The new Engine Coolant Heater (ECH) series from Racor includes tank-type heaters, battery warming pads, hot pads and related controls. Applications include heavy-duty trucks, off-highway equipment and heavy construction equipment. Racor ECH products maintain necessary engine, battery and component temperatures, thus minimizing component wear and emissions by starting engines at near operating temperature.
