TBC Brands LLC Dill has new digital tire inflator The new 7260 digital tire inflator from Dill Air Control Products features a 2-foot kink-resis- tance, stainless steel hose and a large back-lit display. The 7260 includes an auto on/off feature, and each unit is assembled and tested in the U.S. Dill Air Controls Products provides the motorsports, automotive, RV, fleet, off-road and trucking industries with valve stems and hardware, tire inflation devices, TPMS and hand tools, notes the company. DILL AIR CONTROL PRODUCTS LLC Ingersoll Rand offers new torque limited impact wrench The 2-inch anvil of the new 2135QTL-2 ½-inch torque limited impact wrench from Ingersoll Rand is designed to provide better access to recessed lug nuts, making it ideal for tire shops and service centers. The tool restricts forward torque from 55 to 75 foot-pounds, reducing the chance of damaging wheels without sacrificing reverse torque. Weighing just 4.3 pounds, the 2135QTL-2 is the ultimate torque wrench counterpart, according to the company. It delivers 780 foot-pounds of max reverse torque to remove stubborn lug nuts quickly and reaches target torque in two to three seconds. INGERSOLL RAND PLC Atlas Automotive Equipment introduces TreadReader The new TreadReader handheld scan tool from Atlas Automotive Equipment is designed to provide an instant 3D image of a tire, providing data such as tread depth and adverse wear. The company says advisory information like misalignment or uneven wear due to under- or over-inflation is also displayed, presenting a "no-question" presentation to the user on the condition of the vehicle's tires, and the recommended resolution. The unit requires just a few seconds to run over all four tires for instant upload to a smartphone or tablet via the TreadReader app. ATLAS AUTOMOTIVE EQUIPMENT LLC New Meyle cabin filter protects against bacteria The newest Meyle-Original cabin air filter is designed to protect against bacteria and help prevent the development of mold and fungi in addition to filtering out harmful gases, soot and pollen. Meyle AG says an additional filter layer enriched with silver ions provides the new Meyle- Original cabin filter with an antibacterial function. The fungicidal effect of the silver ion layer also prevents the development of molds. The new cabin air filter consists of four layers that clean the air before it enters the vehicle interior.
