Auxiliary Heater – Underseat High Performance

This underseat high performance auxiliary heater ( 082210000 ) is ideal for applications that require a small footprint (13.70 L x 9.21 H x 9.21 W ) but demand high performance.  With 42,000 BTU’s, it provides significant heating to ensure optimum operator comfort.

Auxiliary heaters are an additional heating component installed in vehicles to provide supplementary heat. It serves as a backup to the main heating system and allows the engine to warm up faster in cold weather. Heat is then transferred via coolant that circulates through the vehicle’s heating system. The heater may be activated manually or automatically when the engine coolant temperature drops below a set level.

Auxiliary heaters are common in diesel vehicles since diesel engines can take longer to warm up in cold temperatures. The extra heat provided by the auxiliary heater allows the passenger cabin to reach a comfortable temperature faster when first starting the vehicle. Some auxiliary heaters have electric fans to help distribute the hot air through the vehicle’s ventilation system. More advanced designs integrate with the climate control system for fully automated operation.
Overall, auxiliary heaters are an effective way to supplement the main heating system and provide fast warm up times in cold weather. With an auxiliary heater, drivers don’t have to wait as long for the engine to warm up before getting heat inside the cabin.

Air Filtration & Pressurization

Air filtration and pressurization are key components of HVAC systems that help maintain indoor air quality by removing airborne contaminants using filters. Pressurization helps control the direction of airflow and prevent infiltration of outdoor pollutants.

We offer two different Air Filtration & Pressurization 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 vapors 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 system incorporates Enginaire’s proven air pre-cleaner, with a patented in-line filter to make a highly efficient pressurizer that ensures clean filtered air. The unit combines a pre-cleaner 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 components remove large dirt particles with the built in centrifugal pre-cleaner.

The air is then filtered and blown into the air conditioner intake duct with our self contained air pump. 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. This 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.

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 as 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. We offer solutions for Freightliner, International, Kenworth, Mack, Peterbilt, Sterling, Volvo and Western Star.

Cabin Air Filters

Cabin Air Filters – Increase A/C efficiency and Reduce dust, dirt and allergens
A relatively new feature in the heavy duty industry, the cabin air filters are often overlooked in regular vehicle maintenance. That’s unfortunate because the cabin air 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“. 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.

For people with allergies and other sensitivities to airborne agents, the cabin filter represents a significant advance. Replacing the cabin air filter at the recommended interval or sooner, especially in areas of high particulate, allows the A/C system to run at optimal efficiency and passengers to breathe cleaner, fresher air, which makes any journey more enjoyable.

A/C Preventative Maintenance

When it comes to air conditioning, a good preventative maintenance program will increase operating time and save money by identifying concerns before they become problems. Once the hot weather arrives, implementing planned maintenance allows you to schedule repairs instead of reacting to sudden unexpected issues. A/C filters, coils, and fins require regular maintenance to ensure optimum performance and neglecting necessary maintenance results in a steady decline in performance and increased energy use. 

Filters

Clogged, dirty filters restrict airflow and reduce a system’s efficiency. When airflow is restricted, the air that bypasses the filter will carry dirt directly into the evaporator coil and reduce the coil’s heat-absorbing abilities. To ensure efficiency, routinely clean or replace filters.

Coils

The condenser and evaporator coils collect dirt over time but a clean filter helps to keep the evaporator performing well. Debris reduces air flow, insulates the coil and reduces its ability to absorb heat. Being exposed to the elements, it is easy to see the dirt collecting on the fins. Cleaning the coil fins and removing any debris around the coil will ensure optimal performance.

Coil Fins

The aluminum fins on evaporator and condenser coils are easily bent and can block airflow through the coil. Air conditioning wholesalers sell a tool called a “fin comb” that will comb these fins back into their original condition.

Remember to always use caution when performing preventative system maintenance, as ambient conditions (heat load) will increase refrigerant hose temperatures and don’t forget, having the right quality parts on hand makes all the difference.

A/C System – How a simple inspection can save

RedDot

Tech Tips From RedDot

Heavy-duty A/C system components rarely fail. In fact, the system fails the components because of contaminated refrigerant oil and general lack of preventive maintenance.

One of the best ways to improve uptime and reduce maintenance costs for the customer is to promote a basic visual check of major A/C components, hose connections, and fittings at regular intervals, like with every engine-oil change. This inspection routine has another benefit: it can generate business for your parts and service department. 

Many A/C components are consumable items. It’s more cost-effective to replace them than to repair them. So preventive maintenance is an opportunity to sell a range of OEM-quality all-makes replacement parts for the air conditioner. Here are some examples:

1. RECEIVER DRIERS

The receiver-drier’s moisture indicator provides a quick visual cue about the refrigerant’s condition: a blue dot means the refrigerant is dry; pink, white, or grey indicates acid or moisture in the system. Checking the sight glass during an oil change or any scheduled maintenance procedure means the truck can receive necessary service while it’s there in the shop, before moisture and acid damage critical A/C components and lead to a failure on the road.

2. CONDENSERS

Dust, bugs, feathers, and other debris collect on the face of fins and tubes and act as a thermal barrier, making it hard for the condenser to shed heat. Condensers also fail because of vibration, which can cause hose connections to come loose and fatigue the condenser tubing adjacent to the fittings. Every 12 months, the condenser should be cleaned (taking special care not to bend or damage the fins) and the hose connections securely clamped.

3. COMPRESSOR/CLUTCH ASSEMBLY

The compressor provides the mechanical energy to circulate refrigerant and manipulate the pressure inside the system. It’s the heart of the A/C system, and the No. 1 HVAC maintenance expense item. Excessive noise and poor cooling performance are the two most obvious symptoms that a compressor is failing. Replacing the compressor involves pulling down the system, which adds refrigerant recovery and recharge to the repair cost.

Next time you see, “A/C won’t blow cold air” on a work order, note that the repair and downtime probably could have been avoided with a simple visual inspection of the truck’s air conditioning system. Any time you change the truck’s oil, check the A/C.
