REAL PROBLEM

It is a well documented fact that loosening wheels are caused by a relaxing of the wheel assembly behind the nut resulting in reduced clamping force, rim movement. Fretting of the assembly and, if not identified early, eventual failure and detachment, simply preventing the wheel nut from turning will not prevent this event from happening, as the reduction of clamping force is taking place within the assembly, not the nut. There are numerous respected Forensic, engineering and Government websites which analyse the loosening and detaching wheel issue In great detail. A commissioned report by the United Kingdom transport research laboratory has estimated that in the UK alone 7500-11000 wheel fixing defects are recorded annually (considerably more go unreported)

45% due to failed wheel studs (due to fretting)
23% worn studs (due to fretting)
13% stripped threads
4% corroded studs
15% other defects

The consensus of opinion remains the same. Insufficient clamping force is the main reason wheel assemblies fail.

REAL SOLUTION

The only solution to a loosening wheel is early identification and resolution. The earlier the identification , the better the resolution. You cannot improve on loosening wheel identification by fitting non indicating locking devices. No indication means a total reliance on fall back scheduled maintenance procedures which increase the opportunity of between service wheel failure or detachment. Indication and retension means opportunity to identify and resolve issues between service periods, which would otherwise be missed. This contributes to the increased efficiency and safety of the fleet. Based on years of wheel safety reports Redcat design and manufacture products which utilise critical indication as the core function, resulting in a much wider resolution safety window.

Visual Indicators

Visual indicators provide the ability for early identification of loosening wheels due to human error, stud fatigue stretch and hub wheel settling. Three of the most common reasons of loosening wheels.

The Early visual identification provided by loose nut indicators allows timely maintenance intervention, reducing expensive unscheduled maintenance and downtime.

NB – The use of REDCAT indicators assist in the pre emptive identification of loosening wheels, they are not intended to replace or compromise recommended vehicle, wheel or hub manufacturer’s maintenance procedures, REDCAT do not take responsibility for incorrect use or failure to adhere to advised manufacturers maintenance procedures.
