"In long-distance transport, internal combustion engines will continue to play a major role in the future. Our goal is to offer technical innovations and products that contribute to clean mobility in the commercial vehicle sector," says Dr Thomas Waldhier, COO of the Division Exhaust Technology. At the fair, Eberspaecher will present products featuring multiple system layouts to effectively reduce pollutant emissions for commercial vehicles, meeting the strictest regulations. The company offers exhaust-gas aftertreatment systems that are designed to meet customer-driven application requirements for all markets. Whether the 1Box systems, single path systems like U-shape and S-type or Inline systems: Eberspaecher has solid experience in the broad spectrum of exhaust-gas aftertreatment systems.
Larger operating window with the next-generation tunnel mixer technology
Based on the CLEPA award-winning tunnel mixer technology, the operating window of the mixing device has been extended with respect to urea conversion performance, while maintaining all other performance criteria on benchmark level. This allows Eberspaecher to offer single path systems such as Inline or U-shape for a wider number of applications, providing benefits in terms of serviceability and cost.
New exhaust manifold for medium and heavy trucks
With the Eberspaecher exhaust manifold for commercial vehicles, the leading specialist in Diesel aftertreatment offers another development for complying with current and future emission guidelines, especially those concerning low-NOx requirements. A lower thermal mass ensures fast catalyst light-off for improved emission performance compared to classic casts. The innovative air-gap design has already proven itself in passenger car applications and the technology has now been implemented for use in medium and heavy duty trucks.
Comfort and safety in colder months
Especially in colder months, a pleasant temperature is extremely important for the driver´s comfort and safety during the journey – including breaks and sleep times. Pre-heaters from Eberspaecher are the perfect solution for engine-independent heat in the driver´s cab. Eberspaecher Climate Control Systems will showcase its current generation of Airtronic and Hydronic families of high-performance air and water heaters. The second generation of the fuel operated Airtronic is a reliable companion in all kinds of commercial vehicles. The stepless heat output control means that the air heater operates both efficiently and quietly and, thanks to the brushless motor, has a long lifespan of 5,000 hours for the Commercial variants. The third generation of the Hydronic water heater impresses not only through an increase in heat output efficiency but also with its compact and robust design. With their wide range of outputs, the Hydronic S3 Economy and the Hydronic S3 Commercial featuring the 5.6 kW power variant are suitable for many different vehicles, from small delivery vans to heavy-duty trucks. The pre-heaters can be controlled using the permanently installed and intuitive EasyStart Pro operating element. The timer function allows the required starting time and heating duration to be set in advance. The display and an LED color ring around the operating button indicate the current function status.
Another addition to the product range is the TrimLine series from Eberspaecher Kalori: Suitable air diffusers for every application ensure efficient air distribution in the passenger compartment for a pleasant climate at all times. Thanks to their standard dimensions, the air vents can be easily integrated into the dashboard.
