Meritor and Pressure Systems International announced that Dorsey Trailer has chosen its tire inflation system as standard equipment on its trailers manufactured at its 80,000 sq. ft. facility in Elba, AL.

The Meritor Tire Inflation System (MTIS) by PSI automatically maintains proper tire inflation by providing constant air pressure when needed. It includes the TherrmAlert option which warns drivers of excessive wheel end heat to help avoid trailer fires or wheel end damage.

“Our choice of MTIS by PSI is pretty simple, it offers our customers quantifiable value which is important to us,” said Trey Gary, president of Dorsey Trailer. “Every trailer that we manufacture should meet or exceed customer expectations once they get it on the road and we know from experience that MTIS does not disappoint.”

By maintaining proper tire inflation, fleets will see reduced maintenance, improved trailer up-time, and improved tire life.

Dorsey manufactures composite/steel flatbed, dry vans, reefers, electronics vans and deep drop furniture vans.
