Meritor SimilAir saves on weight, upkeep
Jul 1, 2006 12:00 PM
ArvinMeritor's Commercial Vehicle Systems (CVS) business is offering its new Meritor SimilAir composite trailer spring for linehaul and general service applications.
The composite spring assembly is more durable and provides weight and cost savings. Suspensions equipped with this new composite spring weigh as much as 240 pounds less than other air suspensions, and more than 100 pounds less than mechanical suspensions. Meritor SimilAir also requires less maintenance than air suspensions, and is more corrosion-resistant.
A Meritor SimilAir composite spring-equipped suspension offers advantages including:
No air springs, shock absorbers, or leveling valves.
Drive-home capability — reduces potential for roadside maintenance.
Mechanical suspension performance at the dock (ie, no dock walk).
Reduces unwanted vibration and noise.
Meritor SimilAir is a joint effort between ArvinMeritor and Liteflex LLC. Contact email@example.com for more details.
