Hunter Engineering Co. has released an Inflation Station that is compatible with its Quick Check vehicle inspection system or can be installed as an independent system.
The company says Inflation Station quickly measures tire pressure and then inflates or deflates the tires according to the user-entered specifications. Technicians simply set the pressure at the Inflation Station or Quick Check console and connect the air hoses.
With the Quick Check Inflation Station, the initial and final tire pressure readings are automatically included in the customer report. If an abnormal pressure is detected, the initial reading will turn red to indicate a potential problem. This enables the shop to present findings to the customer and recommend a detailed tire and wheel inspection. The report is available in print or digital form and can even be emailed to customers. With the new Inflation Station, shops can ensure alignment checks are always performed with the proper tire pressures.
Hunter says the new Inflation Station can even be utilized to provide a quick, complimentary tire fill service for a shop’s customers. This valuable service can generate additional customer traffic, profitable service opportunities and revenue to a shop.
Tire pressure measurement units can be set for psi, bar or kPa. The new Inflation Station meets and exceeds the California Bureau of Automotive accuracy standards.
