A few applications and case studies.
Forestry is a dangerous and tough business with harvesting, forwarding, skidding (dragging), and loading of heavy logs onto trucks over very rough terrain is harsh on machinery and particularly hard on tyres. Log forwarder and skidder machines use special industrial tyres to carry heavy logs, and at about $5000 each ($40,000 per machine), the cost of destroying tyres adds up quickly. Jock Haris from High Country Logging in NSW says, “Tyres on these Log Forwarding machines are worth protecting. Sharp Stumps, logs or branches jam into a tyre and break the bead, then it’ll go flat without the operators realising it. Running them flat can destroy a good tyre in no time, once you split the sidewall, the tyre is buggered”. So, to prevent destroying these expensive tyres, Jock has installed LSM Technologies Tyre Monitoring Systems (TMSystems) on his Forwarder machines. The TMSystem will detect a low tyre pressure and alert the Operator via the In-Cab Display and help prevent further damaging the tyre. This gives the Operator a chance to check the tyre and reinflated on site so as not to damage the sidewall. The Operators are also using the TMSystems to check tyre pressure as part of the Pre-start routine and perform regular checks during operation. “Since being fitted about 2 months ago, the LSM Technologies TMSystems have already saved us at least $10,000 in tyres” Jock said and "That’s a good investment in anyone’s book!". Jock mentioned, that from now on he’ll be getting any new Tigercat Forwarder machines fitted with LSM Technologies- TMSystems from new. For more information, please see our:

LSM Technologies are proud to be part of the Public Transport for NSW (TfNSW) safety initiatives to mitigate Bus Fires emanating from the Wheel Well. As reported in previously related news articles (see below), TfNSW are continuing to roll out upto 3,000 LSM Technologies TMSystems Technology on Buses. In addition, LSM Technologies have been instrumental in assisting NfNSW to develop their new TMSystems Standard - BC17/18562 on Buses. In addition, TfNSW have also develop Standards for the installation and use of Fire Suppression Systems for Engine related Fires. However, whilst Fire Suppression Systems are an essential mitigation control- the technology is reactive- after a fire has started. TMSystems are a proactive technology that prevents a potential Wheel / Tyre Fire by monitoring the Tyre / Rim Temperature and warning the Operator- before a fire starts. In addition, TMSystems provides additional Safety and Cost- down benefits with:
The recent incident that caused a Chemical Truck / Tanker to burn to the ground on the Brisbane / Gold Coast M1 (4th August 2017) could have been mitigated / averted if a qualified fit- for- purpose Tyre Monitoring System was utilised- see ABC news article. The incident is still under investigation, however the reported cause of the fire was from the Tyre Wheel Well of the Truck / Tanker Tyres as a result of Locked Brakes. The image of the fire's progress (from the Trailer / Truck Rear Drive Wheels) validates that the fire did not start from the Truck Engine The tyre fire caused massive and expensive loss of an asset, traffic flow restrictions, business interruption, extensive use of emergency services, etc and could have potentially caused other catastrophic consequences / ramifications. LSM Technologies Tyre Pressure / Temperature Monitoring (TMS) would have alerted the driver if the Wheel Rim / Tyre temperature if it exceeded 80 degC and combined with our FSMTM Fleet Safety Management System GPS / GSM Telemetry Tracking / Web Based System would have also alerted the Drivers Despatch. As we have provided in other LSM related news articles, many heavy industrial industries and OH&S Authorities / Regulators have already changed their Tyre Management Guidelines / Standards to include TMSystems. Even Internationally (USA, Japan, Korea, EU), TMSystem have been mandated / legislated TMSystem for the Passenger and Light Truck.. Tyres are a critical vehicular components that provide optimisation (correctly inflated) Braking, Tracking, Stabilisation and Control. With no more than a hand print of contact area / tyre to carry the extensive loading and speed that these vehicles operate, the proper care and management of tyres can not be understated. This incident (one of so many), once again highlights the requirements for TMSystem Technology to be mandated / legislated by Road Authorities / Regulators for our On and Off Road Transport so as to enhance safety on the roads for Drivers and the Public.

