Tyre Management System
Customers can benefit from a comprehensive tyre management package to suit individual requirements. Our dedicated management team provide a personal and tailored service which will help reduce downtime and improve tyre performance.
•Fleet Check – This will provide the required information on tyre condition, pressure checks and wheel components to assist with preventative maintenance and increase tyre performance thus reducing costs.
•Tyre Management Service – Fully managed tyre programmes to suit the unique needs of our customers, to forecast tyre performance, regulate costs and reduce downtime.
•Fixed cost options – To assist in forecasting and budgeting.
All tyre management packages are carried out by our dedicated management team. Customers receive reports, recommendations and consultation related to findings, promptly and efficiently
Getting the best performance out of your investment requires choosing the correct tyres.
We can help you to select the appropriate tyre for your machine, application and site conditions.
The correct tyre for the job will ensure longer tyre life, greater fuel efficiency, better machine performance and reduction in maintenance. We supply all major brand tyres as well as offering Marangoni® re‐tread and remould products
We think that a tyre repair should be guaranteed and last the lifetime of a tyre under normal working conditions. A repair will maintain the value of your tyre. We offer two types of tyre repair:
•Cold Cure On‐Site Repair
•Vulcanised (Major) Repair at our main depot in Stoke‐on‐Trent
A cold cure on‐site repair is a guaranteed repair. It will be there at the end of the tyres working life as long as the machine is run under proper conditions. This type of repair maintains the value of the tyre.
We perform vulcanised repairs at our Stoke‐on‐Trent workshop. Vulcanised repairs offer a cost effective alternative to a replacement tyre. A major repair also helps to reduce the impact on the environment by extending tyre life.
T&C Site Services has a strict no‐plugging policy. We only plug tyres to move machines to a safe location so a repair may be performed. Plugging is triage, not a repair, and is deceptively poor value‐for‐money for your operation.
The main function is to cover our customer needs in various tyre categories sold in this market. We offer technical services such as Tyre Surveys, Scrap Tyre Analysis, Test Tyres, Route Studies, Load Studies, Heat surveys and Troubleshooting.
a. Scrap Tyre Analysis
Regular scrap tyre analysis are specifically required by sites to be conducted by the tyre manufacturer, Trofomo and the Customer. The relevant information is also processed through the Tyre management system. Scrap tyres need the following additional system output:
•Reasons for failure; to determine problem areas within operation and then make suitable recommendations
•The calculation of lost performance versus target
•Recording loss per failure type.
•Credit for casings
•Any retreadable casings will be assessed for possible purchase (parameters to be agreed upon.)
•Tyre surveys are conducted as per site requirements to determine operational level and tyre conditions.
•The information subtracted from the surveys are processed on the TMS system and the centralised service process unit.
•The survey report will reflect (non-performing KPI‘s) operational levels, including actual pressures. Urgent attention and incidents reported directly to technical personnel.
•Wheel position and permanent identification mark to be recorded for capture.
c. Site Study
The Trofomo Technical Team will conduct site studies where necessary to ascertain the specific environment related to underfoot conditions, type of haul, etc.
A study of this nature will provide the necessary information to assist in recommending the correct tyre application.
The study will also highlight problems and possible causes as to why tyre failures occur, this will result in recommendation and solutions.
d. Load Studies
These will be conducted where it is necessary to establish or determine actual payloads, load distribution, specific axle loads etc, so that correct inflation pressures can be recommended. This will assist in extended tyre life and additional cost savings.
e. Route Surveys
These are conducted to determine road conditions and their possible influence on New tyre and retread tyre selection, performance and specific maintenance requirements.
We have structured our services offering in line with our business Units to meet the standards of the industry and Customers:

World Wide Support
Technical Quick Response
Rubber Track Design
ORTSERV is just as qualified off the road as we are on it. Combine new earthmover tyres from the world’s top manufacturers like Michelin, Goodyear, Yokohama and Camso with a comprehensive retreading program, and you’ve got an earthmover tyre solution guaranteed to get the job done. Additional earthmover service solutions include 24/7/365 preventative/emergency service, fleet inspections, and tyre and inventory tracking.
As a full-service earthmover specialist, ORTSERV can help you build confidence in your tyres, so you can increase your equipment availability/performance, regularly deliver lower cost per hour/ton, and maximize tyre durability.
