The civil engineering sector was quick to seize on TELEFLOW technology to increase the adaptability of its vehicles to the terrain. Operating in often changing terrain, the choice of remote inflation was an obvious one for construction and electrical network maintenance companies. Providing operational teams with a mobility solution for rapid intervention in sometimes extreme conditions has become a necessity.

The French electricity transmission network RTE is one of the largest in Europe with more than 100,000 km of power lines.

Spread across France, the overhead network takes routes that are difficult to access or sets up its pylons on terrain whose quality varies according to the weather. However, the network must remain accessible in all circumstances for the intervention teams. It is therefore not surprising that most of their vehicles are equipped with CTIS TELEFLOW, whatever the range.

Indeed, some applications will favour the Programmable Rolling Inflation system (GRP) offering experienced users a control of the tyre pressures at the wheel or at the axle. It can be integrated on the vehicle by internal way if the axles are predisposed to the passage of air, it can also be added on the structure by external way.

Other occasional applications will prefer the simpler use of a Centralized Stationary Inflation that the GCA offers. This easy to integrate model brings the convenience of simultaneous inflation of all the wheels of a 4×4, 6×6 or 8×8 vehicle to users who do not require the ability to do so while on the move. Some humanitarian or military logistics operators in peacetime also find it an assurance to continue their journey despite the surprise of soft ground.

Beyond its primary function of assisting mobility by guaranteeing off-road traction, it is the total cost of ownership of the vehicle that is optimised and the owner of a fleet of vehicles who benefits from CTIS in the long term by extending the life of the tyres, preserving the winch due to less use, or saving fuel.
