Aircraft Tire Gauge

 
Keeping aircraft tires at their correct inflation pressure is the most important factor in any preventive maintenance program.

The problems caused by incorrect inflation can be severe. Overinflation can cause uneven treadwear, reduce traction, make the tread more susceptible to cutting and increase stress on aircraft wheels. Underinflation produces uneven tire wear and greatly increases stress and flex heating in the tire, which shortens tire life and can lead to tire blowouts.

Thousands of airplane tires are inflated during routine maintenance each day around the world. On occasion, a mechanic or other ground service employee has been severely or fatally injured in an explosion caused by use of unregulated pressure from an air or nitrogen tank.

It is essential for maintenance personnel to always use a regulator or aircraft tire gauge when inflating any wheel/tire assembly. Most of the reported accidents involved nose wheels. This may be related to the fact that the wheels did not include an OPR valve and that nose wheels generally are small, which means they contain a smaller volume of air or nitrogen. Inflation without a regulator will rapidly produce pressures in the wheel that are significantly beyond the capabilities of the wheel. As a result, the wheel or wheel tie bolts fracture into pieces that can severely injure the person servicing the tire or damage adjacent equipment.

Having reliable equipment means a safer operation. Calibration Specialty is a specialist in the sales and service of Aircraft Tire Gauges. Here are just a few of the aircraft tire gauge products available at Calibration Specialty.
