Because TPMS failure is oftens due to valve stem failure, caused by galvanic corrosion, Ken-Tool has introduced its new reCore Sensor Saver System that positions auto and tire service shops to take advantage of TPMS repair opportunities while they save their customers time and money.
An affordable solution to valve stem corrosion problems, the patent-pending reCore System provides everything service technicians need to repair corroded TPMS valves -- including replacement TPMS valve stems and caps that are nickel-plated and will not fail due to galvanic corrosion.
The replacement process itself is fast and simple. Technicians work directly on the damaged valves, removing the corroded stem, tapping new threads, and torqueing in
the replacement stem. There’s no need to remove the tires from the vehicle, no need to rebalance the tires, and no need to reset or relearn the TPMS sensor.
Also part of the system and included in the $199 Starter Kit: a high-speed carbon steel dual cutter drill bit for recoring; a premium German-made tap for cutting new threads; and special O-rings and professional-grade threadlock to ensure an air-tight and secure seal.
