Bridgestone Americas Inc. is expanding its portfolio of technology solutions with PressureStat, a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS).

According to the company, the TPMS targets off-the-road (OTR) tires in the construction, quarry, underground hard rock and port industries.

The PressureStat system provides instant access to tire pressure and temperature data, allowing customers to manage tire pressure on a real-time basis, the company says.

“At Bridgestone, we take pride in producing best-in-class products and delivering solutions-based technology to help our customers lower their total cost of ownership,” says Rob Seibert, director of marketing for commercial off-the-road tires at Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations. “We recognized an opportunity to expand our TPMS offering beyond giant radial tires to empower our OTR customers across our entire portfolio of products. With the PressureStat system, they not only can improve tire performance, but also increase jobsite safety and reduce unplanned downtime.”

According to the company, the PressureStat system facilitates tire asset monitoring and optimization with easy-to-install valve stem sensors; onboard alerts to the driver that make them aware of potential issues before they impact operations; Bluetooth connectivity that provides real-time pressure updates to mobile devices; inspection reports for the entire fleet available on desktop or mobile device with Bridgestone TreadStat Tire and Rim Management software; and streamlined forecasting and analysis when combined with TreadStat software.

The company adds PressureStat is user-friendly and competitively priced. Additionally, the TPMS is now available for purchase in the U.S. and Canada.
