An innovative solution for rigid dump trucks and Defence Truck, which transports crushed aggregates and mineral ores, is Roto L & SG. It is fitted on the axle of the rigid dump truck and a sensor-based system will continuously check the tire pressure of the truck while in motion (both in loaded and empty condition). Real time monitoring of tire pressure will not only help in reducing fuel consumption but also to re-pressurize the tires as and when needed for safety during operation.
The Turcon® Roto L seal is the first ever active seal and is engineered to extend seal life on axle systems. Uniquely, it only seals when sealing is required. This reduces friction to lower fuel consumption and there by conserves energy. It is engineered to extend the lifetime of Central Tire Inflation Systems by lowering friction.
The new sealing principle combines known and required functionalities into one component. Through an intelligent combination of materials and design, it is even possible to decisively improve known areas of conflict.
The company has also introduced the Nexus metal face seal for vehicles working with very fast duty cycles, like excavators. The Nexus metal face seal has a heavy chrome casting which completely prevents contamination of the hydraulic system. The seal can be used in gearboxes, transmission systems, and also in the PTO system in machines like concrete transit mixers, for preventing dust and dirt.
