New updated sensor seals have been added to Advantage PressurePro tire pressure monitoring (TPMS) systems, the company announced.
The systems, distributed in North America by L&S Safety Solutions, now feature a 2-piece valve seal system. The first piece is a hard plastic depressor that rests on a surface just below the threads. This depressor has been designed to the optimum length to more fully depress the valve and provides a hard stop during installation, preventing over tightening of the sensor against the rubber sealing surface; thus preventing damage to the seal, the company said.
A simple rubber O-ring is pushed into place over the plastic depressor which fits snugly in place and can endure repeated loosening and installation of the sensor.
“In the continuous search to improve our products, PressurePro is pleased to announce the development of our new sensor seal,” said Douglas McMeen, PressurePro’s director of technology. “In conjunction with partners EEA Engineering out of Australia, we have utilized new technology to review the stresses put upon the seal in a vast array of environments and have made enhancements to the seal accordingly to ensure that PressurePro customers continue to have the most reliable, durable and accurate TPMS product available.”
