TYRE SOLUTION FOR SEVERE APPLICATIONS

16 July, 2014

When it comes to working in severe applications such as waste management, tyre damage is an occupational hazard that, if not well managed can result in productivity losses and expensive down time.

When it comes to working in severe applications such as waste management, tyre damage is an occupational hazard that, if not well managed can result in productivity losses and expensive down time. 

Enter the innovative Apexway Solid OTR Tyre, specially crafted for industrial vehicles which operate in hazardous environments such as scrap yards, slag steel mills, glass works, dumping sites, and waste sites. These large tyres are designed using specialised rubber compounds to handle the abrasiveness and exposure to cutting whilst being able to dissipate the heat caused by high loading and continuous operation.

Apexway Solid Tyre products operate throughout NZ in a variety of demanding applications, offering customers an excellent cost per hour solution with none of the downtime commonly associated with air filled tyres. While tyre life varies accordingly to the severity of the application, it is not unusual to achieve a tyre life in excess of 50% better than that achieved by air filled tyres. Vehicles with air filled operating in severe conditions often encounter problems such as air leakage, tread damage and even blowouts due to abnormal punctures, cutting & piercing. These issues consequently lead to downtime and extra maintenance. When these situations occur, repair and maintenance not only becomes costly but can result in a machine out of service.

Apexway Solid OTR tyres have been designed to solve these issues. With application-driven designs and product features including low level heat elastic tread rubber; enhanced friction fabric-blended base rubber and unique cushion aperture allocation, Apexway tyres hold a specialist niche in severe application tyres.

A recent example is Smart Environmental who were commissioning a new Manitou Telehandler for their waste and recycling site in Coromandel. TRS were able to design & supply a solid tyre solution that was a direct replacement for the standard 460/70R24 tyres. “These Apexway solids have been a tremendous replacement option due to their robust make up which is ideal given the aggressive working conditions the machine operates in. We are very pleased with the tyre performance so far” said Jason Harvey, Site Manager at Smart Environmental.

Apexway solid rubber tyres are manufactured in a wide range of specialist sizes to fit a wide range of construction equipment. Common fitment applications include wheel loaders, skid steer loaders and telehandlers.
