Pressure Systems International (P.S.I.) is offering an extended warranty on its automatic tire inflation system (ATIS) from five to seven years when used in combination with SKF’s Trouble-Free Operation (TFO) System.

The SKF TFO platform provides OEMs and fleets with unsurpassed flexibility in specifying conventional long-life wheel ends, regardless of the axle and suspension provider, according to P.S.I.  P.S.I. and SKF have worked together to provide the best warranties available in the trailer market by combining their wheel end and automatic tire inflation products. 

Unlike other solutions, the SKF TFO platform provides OEMs with the opportunity to source components as they do today, without requiring unique sourcing and assembly processes. 

“SKF is a global leader in wheel end technology, and we are pleased to work cooperatively with them in developing an option for fleets that demand ATIS and long-life wheel ends with compatible warranties,” stated Steve Miller, P.S.I.’s vice president of engineering.

The SKF TFO platform is available through most trailer OEMs. When the SKF TFO-7 wheel-end configuration is specified for use with the P.S.I. ATIS, P.S.I. will automatically extend its parts coverage to seven years. 

The P.S.I. automatic tire inflation system comes standard with the patented ThermALERT wheel-end high-temperature warning system. The ThermALERT feature has proven to be a highly reliable and cost-effective way to warn of a pending wheel-end thermal event.
