Inflation Pressure Procedure

During tire inflation:

  • Keep a safe distance, always use a safety cage, if possible anchored to the wall and/or the floor, or with retaining chains.
  • If no cage is available, the fitter must ensure that no part of his body is in the possible trajectory of the valve mechanism or the caps during inflation. (See the shaded area shown in figures 1,2,3).
  • Do not leave equipment on the sidewall of the tire laid flat.
  • The use of suitable pressure limitation gauges is recommended.
  • Use a filter and dehumidifier (or drier) on the compressed air line in order to avoid the entry of humidity/dirt.

Step 1
Step 2
Step 3

  • Max inflation pressure
    - 1.5 bar for tires with tire diameter 15" or less.
    - 1.0 bar for all other tires.
    - For wheels with BLS (tire lock) separate instructions must be followed?
  • Ensure that the beads are correctly positioned on the bead seat. If not, deflate the tire and centre it on the rim.

Do not exceed the recommended maximum fitting pressure during inflation.
In case of doubt or any difficulty, contact a specialist.

  • Inflation up to maximum bead seating pressure with a safety device (blast cage or distance filling).

  • It is important to inflate the tire to the maximum. bead seating pressure. This is to ensure the proper fit of the tire against the rim.
  • If the beads are not correctly seated it is necessary to deflate, lubricate and inflate again. Repeat these operations until the beads are correctly seated.

  • After inflating up to maximum bead seating pressure, the pressure must be adjusted to appropriate shipment or service pressure before removal from the safety device.
  • Adjustment to service pressure with a safety device (safety cage or distance filling).
  • In cases in which service pressure is higher than:
    - 4 bar for a tyre with 5 bar - bead seating pressure.
    - 3 bar for a tyre with 3.5 bar - bead seating pressure.
    - 2 bar for tyre with 2.5 bar - bead seating pressure.

    The tire must firstly be inflated to a pressure 20% higher than the service air pressure and then adjusted to service pressure.
