Tyres are the only connect between the vehicle and the terrain hence ensuring that tyres are reliable, safe, performance worthy any time and every time, is critical specially for severe duty applications such as construction, industrial plant, mining, recycling, scrap handling etc. Besides, as tyres represent the highest operating cost after fuel, understanding tyre related global best practices & emerging concepts is essential.
Trident offers contemporary puncture-proof tyres and technologies that reduce total cost of ownership (TCO) and cost per hour (CPH).
Semi-solid industrial tyres
These are developed specifically to address the problems of frequent punctures and fast wear encountered by industrial vehicles/equipment used in demanding service environments and difficult underfoot conditions.
These semi-solid tyres are airless, thus puncture-proof, have an extra deep tread for long, uninterrupted service, with specially designed side wall apertures to provide shock absorption and ride comfort.
These are available in a range of patterns to suit various operating conditions and supplied as ready-to-fit tyre and wheel assemblies for easy replacement.
Product features and benefits include: Puncture-proof; zero downtime; high safety – no danger from blow outs; and long life – 4-5 times that of pneumatic tyres.
Semi-solid tyres are suitable for industrial equipment with a maximum operating speed of 25 km/hr such as: Port equipment such as RTGs, reach stackers, empty container forklifts, etc; aerial work platforms, backhoe loaders, skid steer loaders, telehandlers and wheel loaders.
PU foam-filled tyres
Tyre filling is a process in which a pneumatic tyre is injected and pressurised with a special two-component urethane polymer in a precise proportion using a special metering pump. The polyurethane cures into a soft, resilient, synthetic rubber core replacing the air in the tyre. The resultant filled tyre is thus rendered puncture-proof and maintains the required pressure throughout its service life. PU filled tyres have a full footprint and are capable of carrying their rated load at all times.
The soft core is designed to provide a ride similar to air-filled pneumatic tyres.