CICA (Crane Industry Council of Australia) Position Paper- Articulated Crane Operator Requirements CICA-PA-0009-B (17/08/2015) recognises that corrected inflated Tyres are critical for stabilisation / control for Pick & Carry Cranes (Articulated Cranes). Some major construction and mining companies are now specifying Tyre Monitoring Systems (TMSystems) as required safety equipment for Pick- n- Carry articulated Cranes for their projects. According to Crane Industry Council of Australia (CICA), there are over 5000 articulated cranes in operation in Australia which make up approximately 50% of the total number of mobile cranes in Australia. Nearly every crane company has at least one articulated crane and many companies have fleets of these cranes. Articulated (Pick- n- Carry) Cranes typically do not have Stabilisers or Outriggers and so Crane stability is dependant on the Cranes suspension and tyres. Crane rated capacities on tyres depend on tyre capacity, condition of the tyres, tyre air pressure (generally Front 120-130 PSI, Rear 90-130 PSI) and ground conditions. According to the Australian Standards (AS 1418.5-2013), Articulated Cranes should be operated on firm level ground (to within 1% gradient, 0.6°) and all tyres must be checked and inflated to the recommended pressure before lifting. Recent accidents validate that ensuring correctly inflated tyres is not only critical before a lift (static position) but also during travel especially with a load. Moreover- Tyre pressures and temperatures should be constantly monitored during high speed travel on roads. Pick- n- Carry (any Mobile Crane) Cranes are especially susceptible to stability issues due to their articulation. Incorrectly inflated or a rapid loss of tyre pressures / blow-outs that can very quickly cause loss of control and can eventuate quickly into a rollover or collision. LSM Technologies are the leading specialist in Tyre Monitoring System Solutions, offering specialist expertise and the latest technology / design for any pneumatic tyre application. Our TMSystems are robust and fit- for purpose with some of the specialised features as:
The Queensland Government- Department of Natural Resources and Mines (DNRM) has released their updated "Recognised Standard 13 Tyre, Wheel and Rim Management- November 2016". The Standard states: "TPMS (tyre pressure monitoring systems) are beneficial in keeping the tyre pressure within its stated pressure envelope. Some monitoring systems also include temperature monitoring of the tyre air chamber. The capability to inform the vehicle operator (by remote sensing) of a tyre pressure outside of the envelope can ensure swift action to correct the situation or prevent tyre damage. The introduction of TPMS to haulage fleet tyres on mine site vehicles has been recommended by the Queensland Coroner in a recent fatality enquiry (Appendix 2)". The DNRM Standard 13 also references the Coroners recommendation that industry investigate, and implement within two years (in 2014), remote, or wireless, tyre pressure sensing equipment to allow operators to monitor tyre pressures from within the cabin of the truck- this deadline was October 2016. It also states: "This should also be considered for Earthmover and Light Vehicle tyres". The Queensland Government Standards are falling in- line with other such Standards, Guidelines and Reports for TMSystems to become mandatory mitigation control measures on all vehicles using pneumatic tyres!

