ARLINGTON, Va., March 4, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today, American Trucking Associations welcomed Aperia Technologies, maker of the Halo Tire Inflator, as its newest ATA Featured Product provider.
"Being able to automatically inflate tires for both tractors and trailers is a true game-changer in the trucking industry and we're glad to see Aperia Technologies developing cutting-edge technology," said ATA President and CEO Bill Graves. "The Halo Tire Inflator is helping our industry stay environmentally friendly, creating safer conditions for professional truck drivers, and allowing ATA members to reduce operating costs."
Aperia Technologies is the maker of the Halo Tire Inflator, a self-powered, bolt-on tire inflation device for tractors and trailers. First to market with a tire inflation system for tractors, Halo is an easy-to-install system that operates similarly to a self-winding watch. The device uses a wheel's rotational motion to pump and maintain optimal tire pressure. The system does not require any connection to a compressor and can be installed in five to ten minutes per wheel end.
"Under-inflation remains a major but controllable cause of high fuel and tire costs for fleets, and a safety issue as well," said Josh Carter, CEO of Aperia. "Being part of the ATA Featured Product program is a testimonial to the ability of the Halo to improve the cost of operating tractors and trailers and to positively impact safety on the nation's highways. We are proud to be named an ATA Featured Product provider."
The Halo Tire Inflator maintains tire inflation at optimal levels, which, in turn improves fuel efficiency, reduces blowouts and emissions, and extends tire life, according to Carter. Additionally, having properly inflated tires on the nation's roads creates safer driving conditions for the general motoring public.
