Cool Technology For Stage 5
By Mike Brezonick27 March 2019
Engine cooling specialist Horton will showcase its new LCX Series fan drives and HM1400 fan at Bauma 2019 in Hall A4, Stand 245. The new products are part of a larger portfolio designed to help European off-road customers meet increasingly stringent Stage 5 emissions regulations.
The LCX Series is based on Horton’s variable-speed design which rotates the fan at a wider range of speeds to match engine cooling demands more precisely. Additionally, the LCX Series incorporates Horton’s proprietary Cold-Start Disengagement (CSD) system, which is engineered to disengage the drive more quickly than conventional systems, providing faster cab warm-up, reduced fuel consumption and emissions, decreased noise and minimal parasitic draw on the engine for increased working horsepower.
The new Horton HM1400 fan incorporates a computer-optimized blade design, capable of moving more air with less parasitic draw than conventional fans. It is available in a variety of blade counts and center disk diameters to allow use of virtually any pilot or bolt circle. When combined with LCX Series Fan Drives, these lightweight fans can help off-road customers meet Stage 5 emissions requirements, Horton said.
At Bauma, Horton will also display:
– The heavy-duty RCV1000 and RCV2000 variable-speed drives specifically designed for mining haul trucks and related heavy-duty, off-road equipment where high torque levels are required to turn large cooling fans up to 96 in.
– The HTEC fan series, also targeting rigorous off-highway applications, that utilizes a molded, thermoset design to deliver efficient blade designs with minimum blade deflection for maximum efficiency.
– The RCV250 variable-speed drive, a compact, maintenance-free fan drive suitable for turning fans up to 43 in.
