BPW Press Release  /  October 4, 2016

BPW is presenting AirSave, a cost-effective solution for keeping tyre pressure within the optimum range automatically with accompanying indication of imminent tire failures.

AirSave is easy to retrofit and freely scalable thanks to its decentralized and autonomous design. The system can be combined with every brand of tires and rims.

“Today’s TPMS systems use telematics applications to show any deviation from the optimum tyre pressure. However, whether and when the problem is resolved, for example by topping up with air, remains open. This is only possible with automatic tire pressure control systems, such as our AirSave system,” explains BPW Innovation Management Director Markus Kliffken. 

One advantage that AirSave has over previous tire pressure control systems: it is an autonomous solution that can be easily fitted or retrofitted with minimum additional cost.

The system consists of a compressor, electric control unit, tire valve, a number of pressure and temperature sensors as well as a power source. Each individual tire is automatically adjusted to the correct pressure while traveling. System faults such as a steady loss of pressure are indicated by means of an LED light directly on the tire. 

“Tyre pressure plays an important role in reducing operating expenses. If it is not within the optimum range, this can lead to increased tire wear, reduced tire mileage and higher fuel consumption as well as CO2 emissions,” says Kliffken. “Thanks to AirSave’s decentralised system, it is much easier to locate tire damage.”

AirSave is easy to retrofit and freely scalable thanks to its decentralized and autonomous design. Moreover, the system is completely maintenance-free. Because AirSave is mounted on the hub, no special components are required for the wheel itself, and servicing the tires is straightforward. The system can be combined with every brand of tires and rims.
