During this process, aircraft tires are taken through a continuous simulation of landings under varying loads and forces. It is vital that a constant pressure is maintained in the aircraft tire throughout this test.
The QB3H high flow electro-pneumatic pressure regulator is great for this application because of the high pressures and large volumes. The QB3H is used in conjunction with a rotary union to maintain a constant pressure in the tire throughout the duration of the test. This allows manufacturers to perfect their product by helping them predict the behavioral characteristics of each tire under any and all plausible circumstances.
