Basic ITS focuses on pneumatic, solid resilient, press-on and polyurethane-filled tires used in industrial applications. It covers the service procedures for different types of tire and rim assemblies. The Basic ITS Program includes 11 Modules, and comes with a DVD, Instructor's Guide, 1 Student Workbook and 1 Final Exam. Additional Workbooks and Exams can be ordered for technicians in need of training.
Module 1Introduction Covers the required personal protective equipment (PPE) as well as the inflation equipment required by OSHA regulation 29 CFR 1910.177.
Module 2Tires Addresses the unique size designations for pneumatic, solid resilient and press-on tires and explains their differences to ensure the proper fitment is used on industrial machines.
Module 3Rims, Wheels and Hubs Describes the different types of rims, wheels and hubs that are used on pneumatic, solid and press-on tires. It also includes information on dimensions and explains how they are measured.
Module 4Hydraulic Press Operation & Maintenance Solid resilient and press-on tires require a specialized hydraulic press. This module explains the basic principles for press operation and covers the regular inspection and maintenance guidelines that should be followed.
Module 5Jacking & Lifting, Install and Remove Adresses the proper lifting and support procedures for different types of industrial equipment, and the steps for installing and removing different types of industrial tire assemblies.
Module 6Single-Piece Service Procedures While most tires used on single-piece rims are tubeless pneumatic, a special type of solid resilient tire is also used on a singlie-piece rim. This module addresses the service procedures for both types of tires on single-piece rims.
Module 7Two-Piece Service Procedures There are two types of two-piece rims used in industrial applications: traditional rim base with a side ring and bolt-together. This module covers the service procedures for pneumatic and solid resilient tires on both types of two-piece rims.
Module 8Three-Piece Service Procedures Focuses on pneumatic and solid resilient tires used on three-piece rims, and explains the step-by-step service procedures for standard three-piece rims and three-piece rims that include a bead seat stand.
Module 9Tube-Type/Tubeless Conversion Continental and Michelin have developed special systems that allow tubeless tires to be mounted on rims that typically require an innertube and flap. This module covers the installation procedures for both systems on two-piece and three-piece rims.
Module 10Press-On Demount/Mount Addresses how to use the unique tools and equipment used for demounting and mounting press-on tires on different types of hubs.
Module 11Poly Fill In applications where the flat proof qualities of solid resilient and press-on tires are needed but not available, standard tubeless and tube-type tires can be filled with polyurethane. This module covers the procedures and guidelines for installing polyurethane fill in standard tire and wheel assemblies.
