How To Prevent Accidents when Inflating Tires

Dec 1,2017

The following are some tips to avoid accidents:

Verification of instruments to avoid excessive pressure during inflation:

Adjust the compressor to the recommended pressure;

Ensure that the manometer is in good working order;

Check the airtightness of the valve;

Inspect the tire for any defect in the weave of the tire cord, as well as any cracks, bulges, or broken reinforcing belt/reinforcement wire. In case of doubt, get rid of the tire;

Inspect the safety cage for any defect or weakness in the welds;

Both the tire and the rim must be at the same temperature as the surroundings.

Safe inflation

Place the wheel in a cage that is in good condition and strictly reserved for this type of work;

The cage must not be attached to the ground (unless otherwise indicated by the manufacturer);

Use a clip-on air chuck with an air hose extension supplied with a control valve and a manometer;

Remote control is suggested;

The worker should be alone and attentive to unusual noises and concentrated on the behavior of the tire within the cage;

The worker must wear safety glasses, gloves, and safety boots;

The ground nearby should be clear of any obstacles;

The cage should have 92 cm (36”) clearance around it, and when it is used, the operator must stay at least 3 meters (10’) from the cage (in the working area).

  • Correctly install the tire on a compatible rim;
