Aluminum Untitled 1Aluminum radiators, A/C condensers

Kustom Cooling Products’ aluminum radiators and A/C condensers, designed for 2007 and newer U.S. Environmental Protection Agency-compliant engines, are available for Freightliner’s Cascadia, Columbia and Century models, and soon will be available for the Volvo VN, International ProStar and Mack Vision models. The all-aluminum configuration is engineered to accommodate higher operating temperatures and to allow for better absorption of thermal stress, vibration and shock. The lightweight, durable core utilizes a wavy-style fin design – built in a bar-and-plate configuration for both the radiator and A/C condenser – that increases the surface area to facilitate greater cooling capacity, while the smooth fins help reduce clogging due to debris, allowing for easier maintenance. The increased contact area of the fin to the plate also helps increase the core’s strength while providing more uniform control of thermal expansion. The fins also are designed to be less susceptible to bending or laying over.

Lightweight Untitled 1Lightweight landing gears

Jost has designed two lightweight landing gears to help reduce trailer weight without compromising strength. Each is built with an internal gearbox that helps protect the gearing from abuse and moisture intrusion.

The AlumiLightX AX100 Aluminum Hybrid Landing Gear Series, available in inside and outside mount, is rated at 50,000 pounds of lift capacity and 27,000 pounds of side load capacity. The upper leg is manufactured from extruded aluminum and features a heavy-duty reinforced strap for added side load strength, while the lower leg is made from polyester-coated HSLA steel for added corrosion protection.

The UL500 Landing Gear, with a rated lift capacity of 55,000 pounds and a side load capacity of 29,000 pounds, features a reengineered lift nut and HSLA material. Each leg can be outfitted with a grease tube to help reduce maintenance.

Fluorescent Untitled 1Fluorescent leak-detection dye

Tracer’s Dye-Lite TP-3100 fluorescent dye pinpoints leaking engine oil, hydraulic fluid, lubrication fluid, compressor oil and gearbox oil. Add a small amount of the dye to the system and allow it to circulate for several minutes; wherever there is a leak, the dye escapes with the oil and accumulates at the site. Scan the system with an ultraviolet or blue light lamp, and the dye glows a bright yellow color to reveal the location of all leaks.

Obstacle insert sets

Blackhawk’s Obstacle Insert Sets are built around a reverse-ratcheting S-shaped wrench – a design for helping technicians work around obstructions in tight spaces – and include adaptors that let the technician turn several fastener sizes with one wrench body. Each set includes one 8-inch-long wrench body, six flank adaptors and an equal number of box heads. Each flank adaptor is designed to slip into one of the wrench openings, while each box head attaches to its corresponding flank adaptor, allowing the user to change the size of the wrench opening quickly. The wrench body has been engineered so that the interchangeable heads do not reduce torque capacity; once in place, the adaptor transfers torque forces to the wrench body, minimizing stress on the adaptor. Sets are available in fractional (3/8- to 7/8-inch) and metric (10- to 22-millimeter) versions.

Led Int Untitled 1LED interior dome lamp

Federal-Mogul’s high-efficiency LED interior dome lamp is designed to be operated with a wave of the hand, allowing for improved durability and reduced energy use while eliminating the design constraints of mechanical switches. The lamp integrates a capacitive sensor into the vehicle’s overhead console to eliminate the driver’s search for the correct mechanical switch in increasingly crowded consoles and instrument panels. The field sensitivity range can be set to function from 0 to 80 millimeters, and the system can be programmed to provide additional functions and personalization options such as changes to the light’s intensity and color. The lamp has a power requirement of ½-watt and a lens heat of about 100 degrees Fahrenheit.

Tire Pressure Untitled 1Tire pressure monitoring system

Esco’s tire pressure monitoring system is designed to read and record abnormal air loss over a period of time due to a puncture or leak in the tire/rim and also to detect heat buildup in tires. The system is installed inside the wheel/tire cavity in the drop center of the wheel to help prevent damage or theft. A hook-and-go feature allows the driver to hook up to any trailer equipped with the system with no need to register TPMS sensors to the tractor. A gate receiver can collect the data that is stored in the display unit’s memory.

Air Powered Untitled 1Air-powered material handler

AeroGo’s LoadRunner is designed to make it safer for one operator to move loads up to 2,500 pounds by using onboard compressed air to “float” the load across the floor, which reduces friction and requires less effort to move the load. The LoadRunner is designed to assist or replace traditional material handling equipment such as hand trucks, pallet jacks and forklifts. The quiet self-contained emissions-free unit features a low-profile deck design with a 2-inch insertion height and intuitive throttle-style fingertip controls. LoadRunner is suited for manufacturing, cleanrooms, assembly, testing and warehouse applications requiring redundant

and recurring load movement.

Extended transport heating unit

Thermo King’s Heat King 430 series for rail, truck and trailer transport is designed to provide freeze protection for temperature-sensitive cargo such as paint or chemicals through reliable solid-state control components. The unit provides flash-load programming capability and features system diagnostics to help simplify troubleshooting; it also retains error codes indefinitely rather than losing them when the unit is turned off. Return and supply air temperature sensors help provide built-in redundancy so that if one sensor fails, the other provides continued performance. The unit features an impact-resistant rugged battery hold-down, which helps prevent the battery from movement and possible damage due to the shock loading of rail cars. A controller algorithm starts the unit automatically when the coolant drops below 30 degrees Fahrenheit to help ensure easier cold starting and increase battery life.

LED line

Grote has added integrated flange 4-inch stop/tail/turn and dual-system backup lamps to its SuperNova NexGen LED line. The lamps feature a one-piece integrated flange design that mounts directly to the surface of a vehicle, eliminating the need for accessory mounting brackets or grommets. The lighting systems come with a cushioning gasket seal that functions as a shock-absorbing mechanism while helping to keep water and debris from getting behind the lamp. The design also incorporates a hermetic lens-to-housing seal that resists moisture intrusion and component corrosion. The lamps have durable acrylic lenses and housings composed of hard-coated polycarbonate material and are available with hard-shell and male-pin termination options, which allow them to make use of existing pigtails for installation flexibility and retrofitting.
