ArvinMeritor has announced that the Meritor Tire Inflation System (MTIS) by Pressure Systems International (PSI) has been selected as Timpte Inc.’s preferred automatic tire-inflation system. Timpte, located in David City, Neb., is a producer in the bulk commodity semi-trailer market. The company is celebrating 125 years in operation.
The MTIS by PSI system keeps tires properly inflated while reducing downtime and total operating costs. The system works by routing air from the existing trailer supply through a control box and into each axle. The axles carry air through a rotary union assembly, which is the only moving part in the system, reducing maintenance requirements. The rotary union distributes air to each tire as needed, maintaining proper tire inflation. Proper tire inflation improves fuel economy delivering increased profitability.
