Jun 1, 2008 12:00 PM
Teleflex Power Systems, a division of Teleflex Inc, has launched a new line of advanced auxiliary cab heaters for heavy-duty trucks. Proheat Air Heaters help truck drivers and fleets significantly reduce engine idling fuel consumption while helping comply with anti-idling regulations.
This diesel-powered air heater supplies heat for in-cab driver comfort during cold weather. Available in either 2- or 4-kilowatt models, the heater reduces fuel consumption by up to 95 percent compared with engine idling, while supplying heat more quietly and efficiently.
Proheat Air includes a remotely mounted control panel with digital display for easy set-up and control of the heater from inside the truck cab. The control panel incorporates advanced timers that allow drivers to start Proheat Air at a specific time so the truck is warm when they arrive. It also allows drivers to specify an ambient temperature inside the cab.
