Meritor Tire Inflation System (MTIS)

OVERVIEW

Meritor Tire Inflation System (MTIS)

For more than 20 years, Meritor has reduced industry concerns with tire pressure loss. Equipped on more than 1 million trailers, Meritor Tire Inflation System (MTIS) helps keep tires properly inflated to reduce wear and increase fuel economy. Standard ThermALERT wheel-end heat-sensing technology immediately alerts drivers to overheating wheel ends so that drivers can take preventive action to avoid damage. MTIS can be installed on all major trailer axle models in North America. It is available for new trailers and can also be retrofitted on trailers already in service.

HOW IT WORKS:

  1. Pressurized air from the tanker air supply travels along the air supply line to a filter
  2. Air is filtered through a self-draining filter to remove any impurities
  3. Pressurized air flows into the control box where the pressure is regulated to the pre-set tire psi
  4. Regulated air flows from the control box through the hollow axle tube to the rotary union ("Thru Tee")
  5. Air is transmitted as needed via the rotary union, through the tire hoses and into the tires



FEATURES & BENEFITS

  • Under inflation results in increased and uneven wear, which drives up the frequency of tire replacement by maintaining tire pressure at all times, MTIS extends tire life by 10 percent.
  • MTIS increases fuel economy by an average of 1.4 percent, according to a Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) study.
  • Tire manufacturers recommend checking tire pressure at least twice a month, but with MTIS, the time and effort spent on tire inspections decreases dramatically.
  • MTIS significantly reduces the risk of tire blowouts and the potentially costly and dangerous consequences that come with them.
  • The standard ThermALERT™ wheel-end heat sensing technology immediately alerts drivers to overheating wheel-ends so that drivers can take preventive action to avoid damage.
  • Tires are the top reason for costly service calls, many of which can be attributed to simple under inflation. MTIS virtually eliminates those calls.
