Heat sensor technology integrated into MTIS

Pressure Systems International has announced the development of heat sensor technology integrated into its Meritor Automatic Tire Inflation (MTIS) system. The automatic tire inflation with heat-sensing capabilities available soon from PSI will give a significant audible as well as visual warning to the driver when heat is building up in the wheel end. This allows the fleet to schedule necessary repairs before a potential catastrophic wheel loss.

PSI also has designed a prototype for outboard drive axle automatic tire inflation installed on the company's Technology Tractor and Trailer. The firm uses its patented rotary connection to provide long-life operation. The Technology Tractor and Trailer is outfitted with wheel end computer data recorders that can give a true picture of the dynamics of tire inflation in actual road travel conditions.
