Cabin Pressurization and Air Filtration
The indoor air quality is critical to providing a healthy and productive work environment as operators spend a great deal of time in the cab of their equipment. Cab pressurizers are highly effective at removing particulate as well as vapours and fumes and are manufactured to withstand the rigours of the harshest off-road and mining environments.  
For this application, we added a solution consisting of a pressurizer housing, pre-cleaner and three stage filter element, which has been tested by independent third party labs, certifying the systems provide HEPA (99.97% efficiency @ 0.3 Microns) read more here. The combination delivers clean, filtered air to the #890131 A/C & Heater via the fresh air intake.

A/C Compressor Check

Wondering why your system has a low refrigerant charge?
It could be because of a leak that needs repair, or a high-side blockage that limits refrigerant flow to the compressor. Diagnose those problems first, and if not resolved, perform this simple 4 step A/C compressor function check, before you remove the compressor from a vehicle. 

Service Tip: Remember when you open the A/C system, you should change your filter drier to remove contaminants and minimize damaging moisture in the system.
AC Compressor - The heart of your air conditioning system.
4 step tech tip
1. Is the compressor rotation smooth? With the vehicle off, turn the compressor shaft with a 14-mm socket. If you feel grinding or hanging as you rotate the shaft, there may be broken components within the compressor. If the rotation is smooth, move on to Step 2.
 
2. Is the coil getting more than 11.5 volts? Take a reading with the engine running and the clutch engaged. If there’s insufficient voltage, get to work on that. Otherwise, move on to Step 3.
 
3. Is the coil resistance between 2.8 and 4.4 ohms for a 12 vdc system and 11.2 to 17.6 ohms for a 24 vdc system? Any resistance outside these ranges will prevent the clutch from engaging or will cause used circuits to open. If the resistance measures correctly, continue to Step 4.
 
4. Is the compressor able to produce 350 psig or more? The compressor should be able to build over 350 psig on the high side with the condenser airflow restricted, and also able to pull the suction side down to 5 psig when the TXV is closed. If needed, the technician can close the TXV by chilling the charge head using a can of dust-off held upside-down.This will temporarily freeze the TVV charge head and cause it to close. If the compressor is operating correctly, the suction pressure will drop below 5 psig.

Air Filtration solutions

Arctic Traveler Canada has designed Air Filtration Solutions to ensure vehicle operators are breathing clean cabin air while on the job. Innovating at all levels of Filtration, ATC produces air cleaning systems that continuously protect operators. 

Arctic Traveler Canada offers two different Cab Pressurizers or Cab Filtration Solutions. Both systems continually supply fresh filtered air into the cab creating a positive pressure inside a properly sealed cab. This over-pressure pushes clean air out leaks in the positive pressure side of the system, rather than allowing contaminated air to enter. The indoor air quality is critical to providing a healthy and productive work environment and whether it’s agriculture, construction, mining or waste management, operators spend a great deal of time in the cab of their equipment. 

Cab pressurizers are highly effective at removing particulate as well as vapours and fumes. The filter element can also be customized to target specific contaminates present where your equipment is working. A differential pressure gauge or electronic pressure control system are available to measure the difference in pressure between the inside and outside of the cab.

Cab Filtration Solutions

The Cabaire system which incorporates Enginaire’s proven air precleaner,with a patented in-line filter to make a highly efficient pressurizer that ensures clean filtered air.
Cabaire
™ cab pressurization unit (ECP) combines their proven air precleaner with our proven VLR air filter system to give you a very efficient self contained filter air pump. As air is drawn into the air conditioner, the Cabaire removes the large dirt particles with the built in centrifugal precleaner.

The air is then filtered and blown into the air conditioner intake duct with our self contained air pump. All in a very small space. By having a positive pressure on the incoming air chamber, the air conditioner can do it’s job easier with less power required. Even when the air conditioner is not being used, the clean air from the ECP is blown into the cab creating a positive pressure which prevents dirt from entering the cab through leaks in it’s doors and other spaces.

Enginaire’s Cabaire™ uses it’s own high pressure air pump not a fan to deliver a high volume of dual filtered air into your enclosure which then has a positive air pressure on the inside. When the enclosure has a positive pressure, dirt is forced out of the doors, windows, and other unsealed areas instead of being drawn into the enclosure. You stay clean, your electronics and other instruments stay clean, while you “breathe easy”.

So whether you’re looking for a solution for smaller applications like Tow motors, Agriculture or gigantic machinery in Mining operations, Arctic Traveler Canada has a solution for your application. Call or visit us today for more information and see what 60 years of excellence can do for you.

Cabin Air Filters – Reduce dust, dirt and allergens – A relatively new feature on the automotive scene, the cabin air filter is often overlooked in regular vehicle maintenance. This filter is just as important to the passengers as the engine air filter is to the vehicle and a likely cause of “A/C Not Blowing Cold Air“. A cabin filter processes the air that enters the passenger compartment via the vehicle’s heating and air conditioning system, increasing passenger comfort by trapping particulates, pollen, and other irritants.

Blower Motors by Make

Blower Motors and Wheels are integral parts in the delivery and circulation of air in your vehicles Air Conditioning system. An Electric DC motor is used to circulate warm and cool air inside the cabin and/or sleeper. The Blower Motor “blows” and circulates the warm air from the fins of the heater core or cools the air at it passes from the fins of the evaporator.
Without these components, the hot or cold air produced by your air conditioning system won’t circulate to reach your vehicle’s interior cabin and or sleeper.
