Are TST TPMS Valve Stem Sensors Likely to Be Damaged By Road Debris


Need info on TST TPMS system. Is there a conern with either the standard sensor or the flowthrough sensor sticking out to where it could be damaged or broken off by a road hazard or a muddy rut?


Expert Reply:

I spoke with my contact in the Technical Services department at Truck System Technologies (TST).

I'm told that the likelihood of either the standard or flow through sensor being damaged by road debris is pretty remote. The flow-through sensors will sit quite a bit taller than the cap style sensor, about 2-1/8 inches versus 7/8 of an inch for the cap style, so theoretically the flow through style would be a bit more susceptible to damage. This is not something TST or gets calls about so it's really not something I'd be overly concerned about.
