Vanguard, CIMC make Meritor system standard

Posted: May 15, 2018

The Meritor Tire Inflation System (MTIS) with ThermAlert has been made a standard option on Vanguard dry van and CIMC reefer trailers.

Almost one in three trailers now comes with the tire inflation system, Meritor says, noting that it monitors more than 8 million tire positions.

Using tire inflation systems can extend tire life by 10% and increase fuel economy 1.4%, studies by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency have found.

ThermAlert monitors the heat of wheel ends, to identify a source of potential failures.
