INDIANAPOLIS. The next-generation of air heaters from Webasto Thermo & Comfort North America were introduced at the NTEA Work Truck Show here. The Air Top Evo 40 and 55 offer greater comfort, safety and heating capacity for various applications on medium duty and commercial vehicles, the company said.

The systems incorporate an automatic cold-start system, providing up to 10% more heating power to cabins and cargo spaces than previous models. They are also 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 noted.

Multiple heaters can be combined in a modular fashion to allow for heating larger areas as needed.

There is also an automatic altitude adjustment that leads to optimal operation up to elevations of 7,218 ft. above sea level.

The Air Top Evo 40 has a maximum heat output of 13,650 BTU/h while the Air Top Evo 55 has a maximum heat output of 18,800 BTU/h. Both heaters are available in diesel (12/24 volt) or gasoline (12 volt) models.
