  • Publication number: 20200070450
    Abstract: A motor vehicle with a compressor assembly for the supply of a pressure medium to a tire cavity of a tire of a motor vehicle. The compressor assembly has a compression chamber which is rotationally fixed in relation to the motor vehicle wheel, and the compression chamber and the tire cavity are connected via a fluidic connection for the conveying of a pressure medium from the compression chamber into the tire cavity. A tire sealing device has a sealant reservoir with a first connection fluidically connected to a tire cavity of a tire of the motor vehicle to be repaired, and a second connection fluidically connected to a pressure medium source secured to the motor vehicle. The sealant is conveyed out of the pressure medium source into the tire cavity of the tire to be repaired by means of the pressure medium.

  • Publication number: 20190375253
    Abstract: A compressor assembly (10) for supplying pressure medium to a tire cavity (7) of a tire of a vehicle wheel, which can be mounted on a wheel hub (4) that is mounted on a wheel carrier (3) for rotation about an axis of rotation (32). The compressor assembly (10) includes a hub-side compression chamber (16) and a compressor component (18). A pressure medium is conducted into the tire cavity (7) upon being pressurized in the compression chamber (16) by oscillating translational motion of the compressor component (18). The compressor assembly (10) includes a transmission (20) that converts a rotational motion between the wheel carrier side and the wheel hub side into an oscillating translational motion of the compressor component (18) when a hub-side transmission part (24) is in an operating position with a wheel-carrier-side transmission part (26).

  • Publication number: 20190308472
    Abstract: A compressor assembly for supplying pressure medium to a tire cavity of a vehicle wheel that can be mounted on a wheel hub which is mounted on a wheel carrier so as to be rotatable about an axis of rotation. A transmission, preferably a cam mechanism, is equipped, through a cooperation of a wheel mount-side transmission part with a hub-side transmission part, to convert a rotary movement between the wheel mount side and the wheel hub side into an oscillating translatory movement of the compressor component, with the translatory movement of the compressor component extending at least partially, preferably entirely, in a radial direction that is oriented orthogonally to the axis of rotation.

  • Publication number: 20170246922
    Abstract: A pressure medium supply device for a tire of a wheel unit, a wheel unit, and a valve arrangement for a rotationally fixed transition of a pressure medium supply device for a wheel unit are provided. The valve arrangement has a housing part through which a pressure medium can flow, a control piston, in particular an axially movable control piston which is received on the housing part, and a discharge element with an outlet for conducting the pressure medium. The housing part and the discharge element are received in a rotatable manner relative to each other. The control piston has a flow channel for the pressure medium, has a force application surface to which the pressure medium can be applied, and can be moved between a disengaged position and an engaged position. A pressure medium line can be established between the housing part and the discharge element in the engaged position.
