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.
