Meritor Inc. and Pressure Systems International announced that Vanguard National Trailer Corp., a producer of dry van and refrigerated trailers, has chosen MTIS by PSI as its preferred automatic tire inflation system. MTIS by PSI is designed to keep tires properly inflated, helping to improve tire maintenance management, trailer uptime and bottom-line return on investment.
“Meritor has partnered with Vanguard as they have built their share of the market by manufacturing a quality trailer,” says Greg Smith, Meritor’s national account manager for trailer products. “We are pleased to add MTIS to the Meritor products that Vanguard offers its customers either through standard specification or preferred status.”
MTIS by PSI is designed 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 truly automatic system is designed to provide constant air pressure available when needed; the patented rotary union is the only moving part in the entire system, helping to reduce maintenance, and the patented ThermAlert option notifies drivers of excessive wheel end heat.
“For Vanguard customers that choose to add automatic tire inflation systems to their trailers, this product provides them with a reliable value-added feature that will certainly benefit their fleet,” says Steve Robinson, director of OEM sales and dealer programs for PSI.
