Meritor has announced that the Meritor Tire Inflation System (MTIS) with ThermAlert is a standard/preferred option on Vanguard dry van and CIMC reefer trailers. MTIS automatically and immediately provides air pressure to any trailer tire should the pressure fall below the desired setting.
In addition, Meritor offers the ThermAlert wheel-end heat sensing technology as standard on its MTIS products. ThermAlert immediately alerts drivers of overheating wheel ends so that drivers can take preventative action to avoid damage.
MTIS is covered by Meritor’s five-year/unlimited-mile parts and one-year/unlimited-mile warranty.
