Dustite® wheel nut indicator Black Box50
The primary functions of Dustites® are to:
- Provide a clear visual indication of nut movement, particularly useful and applicable for commercial vehicle wheels
- Provide an indication of wheel overheating which is otherwise difficult to detect, usually as a result of brakes sticking or problems with the bearings, through the use of specific product material melting points (Standard and High Temperature options available)
- Provide a clear visual commitment to roadworthiness and professionalism to other road users, customers, health and safety, road and transportation associations such as DFT, HMRC Customs and Excise, VOSA, HSE, FTA and RHA
- Prolong the service life of studs & nuts, through protection from corrosion, weathering and damage.
The primary benefits of fitting Dustites® are:
âœ“ Reduction in maintenance costs resulting from accurate locating of nut loosening or wheel overheating
âœ“ Reduction in vehicle downtime
âœ“ Improved professionalism, roadworthiness and safety related company image or reputation
âœ“ Cost effective, quick and easy solution to implement
Dustites® are designed to be fitted on wheels without trims/step rings since the pointer, located at the base of the product, would not allow it to fit through the access hole on a trim/step ring. Where a trim/step ring is fitted to the wheel, Dustite LR® indicators must be used. Dustite® is fitted onto the wheel nuts in a recognisable pattern once the nuts have been tightened to the manufacturers recommendations using a suitable torque wrench. This must be monitored closely through routine walk around checks, so that if any of the indicators move from the initial pattern appropriate action can be taken.
Dustite® Standard/High Temp (HT) are manufactured in the highest quality virgin polymers and are resistant to moisture/water, road salt, oil, detergents and most other common solvents/contaminants.
The integrated design of the Dustite® fully encloses wheel nuts manufactured to ISO, DIN, or the BS standards that cover Spigot, Captive Washer, Conical, or Spherical seating wheel nuts.
