Showcasing Waterless Coolant at Mid-America Truck Show
Sharon, Conn., - March 9, 2010 - Evans Cooling Systems, Inc. (www.evanscooling.com), patent holder and manufacturer of the ONLY commercial waterless engine coolants, will showcase its waterless engine coolant technology at the Mid-America Truck show, continuing awareness-building initiatives started in 2009 targeting the heavy duty diesel market.
As part of an effort to bring their waterless coolant technology - long known and accepted in the high performance and racing industry - to the heavy duty diesel engine market, Evans took significant steps in 2009 to raise its visibility. The company completed a website redesign, increased tradeshow presence, made changes in packaging, and aggressively pursued testing of their product by truck fleets owners and other diesel engine users.
The SAE Type II Fuel Consumption Test and findings from fleet fuel economy studies with companies like Veolia and the Pioneer Valley Transit Authority, have proven fuel savings under all conditions, ranging from 3 to over 8%. Results from the John Deere Cavitation Test using Evans Waterless HDTC were far superior to those from all water-based formulations. Changes to packaging in 2010 include a one gallon container (in addition to the 275 gallon totes, 55 gallon drums and 5 gallon pails) making it convenient for any application.
The new website (www.evanscooling.com) features fuel saving strategies when using Evans waterless cooling technology. The website changes have resulted in more than 3,500 worldwide visitors monthly to the site.
Evans also took an active role in industry events, attending WasteCon 2009, SAE COMVEC, PRI and the recent TMC annual meeting. Each of these events generated significant interest in Evans' waterless cooling technology.
As a result of these and other initiatives, Evans saw sales increase 30% globally in 2009 over 2008.
For 2010, Evans plans to aggressively continue market penetration and awareness. On March 25-27, at the Mid-America Truck Show (booth # 14252) Evans will demonstrate the company's patented waterless coolant technology, designed for vehicles and equipment powered by heavy duty diesel engines. Evans Waterless HDTC offers advantages not found in any water-based coolant. The high boiling point of 375⁰F is 150 degrees warmer than the operating temperature of the engine. This separation eliminates vapor, permitting engines to operate safely at higher than conventional temperatures and enabling fuel saving strategies that include higher temperature thermostats and reduced fan-on time.
"We're pleased with the progress we've made in the heavy duty diesel market in 2009 and look to build on this in the year ahead with our presence at industry events like the Mid-America Truck Show," said Jack Evans, President of Evans Cooling. "In 2010, we plan to continue our efforts to further penetrate the heavy duty diesel engine market, expanding our distribution agreements and service center and conversion center network to better support customers."
