Valley Irrigation Adds Tire Pressure System

Valley Irrigation is now offering the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) as part of its control technology product line.

TPMS is not only the first product in the mechanized irrigation market to monitor tire pressure on center pivot irrigation equipment, but also is a proud recipient of a 2012 World Ag Expo Top 10 New Products Award.

With the Valley TPMS, the exact location of the flat tire can be identified at the Valley Pro2 control panel, or remotely with the Valley BaseStation2SM. Detecting a low tire before it fails decreases downtime of the pivot during peak irrigation season, when irrigating is critical to maximizing yields.

The Valley TPMS was developed in response to a need identified by the Navajo Agricultural Products Industry (NAPI). With more than 10,000 tires and wheel gearboxes in their operation, NAPI needed a way to monitor for low tire pressure without having to constantly replace parts.

The exclusive relationship that exists between Valley Irrigation and Advantage PressurePro made this product possible, resulting in this Valley Irrigation patentpending design.
