The Working of Run flats Inside Wheel Assemblies

In everyday life, we see normal vehicles having wheel assemblies consisting of Rim and Tire assembled on the vehicles to run on road and on off road conditions. In case of loss in tire pressure or when tire gets punctured, the solution for making the vehicle run again on roads is to change the tire. In this case, recovery vehicle will carry this type of vehicle at a desired location where tires will be changed

The above case of using recovery vehicle is not at all possible when Military Vehicles are in danger zones as they need to escape from these areas bringing vehicle occupants life to safety. For such types of cases, the use of Run Flat System plays a vital role for vehicle safety

A Run Flat System is a system wherein Run Flats, made preferably of Thermoplastic, are fitted inside Rim and Military Tyres so that vehicle can run for 100 kilometers in the cases of deflated tires which also stops the rim from being damaged. Such type of application is being considered as one of the most valuable Armour Solutions when it comes to using a Military Vehicle

The Europlast Run Flat supplied consists of a multi-segment ring made of casted polyamide with modified elastomers that has standardized fixing components. The rings are designed to fit on all single and multi-part rims for different types of tires and wheel loads
