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 .”

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

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
