Hendrickson Trailer Suspension Systems has introduced TireMaax CP (Constant Pressure), a new configuration of its popular automatic tire inflation system for trailers. With the launch of TireMaax CP, the original TireMaax
name becomes TireMaax EC (Electronic Control). TireMaax CP features a simple mechanical design, while TireMaax EC provides full system programming and monitoring. The patented TireMaax systems draw from the trailer air supply to help keep trailer tires properly inflated and rolling smoothly.
TireMaax CP continually checks tire pressure without pressurizing the axle or wheel ends and employs a pneumatic controller to direct air to tires that fall below a preset pressure level. A signal light illuminates only when attention is required to alert the operator of tire or system leaks.
With robust components and no electronics, transducers or pressure switches, TireMaax CP is easy to maintain. The versatile CP requires no special tools to adjust tire pressure settings and operates on either 12- or 24-volt electrical systems.
