Thermal Storage APU

Thermal Storage APU Product Image

Webasto Product North America’s BlueCool Hybrid Thermal Storage APU has a shore power option that allows the use of electricity from a land-based source to produce cool air indefinitely and also deliver AC power for standard household appliances without having to use an inverter or the vehicle’s electrical system. This helps significantly reduce or eliminate engine idling without compromising driver comfort or convenience, says the company. The BlueCool Hybrid uses a standard 120 v AC power source. A high-efficiency pump circulates coolant through the storage core and an air handler (heat exchanger) in the cab. Four quiet, efficient fans in the air handler draw in warm bunk air and pass it across the exchanger. The air gives up its heat to the chilled mixture circulating through the exchanger and returns to the bunk through adjustable openings on the air handler. The APU runs independently of the OE air-conditioning system and can charge and discharge simultaneously while connected to shore power.

'NITE' Day Cab No-Idle System

Product From Bergstrom Climate Control Systems

Bergstrom Inc. has developed a new battery-powered air conditioning system, designed specifically for day cabs. The NITE® Day Cab No-Idle System was developed in response to growing demand for solutions to reduce idling in the day cab industry, as well as increasing Federal, State and local regulations against truck idling. The NITE Day Cab No-Idle System utilizes one or two deep-cycle absorbed glass mat (AGM) batteries to power the air conditioning system. This keeps the driver cool when the truck's engine is turned off. To assure there is sufficient battery power to start the truck, the starting batteries are protected from discharge by a separator. The system uses the same technology as Bergstrom's popular NITE Plus unit, but is installed as a split system. The compressor and evaporator are installed between the truck's seats, and the condenser is mounted remotely to the exterior of the cab.
