Every pneumatic tire needs a means for inflating, deflating, and gauging. The tire valve serves this purpose well if its functional characteristics match those of any given application.
This paper highlights essential valve basics, briefly indicates the different characteristics of passenger and truck valves, and suggests minimum guidelines for proper valve selection.
Ever increasing tire sizes and operating costs demand faster inflation and deflation times. The new super large bore valves for off-highway vehicles meet these requirements.
An understanding of the valve's interrelationship with the rim, wheel and tire assembly will enable the designer to apply the safest and most cost effective valve.
