BorgWarner to Supply Fan Drives for Commercial Trucks
The companyâ€™s electronically controlled Visctronic fan drives operate only when needed and at the appropriate speed, freeing up engine power and contributing to better fuel economy.
The Visctronic fan drives are the combination of BorgWarnerâ€™s viscous technology with precise electronic control. The fan drive communicates with the engineâ€™s electronic control unit to continuously determine the engineâ€™s cooling needs, with specifically calibrated software.
The Patented fluid-actuated valves and high-speed reservoirs respond quickly for accurate control, delivering just the right amount of cooling when it is needed. As the fan drive responds directly to the engineâ€™s cooling needs, the average fan speed is lower. As a self-contained unit, the fan drive requires no service or maintenance.
Daniel CasaSanta, president and general manager of BorgWarner Thermal Systems, said: â€œTo meet stringent emissions regulations, todayâ€™s heavy-duty commercial truck engines run at higher temperatures, making cooling systems a critical engine component. BorgWarnerâ€™s Visctronic fan drives respond directly to engine demands, delivering precise cooling to keep truck fleets running more efficiently.
â€œWith BorgWarner Kysor on/off fan drives already standard equipment on these engines, we are pleased to expand our business with Freightliner by offering truck fleets the option to improve fuel economy and increase horsepower with BorgWarner Visctronic fan drives.â€
BorgWarner Thermal Systems is a designer and supplier of components and systems for thermal management, designed to improve engine cooling, increase fuel economy and reduce emissions.
