Tractor Tire Repair System with the Vulcaflex Control System offers the most advanced method of curing Truck and Tractor tire section repairs on one system to the professional tire repairman. The system uses an outside flat airbag, an outside and inside thermocouple heatpad and an inflatable cylinder airbag to accomplish distortion free repairs on radial, bias and low profile tires.
The cylinder bags are lightweight, durable and easy to position in the tire. The system adjusts perfectly to the contour of the tire for distortion-free repairs of radial, bias ply, low profile, wide base and skidder or tractor tires.
Ratchets provide maximum tensioning with minimum force. High test abrasion resistant webbing guarantees maximum strength.
Independent Digital Temperature Read-Outs on the main control screen allow the operator to see both inside and outside Heatpad temperatures and amperage at a glance. Thermocouples in the pads automatically control temperatures ensuring simple, trouble free operation.
Vulcaflex® Tire Repair Systems controls are designed for ease of operation and maximum safety due to the programming and logic of the built in PLC. Even heat and pressure inside and out is monitored and displayed. Patch and Plug are cured at the same time.
The basic Truck Tire Repair System includes a special L-shaped Heatpad that conforms to the shoulder of the tire to be repaired. This pad is contoured for the shoulder of the tire thus giving long-lasting, reliable service.
Vulcaflex® Heatpads are generally more rugged and last longer than those made by others.
The Vulcaflex® System is relatively light and compact. As a result it can easily be moved to various different locations to perform repairs. Operation is simple. Experienced tire repair people will produce excellent, distortion free, lasting repairs.
