Espar offers three new anti-idling heating systems

Anti-idling technology manufacturer Espar Heater Systems has introduced three new products: The Hybernator-On Frame, the Hybernator-In Frame and the Baire Necessary System.

“We’ve taken what our customers have asked us, and we’ve made changes to accommodate that,” said John Bishop, vice president of sales for Espar.

According to Bishop, some of the benefits of these innovative systems are idling reduction, fuel savings (of up to $35 per day), local and regional legislation compliance, and engine and component wear reduction. Anti-idling systems will also help to lower the country’s oil dependence and to get a cleaner environment, Bishop said.

The Hybernator-On Frame system uses the California Air Resources Board-approved Hydronic 5 heater to provide engine-off heat to the cab, the engine and the fuel system; circulates engine coolant; and allows quick starts in the coldest environments.

The Hybernator-In Frame system “is based on the On-Frame system, but enables the installation of the unit between the frame rails without drilling,” said Espar’s Vice President of Marketing and Communications John Dennehy.

Although the third system, the Baire Necessity, also provides engine-off heat to the cab, it does not require the permanent installation of Espar’s CARB-approved Airtronic D2 bunk heater. This window-mounted system can be conveniently transported in the truck or easily moved from one truck to another. Also, “freight terminals can supply them to drivers for temporary no-idle relief,” said Dennehy.

Espar’s heater systems require 12- or 24-volt battery systems and gasoline or diesel as an on-board fuel.
