Tire TPMS Valves Stems
MOBILE TIRE TPMS VALVES STEMS AT YOUR HOME OR OFFICE
Have you gone to check your vehicle’s tire air pressure and found the cap that screws on the valve stem was missing on one or more tires? Everything on your vehicle that was equipped by the manufacturer serves a purpose, big or small. A tire TPMS valve stem cap may seem insignificant, but it actually serves a pretty big purpose. It is designed to protect the Schrader valve, a valve stem into which a valve stem core is threaded, that keeps the air or nitrogen in your tires. A valve stem cap is important for the Schrader valve because if one is not fitted, dirt and moisture can enter the inside of the valve stem, potentially jamming or contaminating the sealing surfaces and causing a leak.
WHAT IS TIRE TPMS VALVES STEMS?
The Tire Pressure Monitoring Valve Stem is the valve stem in the wheels of a car, on which the tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) is mounted. The valve stem acts as a check valve by opening to let pressurized air inside the tire, and the closing when the right pressure in the tire is reached. The TPM valve stems use a special valve core that is usually part of the sensor. Attempting to reuse the original rubber grommet, valve core and retaining nut may result in an air leak. It is important to retain the original aluminium TPMS sensor’s type valve cap.
