Michelin Auto Inflate is a wheel-mounted tire management solution that allows fleets to automatically maintain optimal tire pressure. The system, powered by Halo in association with Aperia Technologies, can save fleets an estimated $2400 per tractor-tire annually by reducing tire-related downtime events, extending tire life, improving fuel economy and increasing safety. The device can be retrofit on existing vehicles or incorporated as an add-on to new equipment. It works with both duals and wide-base single tires. The compact, self-powered pump can be mounted to the hub in 10 minutes using standard tools. With each wheel rotation, the device monitors and adjusts for low air pressure. For more information, visit www.michelintruck.com/autoinflate.
