Power Station orders further TMS systems for remaining vehicles
Ferrybridge Power Station has ordered more TMS systems to be fitted to new tyres about to be fitted to their remaining Terex T40 scrapers by Earthmover Tyres of Wakefield, taking the total number of TMS sets installed at Ferrybridge to five.
Following the success of TMS in preventing the expensive downtime of one of the scrapers through an overheating bearing, which was detected by the system as an increase in temperature and pressure in the tyre, the power station operators have ordered systems to be fitted to the latest batch of tyres.
“These tyres are sourced from the US and are quite hard to find, it seemed a sensible option to fit the TMS when we fit the tyres to the scrapers. This installation will mean that all of the power station’s scrapers can be monitored using TMS.” explained Darran Stone of Earthmover Tyres.
