Meritor Inc. and Pressure Systems International announced that Talbert Manufacturing Inc., a producer of heavy-haul trailers and specialized transportation equipment, has chosen the Meritor Tire Inflation System by PSI as its preferred automatic tire inflation system.
MTIS by PSI is engineered to be 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. The system is designed to add life to tires, increase fuel efficiency and safety, maximize recap potential and keep trailers on the road.
It is an automatic system with constant air pressure available when needed; the rotary union is the only moving part in the entire system, which helps reduce maintenance. The patented ThermAlert option is designed to warn drivers of excessive wheel end heat, which helps avoid trailer fires or wheel end damage.
“Talbert has a well-deserved reputation for building quality trailers, and we are certainly pleased they have chosen MTIS by PSI as a value-added option for their customers,” says Walter Sherbourne, national sales manager, Trailer Products North America, Meritor.
MTIS by PSI also helps keep tires properly inflated, which improves tire maintenance management, trailer up-time and bottom line ROI. MTIS is compatible with the Meritor Wabco PLC Display for tractor-trailer communications, as well as other telematics devices.
“Talbert’s recognition that the premier automatic tire inflation system they can offer their customers is MTIS by PSI confirms to us that we are producing the best, most reliable and efficient system in the industry,” says Steve Robinson, director of OEM sales and dealer programs for PSI. “We appreciate the support of this fine company.”
