New line of hubcaps is PSI-compatible
Jul 1, 2008 12:00 PM
SKF has introduced four new PSI-compatible hubcaps to its wheel-end Scotseal product offering. The new hubcaps are compatible with the Meritor Tire Inflation System (MTIS) by Pressure Systems Inc (PSI), an automatic tire inflation system. MTIS uses compressed air from a trailer's air system to inflate any tire that falls below a specified pre-set pressure. The system ultimately increases tire life, fuel efficiency, and safety.
The new hubcaps incorporate the same leakproof technology built into SKF's Scotseal TF hubcap product line. SKF TF hubcaps are manufactured of lightweight Dupont Zytel that resists impact damage, extreme weather conditions, road salt, and ultraviolet radiation or ozone.The PSI insert is incorporated into the hubcap's fusion-bonded window, which ensures a leakproof characteristic. Additionally, dual side fill plugs offer convenience that other hubcaps do not offer.
