The Dustite LR® combines a loose wheel nut Indicator, with a standard dust cap for use on wheels with trims. Like the Checkpoint®, Dustites LR® indicate loosening of safety critical nuts and includes a wheel overheating function, but offers the additional benefits that come with a wheel nut cap for protecting the nut from weathering, corrosion and general road damage
The primary functions of Dustite LR® are to:
Provide a clear visual indication of nut movement, particularly useful and applicable for commercial vehicle wheels even where an obstructive wheel trim exists
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 Dustite LR® are:
✓ Improved safety of fittings where nuts are a critical structural component, such as on vehicle wheels where an obstructive wheel trim exists ✓ Facilitates the ease of walk around and visual checks or audits to locate problems with fixtures or fittings where nuts are used as a critical component ✓ Reduction in maintenance costs resulting from accurate locating of nut loosening or wheel overheating ✓ Reduction in vehicle downtime ✓ Improved safety and protection of nuts and bolts from corrosion and damage ✓ Improved professionalism, roadworthiness and safety related company image or reputation ✓ Cost effective, quick and easy solution to implement
