MTIS with ThermALERT now standard/preferred option on CIMC trailers

May 15, 2018
Learn why CIMC reefer trailers and Vanguard dry van trailers now include MTIS with ThermALERT as a standard/preferred option.

The Meritor Tire Inflation System (MTIS) with ThermALERT is now a standard/preferred option on CIMC reefer trailers and Vanguard dry van trailers, according to Meritor Inc (NYSE: MTOR).

“MTIS uses proven technology to minimize total cost of ownership and help keep drivers safe on our highways,” said Dave Pritchard, general manager, Trailer for Meritor. “It’s also quick to service and easy to retrofit.”

More than 8 million fleet tires are protected by MTIS. Almost one in every three trailers built today is specified with the tire inflation system.

According to Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) studies, tire inflation systems extend tire life by 10% and increase fuel economy an average 1.4%. MTIS also decreases maintenance costs due to longer intervals between retreads and less time spent on manual pressure checking and filling.

By preventing underinflation, MTIS helps to reduce the risk of accidents. Standard ThermALERT wheel-end heat sensing technology helps prevent wheel-end failures from heat build-up and warns drivers of overheating.

MTIS is covered by Meritor’s five-year/unlimited-mile parts and one-year/unlimited-mile warranty.

Meritor is a leading global supplier of drivetrain, mobility, braking and aftermarket solutions for commercial vehicle and industrial markets. For further information, visit the company’s website at