All ORTSERV earthmover specialists are MSHA-certified and have approved TWIC cards. If flat tyres are costing you time and money, earthmover flatproofing can help. Pumped into the tyre through the valve stem, a liquid polyurethane polymer replaces all of the air in the tyre and cures into a resilient, synthetic rubber core that completely eliminates faults. It works in any sound casing and adverse weather. To ensure that your equipment keeps running, TROFOMO uses the highest-quality Foam-Fill from ORTSERV.
TROFOMO relies on today’s most advanced retreading process to deliver premium-grade earthmover retreads. All TROFOMO retreads are certified and warrantied.
TROFOMO utilizes Polar Rubber for its earthmover retreading.
Each tyre is hand-inspected to ensure that it meets TROFOMO’s high retreading standards.
Buffing removes the old tread design, then trues the tyre with utmost precision.
Any damaged tyre areas are removed, allowing for the proper adhesion of new rubber.
The cementing process provides a tacking surface for the new rubber.
Plugging provides a uniform surface with which to apply the retread.
Computerized building ensures precise radius, diameter, and tread depth specifications.
The new tread is embedded into the tyre and the tyre is cured from the outside in.
Trimming & Painting
Any excess rubber is removed to create a clean, smooth finish and the tyre is freshly painted.
Each tyre undergoes a rigorous final inspection. Only first-class retreads are shipped to our customers.
Monaflex Repair System
ORTSERV utilizes the Monaflex Repair System for earthmover tyre section repairs. A vulcanized repair system, Monaflex delivers 10 times more tensile strength than chemical tyre repair and allows quick turnaround times.
All TROFOMO tyre repairs are backed by a full warranty.
24/7/365 Emergency Service
If you find yourself in need of emergency earthmover service, your solution is one phone call away! Simply call 08650 22220 and TROFOMO’s entyre service network is at your fingertips. Emergency service is guaranteed within two hours of your call—24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
TROFOMO’s preventative earthmover service program ensures proper tyre PSI, tyre mating, and tyre rotations before equipment has to move. Performed by a staff of highly skilled MSHA-certified technicians, preventative service is available 24/7/365.
Based on a thorough review of every piece of earthmover equipment in your fleet, TROFOMO’s customized fleet inspection reports give you a comprehensive overview of your tyre conditions. Fleet inspection reports include PSI compliance, tread percentages, tyre mating, and overall tyre condition.
TyrFil from ORTSERV
•Tyre is completely flatproof
•No tipovers due to sudden flats
•Better ballast for steep hillsides or overload conditions
•Longer tread life than the same tyre filled with air
•Better productivity—no lost wages due to downtime
•No more tyre repair costs
•Once the tread is worn off, the casing can be retreaded
Foam-Fill is not for every application.
ORT TRACKER PROGRAM
ORTtracker is TROFOMO’s proprietary program for ORT fleet inspections and tyre asset management. This tool was developed by TROFOMO with our customer’s input to assist the needs of our ORT customers. The ORTtracker allows them higher visibility of their assets, access to a history of fleet inspections, and provides a total cost of ownership.
Every time a fleet inspection is completed all of the pertinent data is entered and saved into ORTtracker. A report providing an overview of the activity and highlighting wheel positions with concerns is created and can be sent to any interested party.
The report also includes a suggested corrective action to properly rectify the issue. Additionally, tread depths and hours of service are collected allowing fleet managers to understand their tyre cost per hour or related metric. ORTtracker saves every fleet inspection thus allowing an interested party to examine past tyre statuses. This free of charge app is manufacturer independent meaning your fleet data is not public.
Another useful feature is the casing management search tool. Every tyre’s brand and serial number is added to our database and our customers can search by those numbers to find where the tyre is being operated. This feature allows our customers to have a better visibility on their assets and cost of operation. This app is web based and be accessed wherever there is an internet connection, with a PC, tablet, or smart phone.
Be sure to ask your TROFOMO team how your business can benefit from this program
ORTSERV is committed to providing a safe working environment for not only our own personnel, but also for everyone involved in our industry.

“There is increasing pressure from the government, local councils and the public to reduce the levels of waste tire going to landfill or being exported. Significant recycling opportunities exist for investors to profit from the end products derived from tire recycling. There are more and more large volume applications for the rubber, steel and fibre derived from recycling tire which makes tire recycling an attractive opportunity for the recycling industry”
Old tires are no longer a waste disposal problem
Tyre recycling is a growth industry and our equipment offers the perfect opportunity.
We supply a complete ORT downsizing system.
TyRecy recycling equipment offers a complete solution to tire reduction and recycling. Regardless of the tire size, there is a machine capable of cutting, de-beading and baling of used tires.