Tyre Monitoring Systems (TMS) are quickly becoming a Industry "Mandatory" Safety Control for all On and Off Road Vehicles, as Authorities and Industry Standards / Guidelines demand / call for such technology be utilised to mitigate Vehicle accidents subjected to Tyre Blow outs, Roll- overs, Wheel Offs, Tyre Fires, etc as a result of Incorrect- inflation, Failed Bearings, Lightening Strikes, Pyrolysis, Locked Brakes, etc . Hyperlinks to studies, reports, reference and statistics are embedded in the white-paper, with some aspects highlighted:
LSM Technologies have been selected by Transport for NSW (TfNSW) to provide our TM System Technologies for approximately 2,500 Buses as the first large roll out of our technology to assist with the mitigation of Bus Fires related to Tyre and Wheel Well (Locked Brakes / Tyre Pressurisation, failed Wheel Bearings) issues. As already reported in our news article Tyre Monitoring Systems recommended to mitigate rising Bus and Coach Fires, the BIC Fire Advisory Report 2014 states that the number of Bus Fire Claims in Australia have increased significantly with 72 claims in 2012 alone. Also the OTSI (Office of Transport Safety Investigations) reported Bus Fires in NSW 2015 that 40% of Bus Fires were confined to the Wheel Well. LSM Technologies TMSystems are proven heavy duty, robust and reliable technology for monitoring / reporting on Tyre Pressures and Temperatures. Our TMSystems are SAE certified, have been field tested and certified by numerous Heavy On / Off Road Haulage, Dangerous Goods Transport and Blasting Operators and especially Field tested with Rocky's own Transport Trailer Study- see the related news articles below. LSM Technologies TMSystems not only provide enhanced Safety, but also enhanced Cost Downs, Tyre Service Life, Braking, Traction, Fuel Economy and Productivity. LSM Technologies are proud to be their selected technology and service provider.
LSM Technologies are to our knowledge the first and only Tyre Monitoring System technology in Australia / World extensively tested and certified for use on Dangerous Goods Transport Vehicles by one of Australia's leading Dangerous Goods Transport Carriers- Kleenheat Australia. A comprehensive Risk Assessment process was implemented by Kleenheat which included the use of an external Safety Consultant company and the Wesfarmers Chemicals,Energy and Fertilisers Safety Process Team culminating in approval for access to the gas loading bays with a number of risk mitigations applied. Kleenheat has progressed with the purchase of a number of complete gas tanker pocket road train LSM Technology systems, and we look forward to improved economics and risk reduction in the distribution of LNG and LPG throughout WA and NT.
Monitoring correct Tyre & Wheel Pressures / Temperatures to avoid Bus Fires is Critical! According to the BIC (Bus Industry Confederation) –Fire Advisory Report 2014- "Fire mitigation on Buses" is seen as a key safety issue for bus operators and drivers, bus suppliers and manufacturers, bus passengers and government agencies at all levels. Currently every week in Australia at least one bus experiences a potentially fatal fire incident. The potential for a fatal bus fire in Australia does exist, especially for buses operating in high density urban environments or in traffic tunnels". The report states that "Intermediate and Advanced Fire Mitigation Measures- Recommendation 7: "A system to monitor rear tyre pressures for high speed bus operations and to advise the driver if a tyre failure has occurred". The report also states that the number of Bus Fire Claims in Australia have increased significantly with 72 claims in 2012 alone. OTSI (Office of Transport Safety Investigations) has recently released their investigative report into Bus Fires in NSW 2015 and 40% of Bus Fires were confined to the Wheel Well. NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration- USA) Motorcoach Fire Safety Report- Nov 2015- cited that the "causes for wheel fires are primarily dragging brakes, failed bearings, underinflated tyres". They also recommend the implementation of (TMS) Tyre Pressure (& Temperature) Monitoring Technology to mitigate tyre / wheel fires. Many other Industries are also calling to mandate TMSystems so as to mitigate tyre related incidents / fatalities such as in Mining, On and Off Road Transport, Heavy Haulage, Mobile Cranes. etc- all with common and large percentile of tyre / wheel related issues (under- inflation, failed bearings, locked brakes, rubbing dual sets, wheel offs) that are also suffered in the Public Transport. For example:
Legendary Six-time Bathurst V8 Supercar winner Larry Perkins endorses LSM Technologies and Tyre Monitoring System technology. Larry says: "I have had the RV360 TMSystems on my Unimog / Trailer now for about 7 years and never had a problem with flat batteries, failure of the Sensors or unit. I have seen many systems in my travels and this particular unit leaves all the others for dead". "The RV360 TMSystem from LSM Technologies is the the best thing for a road vehicle in Australia in outback and desert travel. It has saved me many times maintaining and ensuring tyre pressures are correct." Larry has been using our Tyre Monitoring Systems (TMSystems) since about 2006 and he goes on to say: "I now spend a lot of time with remote desert travel and have been using the TMSystems from LSM Technologies with the Unimog for over 5 years also for my Quad Bike / Trailer Tow" Larry may have retired from professional racing but he has a factory in Melbourne and is still involved with many extreme vehicular projects such as manufacturing Overdrive Gearboxes in Germany for the latest U4000/5000 Unimogs. LSM Technologies are proud to have another professional endorsement of our technologies / services along with other famous enthusiasts such as Allan Whiting of Outback Travelling Australia- who also has had involvement with testing / driving Unimogs in the Outback- see Alan's endorsement at this links:
LSM Technologies Tyre Monitoring System adverted a potential Tyre Fire / Disaster for one of our On Road Transport Operators with the owner of the Company "praising their investment" in the use of such technology. Using our MTR360 TMSystem, the Operator was alerted in the Cabin of his Prime- mover with a "Over Temperature Alarm" on one of the Dolly Tyres / Wheels. Despatch had also been alerted of the issue via our On- line FSM System Web based Reporting System. The TMSystem also identified the respective Tyre / Wheel on the Dolly Axle. The driver quickly pulled over the Rig and inspected the Wheel to find that the Brake Disc was virtually "glowing". One of the calliper's had dislodged and was locked to the Brake Disc (locked brake). This incident proves that TMSystem Technology can aid as a (safety) control measure to mitigate the potential for a Tyre Fire / Wheel Off or something even more catastrophic. Also considering the potential damage that could have occurred to the Rig- the ROI (return on investment) has been more than validated- on this incident alone.

