Alternative Fuel Heaters Eliminate the Need to Idle
When temperatures drop, many fleet crew members have to come in early to
get vehicle engines cranking before other workers arrive or trucks are
sluggish until the engine warms up. Now with Aqua-Hot's Work Ready
Single Closed-Circuit heating system, trucks are ready to roll at the
same time as their drivers. Workers no longer need to wait for heat as
the Work Ready Systems eliminate the need to idle the engine, reducing
engine wear, emissions, downtime and slow starts.
By preheating with Aqua-Hot's Work Ready, fleet productivity and
efficiency is increased. Work Ready Systems also remove the need to
bring trucks in overnight, use outlets to plug in block heaters and wait
for hydraulics to heat up. The system's accessories, including
hydraulic heaters, oil pan heaters, cab heaters, thermostats and timers,
allow a high level of flexibility to meet the needs of different
The single, closed-circuit, coolant-based heating system is powered by
natural gas or LP. Work Ready offers simple operation and automatic
timers so users can set times for the engine to start and preheat
without being on the premise. The system operates with very low noise
levels and low emissions.
The Work Ready is powerful enough to provide hydraulic fluid heating,
as well as supplemental cabin heat for the front passengers with
the optional Aqua-Hot Cabin Heater. For natural gas vehicles, the Single
Circuit heater is also capable of warming fuel pressure regulators.
