Webasto Thermo & Comfort North America officially introduced its new Air Top Evo models at the 2015 Work Truck Show this week in Indianapolis.
The new Air Top Evo 40 and 55 offer greater comfort, safety and heating capacity for various applications on medium-duty and heavy-duty vehicles, the company says.
According to Webasto, the Air Top Evo 40 and 55 incorporate an automatic cold-start system, providing up to 10 percent more heating power to cabins and cargo spaces than previous models. The new Evo models also are quieter and have lower power consumption due to state-of-the-art modern controls and a new fuel pump design. With low power consumption and higher efficiency these new heaters are ideal for continuous heating, Webasto says. Multiple heaters can be combined in a modular fashion to allow for heating larger areas as needed.
Webasto says the Air Top Evo 40 and 55 feature an automatic altitude adjustment as well, ideal for high elevations and leading to optimal operation up to elevations of 7,218 ft. above sea level (2,200m).
The company says customers can choose between the Air Top Evo 40, which has a maximum heat output of 13,650 BTU/h, and the Air Top Evo 55, which has a maximum heat output of 18,800 BTU/h. Both heaters are available in diesel (12/24 volt) or gasoline (12 volt) models.
