Green Vehicles Workshop - Espar Heating Systems Presentation

  1. 1. A WORLD OF COMFORT Espar Idle Reduction Solutions Green Vehicles Workshop Solutions for Reducing Idling Time Tom Stencil, Senior Regional Manager
  2. 2. Espar Products, Inc. . Why Do Drivers Idle Diesel Engines? Drivers Idle The Engine: • To Pre-Heat The Engine and Defrost Before Driving • To Make Sure Engine Will Start When Needed • While Waiting in the Cab of Vehicle or Equipment • To Get Heat in the Bunk While Sleeping • From Habits That May Be Hard To Break
  3. 3. Espar Products, Inc. What’s Wrong With Idling? Fleet Expenses Related to Idling Vehicles* Fuel Consumption • Diesel engines consume about one gallon of fuel per hour Maintenance • Idling results in inefficient combustion, increasing soot-load downstream into after treatment • After treatment plugs requiring regeneration, burning more fuel to clean DPF of soot load • Increased regeneration decreases life of catalyst filters costing over $1,000 each Durability –decreased life of these parts • Fan clutch, air compressor, belts, idler pulleys, alternator, water pump, turbo injectors, after treatment exhaust system, air cleaners, and EGR valves *Information from a major engine manufacturer
  4. 4. Espar Products, Inc. Espar makes idle reduction possible! • Espar offers fuel-operated heaters for engine pre-heat & supplemental cabin heat for a wide variety of vehicles and equipment from automotive, trucks, buses, to large construction equipment and military equipment. Use of Espar heaters allow engine pre-heat and drivers to stay warm without prolonged engine idling. Fuel-operated heaters do not require any plug in. These operate with on-board gasoline, diesel, blends, bio-diesel, or natural gas and a small amp draw on the vehicle battery. • ESPAR heaters are listed on the EPA website as an idle reduction solution • ESPAR heaters earned CARB approval California Air Resources Board--industry standard for low emissions ULEVII • Espar’s new controllers, Multi Max F-1000 & Digi Max D-1000 recognized as top ten new products for 2012.
  5. 5. Espar Products, Inc. Idle Reduction Saves Dollars Sleeper Truck Example: – Diesel fuel costs $4 per gallon* – Idling consumes approximately one gallon per hour – Idling for 8 hours per night for heat while driver sleeps – Cost $32 per night to idle the truck (fuel only) – 120 average cold nights per year – $3,840 cost of fuel used to idle one truck per season THE FIGURES MAY CHANGE But the message remains the same IDLE REDUCTION SAVES BIG DOLLARS *US national average diesel $3.95 on 4/14/14 A ‘Fuel Sipper’ – The Espar D2 Bunk heater on medium heat consumes 0.037 gallons per hour = $1.17 of fuel in 8 hours
  6. 6. Espar Products, Inc. • Weighs only 7 pounds and is about the size of a loaf of bread • Has four-speeds and air circulation mode for a wider range of operator comfort • Provides comfort -- maintaining desired warmth, eliminating vibration and engine noise, plus improving air quality. • Up to 7,500 BTU of clean comfortable heat • On medium setting uses only .04 gallon per hour and about as much voltage as a single marker light • CARB Approval (D2, D4 & D5) • Can be serviced without removal from the truck • Reduces the number of APU engine-on hours for cab heat • Air heaters are available for gasoline, diesel, and natural gas (CNG & LNG) Espar -- Airtronic D2 Bunk Heater
  7. 7. Espar Products, Inc. State of the Art Espar Airtronic Bunk Heater Controller • Manually control the operation of the heater – heating the cab to the desired temperature • Buttons to select LVD (low voltage disconnect), run-time limiter, and preventative maintenance scheduler • Diagnostic feature displays short description of fault code • Display LCD screen, 2 LED indicators, and 3 buttons • User-friendly operation with advanced features designed by listening to the ‘voice of the customer’
  8. 8. Espar Products, Inc. • Internal circulating pump provides engine preheat throughout the engines cooling system • No plug-ins required which provides for convenience and flexibility. • Fast advance preheating in 1 to 2 hours -- complete engine warm up for instant vehicle use • Compact and light weight, these systems are easy to install and won’t affect payload • Excellent pre-heating capability for combinations of on-board oils or fluids. • Immediate window defrosting and interior cab warmth • Minimal power consumption which saves on batteries Espar – Hydronic 5 Coolant Heater
  9. 9. Espar Products, Inc. State of the Art Espar Hydronic Controllers • Multi-Max F1000 is best suited to the needs of a fleet • Both controllers able to program up to 4 events per day • Both controllers include diagnostic codes • Both controllers have programmable LVD, Runtime Limiter, and Preventative Maintenance Scheduler • Fleet tested and proven technology with advanced features designed by listening to the ‘voice of the customer’ • Multi-Max F2000 offers an LCD screen and more control for owners/operators
  10. 10. Espar Products, Inc. The GRIP System The GRIP (Governor to Reduce Idle & Pollution) Idle Management System manages the time a vehicle spends idling. GRIP transfers operation from the engine to the battery when idling. It works with the vehicle’s Controller Area Network (CAN) making decisions to shut the engine off then engine on to recharge the batteries. Key Features Interior vehicle temperature and battery voltage monitored & maintained, Options--Espar heater , auxiliary air conditioning , anti-theft Only powers-off the engine while vehicle is in PARK or NEUTRAL gear Vehicle safety systems auxiliary equipment remain active Connecting system to a computer allows diagnostics and analysis Programmable to meet individual fleet needs Easy to Install Recycling program--GRIP can be re-installed in another vehicle Easily mounted, harnesses are clearly marked, Plug-and-Play connection
