The Meritor Tire Inflation System by PSI recently was selected by Pavestone Co. as its tire inflation system on trailers recently purchased from Transcraft Corp. The order included Transcraft’s 100,000th trailer, a TL-2000H 45-foot-by-102-inch tandem slider, and was delivered to Pavestone during a celebration marking the event.
Pavestone says it specifies MTIS on all of its trailer purchases because of the cost savings experienced using the system. MTIS, designed to constantly monitor air pressure and maintain proper tire inflation, maximizes tire life and reduces maintenance costs associated with underinflated tires, according to Meritor. Pavestone says it sees a substantial fuel savings since MTIS allows every trailer tire to maintain the manufacturer’s tire inflation recommendation.
MTIS, according to Meritor, is a robust, simple design easily installed on any type of trailer, including van, liquid tank, logger, flatbed, chassis, livestock, platform, drop frame, dump, deep drop, doubles, dry bulk, reefer, auto transporter and military.
