Horton introduces DM Advantage Fan Drives
June 2008, TruckingInfo.com - Feature
Horton, Roseville, MN. introduced the new DM Advantage Fan Drives to meet the current and future industry demands for reliable engine cooling, fuel savings and noise reduction.
Offered in on/off and two-speed technologies, the fan drives are engineered for high-heat under-hood applications.
DM Advantage Fan Drives have endured two years of field testing in the highest-heat under-hood applications. The field tests were performed on over 250 trucks, which were driven more than a total of 45 million miles. This level of reliability translates into increased uptime and decreased maintenance costs.
The spring-engaged fan drive keeps engine coolant at a more consistent operating temperature and has increased reliability in high-horsepower applications. It features high torque for turning larger fans, a lighter weight, low parts count for simplicity and a fail-safe design.
The two-speed fan drive alternates between eddy current and spring-actuated cooling for efficient temperature control and faster engine warm-ups in cold weather. It is ideal for vehicles with little or no ram air. While using eddy current, it turns the fan at a lower speed, reducing operating noise, increasing available horsepower for auxiliary systems and minimizes radiator abrasion from dust and debris. When additional cooling is needed, it spring-actuates and runs the fan at full input speed.
