ThermAlert, a technology that detects elevated wheel-end operating temperatures, is now available as an option with the Meritor Tire Inflation System (MTIS) by PSI for new trailers assembled with Meritor prepped TN, TQ and P-spindle profile axles.
A prepped axle includes beam, brakes, plugs, and stators factory-assembled by ArvinMeritor.
ThermAlert sensors are designed to detect increased wheel end temperatures and alert drivers to stop for repairs before serious damage can occur. This early warning helps reduce the potential risk, cost and downtime associated with wheel loss, wheel end failures, and trailer fires, PSI noted.
Aftermarket MTIS systems with the ThermAlert feature will be available in the future.
PSI, a maker of automatic tire inflation systems, sells and markets its product through ArvinMeritor as the Meritor Tire Inflation System by PSI.
