Ingersoll Axle (IMT), a provider of customized axles and suspension systems for on and off road applications, has selected the Meritor Tire Inflation System (MTIS by P.S.I) as its preferred automatic tire inflation system (ATIS) on its line of trailer axles.

IMT trailer axles can be specified at various levels, such as bare or dressed axle, to accommodate the needs of its customers, the company said. This includes the availability of MTIS by PSI on straight and steerable axles.

“This was an easy choice for us to make,” said Steve McManus, director of business development, IMT. “MTIS by P.S.I is the global leader in automatic tire systems with a proven record of delivering value to our mutual customers. It’s the easiest system to install and maintain  ΜΆ  and has the widest range of applications, including our steerable axles.”

MTIS by PSI is an automatic system that delivers constant air pressure when needed, so interaction  is not required by the driver or maintenance manager. The patented ThermALERT option warns drivers of excessive wheel end heat which helps avoid trailer fires or wheel end damage.
