Branick Launches Tire Explosion Video Captured With Phantom Camera

Branick announces the launch of their safety video featuring tire explosions captured for the first time with a high definition (HD), extreme slow-motion camera. The video highlights the dangers of an exploding tire and features the benefits of inflating with a tire cage and auto inflator.

Branick recognizes the danger involved when it comes to tire inflation and is using this video to showcase the safety measures and time saving opportunities available. The cage holds the tire, but
it’s the auto inflator that allows a technician to maintain a distance from the inflating tire and even work on other duties while inflating.

“The concept for this video really came about because we wanted to show how tire inflation cages combined with auto inflators can help save lives and save time,” said Brian Brasch, president of Branick. “We definitely accomplished what we set out to do, and was an investment that was well worth it.”

The Phantom Camera slowed the video shots down to 1500 frames per second (fps), allowing viewers to witness the second a tire explodes due to over inflation.

“We’ve heard from so many shops that said using the auto inflator helped save time by allowing them to complete other tasks while inflating, and it also got them away from an inflating tire,” Brian
said. “We’ve had guys tell us stories about close calls they’ve had and we are so proud to offer a product that not only saves shops time, but keeps technicians safe as well.”
