Evaluation prototypes and design specifications for Wheelpump's Loewe on-wheel pump are available to automobile manufacturers and component OEMs. Featuring improved safety, increased mileage, and optimized tire performance, the on-wheel pump design can be integrated into typical passenger-car wheels. As the vehicle is driven under normal usage, the pump maintains proper tire pressure. Unlike the tire-pressure monitoring systems (TPMS) that are federally mandated on all new light-passenger vehicles in the U.S., the Loewe on-wheel pump actually compensates for the under-inflation that a TPMS only warns drivers about. Loewe on-wheel pumps are cost-effective and reliable, contain no batteries or other electronics that demand careful handling or on-going maintenance, and require no changes to tire construction or mounting.
