Advantage PressurePro is offering a new valve seal solution on its tire pressure monitoring system.
Called the Sensor Seal, developed in conjunction with partners EEA Engineering out of Australia, it was developed based on new technology that allowed the company to review the stresses put upon the seal in a vast array of environments.
PressurePro’s new valve seal solution uses a 2-piece valve seal system. The first piece is a hard plastic depressor that rests on a surface just below the threads. This new plastic 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.
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.
