ATLAS BALANCE in the News!

ATLAS BALANCE in the News! Experiment proves truck drivers correct with cost-saving Balance Rings

The Atlas Balance Company backs tyre-life savings claims with research at the Kangan TAFE Institute in Melbourne.  Led by Institute Manager Andrew Robson, before & after testing of Atlas Balance Rings’ wheel balancing properties were carried out on a testing module called a Chassis Dynamometer  – the only one of its kind in the southern hemisphere; from 10 km to 100 km per hour. The results easily show that the shaking and rattling, measured in millivolts (mV) were more than double on trailer wheels without the atlas balance rings.

As the results show; ( see https://atlasbalance.com.au/experiment-proves-truck-drivers-correct-with-cost-saving-balance-rings/  ) at 60 km with the Atlas Balance Ring fitted, the oscilloscope is picking up 27 millivolts; without Atlas Balance Rings, the imbalance is over twice as much – at 60 km 63 millivolts imbalance.

At 100kms per hour the results are dramatic. With the Atlas Balance Ring fitted, the oscilloscope is picking up 50 millivolts; without Atlas Balance Rings, the imbalance is over twice as much – 114mV ( millivolts)  imbalance.

Dekecat Pty Ltd fit Atlas Balance Rings to new Robuk Trailers

Just this past week Marty Murphy from DEKECAT, at Hemmant in Queensland took delivery of two Robuk Trailers – another fine Australian company, and he immediately fitted the rings throughout the A and B trailers. This rig is going to be working hard on those central Queensland corrugations –on those harsh roads, it’s vital to keep Marty’s trailer tyres balanced as well as the steers. Said Marty, “ Just fitting Balance Rings to the steers and not the drives, is like just only balancing the front wheels of the family car, makes no sense at all. And this is the vehicle that’s paying all the bills .”

Balance Rings on A and B trailers too for central Queensland corrugations

G’day and Happy Friday Folks! We are here with Marty Murphy @DEKECAT, at Hemmant in Queensland with Robuk Trailers – another fine Australian company. Last week you saw us at King Bars as we fitted Atlas Balance Rings to his steers and drives. Now he’s fitting the rings throughout the A and B trailers. This beast is going to be working hard on those central Queensland corrugations – come in closer and look at this!

You’ve seen lots of our balance rings travelling on Schmick roads up and down the seaboard, and every inch of the way on those harsh roads we are going to be keeping Marty’s tyres balanced. If Marty can do it, you can do it!  Remember – It’s Atlas, It’s Balanced.

Atlas Balance Rings, from Australia .. to the world

Australia’s roads are some of the longest, roughest and most unforgiving in the world; but they are not the only ones. Driver and operators from Africa, the Middle East, Argentina, the UK, New Zealand are needing to prolong tyre life with the conditions they face too. Even European countries with magnificent autobahns want to get more life out of their tyres.  Anyone driving in Europe has seen many trucks fly past in excess of 130 kph, but the wheels still all need to be working harmoniously.

So whilst we created and tested Atlas Balance Rings here in our own wonderful country, we do share some characteristics with other countries. We all know that gravel or unsealed road heat up the tyres and cause damage to the sidewall or destroy the tyre. In Argentina, the dusty corrugations reminded me of our own outback roads, and the UK, New Zealand and Denmark all share some very steep windy roads, which will wear those tyres quickly. We’d like to hear about your international truck driving experiences, and the sort of roads you drove on?

We are now sending Atlas Balance Rings all over the world;  and fielding more and more enquiries as universally drivers and operators need to keep costs in check, and of course, they deserve a nicer ride too. We have been fielding enquiries from even those countries with famously great roads like Denmark and Scandinavia.

Pretty simple really, Australian Made-Australian owned…Remember,  It’s Atlas, It’s Balanced! Call 1300 2ATLAS (1300 228 527) TO HAVE A CHAT or ORDER AT https://atlasbalance.com.au/

Experiment proves truck drivers correct with cost-saving Balance Rings

We know thousands of Australian Truck and Bus Drivers have conducted their own cost-saving tests using Atlas Balance Rings, and are very happy campers, BUT THIS IS SCIENCE – to back up your research. 

At the Kangan Institute in Melbourne we carried out before and after testing of Atlas Balance Rings from 10 km to 100 km per hour, run by Institute Manager Andrew Robson  The graphs easily show that the shaking and rattling, measured in millivolts (mV) were more than double WITHOUT THE ATLAS BALANCE RINGS.

As the results show ( see graphs) at 60 km WITH the ATLAS BALANCE RING fitted, the oscilloscope is picking up 27 millivolts; with NO Atlas Balance Rings, the imbalance is over twice as much – at 60 km 63 millivolts imbalance.

At 100kms per hour the results are dramatic. WITH the ATLAS BALANCE RING fitted, the oscilloscope is picking up 50 millivolts; with NO Atlas Balance Rings, the imbalance is over twice as much – 114mV ( millivolts)  imbalance.

Key – Average AC RMS voltage is 50mV Accelerometer Root Means Square voltage

For more info and a chat – Call 1300 228 527- ORDER at https://atlasbalance.com.au/ #atlasbalancerings #kanganinstitute #chassisdyno #tyrelife #fuelsavings #truckinglife #savetyres #truck #extratyrelife #bdouble #kenworth #scania #mack #australia #transport

Oscilloscope Reports show;

  1. Drive axle with balance rings at 60kph. Average AC RMS voltage is 27mV
  2. Drive axle with no balance rings at 60kph. Average AC RMS voltage is 63mV. That’s double the balance ring value.
  3. Drive axle with balance rings at 100kph. Average AC RMS voltage is 50mV
  4. Drive axle with no balance rings at 100kph. Average AC RMS voltage is 114mV. Again, double the voltage

Steers plus Drives fit-out means big savings

Hey Folks, it’s Simon from the Atlas Balance Company. We are here with Marty and Dan Murphy from DEKECAT Pty Ltd at King Bars in Ipswich. This is the hometown of Atlas Balance too. We are fitting Atlas Balance Rings to the steers, but we are shortly heading off to Robuk Tailers at Hemmant, as Marty is not just fitting Atlas Balance Rings to the steers but also the drives. We are looking forward to hearing from him about his tyre savings AND fuel savings, so watch this space! Drive safe Marty – and Remember – It’s Atlas, It’s Balanced.

Rod Hannifey, safety advocate tests Atlas Balance Rings

Well known driver and safety advocate ROD HANNIFEY from TRUCK RIGHT in DUBBO is running an INDEPENDENT TEST on the effectiveness of ATLAS BALANCE RINGS. Today, the rings are fitted on the original wheels.

Rod will fit SUPER SINGLES all the way through with Atlas Balance Rings in a few months. Keep an eye on this rig on the road, chat with Rod when you see him out on the road and ask him about his before and after testing and feedback. The rig will be fitted with other Australian-made products like AirCTI from Victoria.