Tyre Monitoring Systems (TMS) are expected to become a "mandatory" Industry control safety measure for On and Off Road Vehicles as Authorities and Industry Standards / Guidelines demand / call for such technology be utilised to mitigate Vehicle accidents subjected to Tyre Blow outs, Roll- overs, Wheel Offs, Tyre Fires, etc. Tyre related accidents and fatalities involving vehicles utilised in such industries as Mining, On / Off Road Transport, Quarrying, Forklift / Materials Handling, Mobile Cranes, Light Vehicles, Distribution Trucks, Port Operations, etc has highlighted the importance of (virtual continuous) monitoring of Tyre Pressures and Temperatures with Tyre Monitoring Systems (TMSystems), so as to aid in mitigating potential Tyre related vehicular accidents / incidents. Highlighted at the 2016 ARTSA Conference and reported in the ATN Magazine (03/05/2016) a former senior Toll Transport / Linehaul Manager reportedly stated "wheel-offs and wheel failures are the company’s biggest cost in terms of insurance claims and there is a wheel off or trailer fire in the group every two weeks, so it is a significant issue". A Coroner Report of a tyre explosion fatality (October 2014) acknowledged that Industry can also gain significant cost- downs / ROI with the use of TMSystems and recommended that industry investigate, and implement within two years (in 2014), remote, or wireless, tyre pressure sensing equipment to allow operators to monitor tyre pressures from within the cabin of the truck- this deadline is October 2016. The Hazardous Goods Transport Industry also acknowledges the benefits of LSM Technologies TMSystems which have been field tested for detecting not only Tyre Pressure but also Temperatures, so as to aid in mitigating Tyre Fires- see this report / news article LSM Technologies / Rocky's Heavy Transport- TMSystem Trailer Tyre Fire Mitigation Field Study / Report. Department or Mining and Petroleum Safety Resources has updated their Guidelines on Tyre Safety for Earth-moving Machinery) to include TMSystems to be installed- not just for Mining Equipment- but also other rubber mounted vehicles (see page IV) .

Due to the large number of wheels and tyres on On and Off Heavy Haulage Float Trailers, managing tyre pressures can be a very time consuming and dangerous undertaking. Often just physically accessing the inside wheels on a large Float Trailer is nigh impossible, particularly when loaded. Moreover, it can take literally 4+ hours to check and record the pressures on a 64 Wheel Float Trailer (and 12 x Wheel PMover). Heavy Haulage Operators will generally check for tyre damage and tyre pressures prior to haulage movements, however this is not always possible and consequently costly blow-outs, equipment damage, potential tyre fire and haulage downtime occurs. The answer is LSM Technologies MTR360 Wireless Tyre Monitoring System (TMSystem) to monitor all tyre Pressure and Temperature on the Truck and Trailer Tyres, with the capacity to monitor any Trailer configuration (up to 180 Tyres) simultaneously in real-time in the Operator Cabin, with the walk- around SmartLink Wireless Table device or using our FSM System System.

One of the significant contributors to premature Tyre Sensors failure is Sealant and Conditioner Fluids used ion OTR Tyres. After more than two years of research, product development, independent lab certification and field testing, LSM Technologies / Doran has introduced a new Doran 360™ Tyre Sensor for Off-the road (OTR) tyres- another Worlds First in Tyre Monitoring System (TMS) Technology.. The Tyre Sensor is specifically designed to provide enhanced reliably and to perform in the harsh environments found in Mining, Quarry and other Off-road Vehicle applications. Some of the OTR Tyre Sensor features:
In the Heavy Transport industry, brake, wheel bearing and tyre failures can potentially cause high wheel hub and tyre temperatures on trucks and trailers. This can result in catastrophic equipment failure, fires and explosions causing substantial damage. It is paramount this risk be significantly mitigated or eliminated from Heavy Transport operations. Furthermore, these events should be recorded to enable review and reporting for incident analysis. Also the TMSystem is required to alert the Operator so as to take corrective action to prevent damage to the vehicle, surrounding people & property. Changes to recent Industry Standards/ Guidelines and Coroner Report have set a precedent in demanding that TMSystem Technology is implemented so as to avoid such events Management of the risks associated with operating Heavy Transport requires effective maintenance of tyres and wheels as critical components. On- road failures of these components can result in a catastrophic situation (wheel fire / tyre explosions / tyre failures). Some relative statistics state that:

Whenever travelling, Allan Whiting of Outback Travelling Australia never leaves without LSM Technologies Tyre Monitoring Systems and Ride- on Sealants / Balancers. Allan has been utilising LSM Technologies Doran Tyre Pressure Monitoring Systems and Ride- on Sealants / Balancers for some years now and continues to advocate the benefits of protecting his Tyres with both these technologies. Read Allan's latest article on repairing Flat Tyres on his web site. In Allan's words: "Speed, weight and pressure are influences on punctures and our experience shows that if you can reduce speed, weight and pressure you’ll normally have fewer punctures. A tyre pressure monitoring system gives early warning of a slight leak, allowing you to plug the tyre before more damage is done. We’ve saved several tyres by using monitoring systems and wouldn’t go bush without one.". "Internal tyre sealing treatments can seal small punctures as they occur. Tyre makers don’t like them because they block a hole without necessarily warning the driver that there was a puncture, but our experience testing Ride-On liquid is that if a hole is large enough to warrant a professional patching job, the sealant won't block the hole completely and a tyre pressure monitoring system detects the leak" For more information how LSM Technologies can assist you with the latest in TMSystem Technology:
