such as Doran Manufacturing and the team at Alcoa Wheels who took on an opportunity to provide a longed-for solution that responded to a well-known industry need.
Valve stem mounted TPMS sensors like those provided by Doran Manufacturing are offering fleets the opportunity to invest in a new solution that will drive efficiencies.
