Evans Cooling Systems Inc., developer of a waterless engine coolant, announced the opening of Fitzgerald Truck Sales in Crossville, Tenn., a full-service facility for converting heavy-duty trucks to Evans waterless coolant. Truck City Service Center, located at 752 Interstate Lane, (phone 866-970-5858), already has a handful of conversions under their belt.
Evans says its waterless coolant enables a diesel engine to safely operate at elevated temperatures, taking advantage of the huge separation between the operating temperature and the high boiling point of the coolant. “You don’t have to address the boiling point because you never get there.” says Mike Tourville of Evans.
Evans says its proprietary waterless engine coolant has a boiling point that is 150 degrees warmer than the operating temperature of most engines, allowing the engine to operate safely at slightly higher temperatures. The company says the lifetime coolant never has to be replaced, and it also offers maintenance benefits by reducing corrosion and cylinder liner cavitation while providing a safer, more environmentally friendly alternative to traditional water-based coolants.
