Wheel-End Sensors For Trailers

Posted on June 27, 2008

ArvinMeritor, Inc. said that Strick Trailers will be offering the Meritor Tire Inflation System (MTIS), equipped with ThermALERT heat sensor technology as its preferred tire management system on Strick, Cheetah and Evans product lines. ThermALERT is the patented technology of the Meritor Tire Inflation System by P.S.I. (MTIS) that is designed to alert drivers of elevated wheel-end temperatures. The preferred positioning is effective immediately for all new orders.

The MTIS system is engineered to automatically monitors and maintains consistent air pressure in heavy-duty trailer tires, helping to decrease tire blowouts. ThermALERT helps alert drivers to take preventive action that avoids damage caused by elevated wheel-end temperatures. The combined system reduces vehicle downtime and tire maintenance costs, the company said.
