Meritor WABCO launches reman air dryer line

Updated Oct 7, 2015

Meritor announces the launch of genuine Meritor WABCO remanufactured air dryers that are designed to deliver the sustained durability and performance of new OEM parts at a reduced price.

Beginning this month, Meritor will start selling remanufactured System Saver 1200 family air dryers for heavy- and medium-duty commercial trucks. Each industry-leading System Saver air dryer is remanufactured with genuine Meritor WABCO components and tested to ensure OE quality and performance, the company says.

“Remanufactured Meritor WABCO air dryers are a cost-effective option that doesn’t sacrifice original equipment manufacturer quality,” says Steve Hampson, president and general manager for Meritor WABCO. “We have the complete product knowledge, replacement parts and test capabilities required to build reliable and high-quality parts.”

When using remanufactured products, customers should make sure that they meet OE quality standards, Hampson adds. Using recommended OE parts and processes reduces the risk of diminishing functionality, water downstream and damage to vehicle systems such as brakes, engines and transmissions, MeritorWABCO says.

Cartridges are a vital factor when considering air dryer performance and quality. Meritor WABCO remanufactured air dryers are packaged with the same OEM-approved cartridges as used on production vehicles. Meritor WABCO air dryer systems have the drying performance specified by OEs, which helps to decrease the risk of water damage to internal components, the company says.

The addition of genuine Meritor WABCO remanufactured air dryers supports Meritor’s goal of providing cost-effective aftermarket solutions to customers with vehicles of various ages, the company says.

Remanufactured with OE authenticity at WABCO’s award-winning Reman Solutions facility in Rochester Hills, Mich., Meritor WABCO’s remanufactured System Saver air dryers are designed to meet virtually any vocational requirement. Compact and lightweight designs offer easy installation, the company says.

“Adding these products to the Meritor WABCO remanufacturing portfolio, brought to the market by Meritor, furthers our goal of providing cost effective remanufactured solutions,” says Tim Bauer, director of Remanufacturing for Meritor. “Remanufacturing has positive environmental impact because recycling components prevents waste of used materials and allows their continued usage by the customer.”

Hampson adds, “Returning used cores helps Meritor WABCO ensure continuation of the remanufacturing process that keeps costs low for end-users.”

Meritor WABCO System Saver air dryer cores will be collected through Meritor’s core center. Details for collection of cores are available at
