SAF TIRE PILOT Technology

The SAF TIRE PILOT tire inflation system automatically ensures the set minimum pressure on all tires of the trailer. This extends the service life of the tires, saves fuel costs and avoids complete failures.

Too low tire pressure and creeping pressure loss in the case of unnoticed run-in damage: In 80 percent of all cases, these are the causes of tire failures and increased fuel costs. The SAF-HOLLAND tire inflation system effectively counteracts these possible impairments: It continuously monitors tire pressure and always keeps it at an optimal level, even while driving or after run-in damage.  

The SAF TIRE PILOT, available for rigid and steer axles, is connected to the trailer's compressed air supply. The control unit independently takes over the inflation of damaged or underinflated tires. The system ensures the ideal pressure at all times, thus preventing punctures and minimizing the risk of trailer failure. It also reduces tire wear and operating costs.
