In an effort to meet U.S. EPA 2010 and European Euro V diesel engine emissions standards, Horton, Inc. has introduced its Stratis viscous fan drives, which the company says are designed to cool higher-horsepower, hotter-running engines through the engine’s electronic control unit.
According to Horton, the viscous fan drives’ integral fan speed sensor provides closed-loop control capabilities and the magnetic design speeds reaction time for improved modulation and cooling. The drives have a maximum torque capability of 2,225 in./lbs. and are available for a variety of fan sizes and with various mounting options.
“This product is the result of years of analysis and testing to produce cooling solutions for the significantly hotter engines that result from reduced-emission regulations,” said Jeff Lindgren, Horton senior vp of sales & marketing.
