Webasto Introduces Polar Cab TS Engine-Off Cabin Cooling System for Off-Highway Equipment

Webasto launched the new Webasto Polar Cab TS engine-off cabin cooling system providing on-demand cooling during down time. It results in fuel savings, reduced idle time, increased productivity and operator safety and comfort. Webasto's Polar Cab TS engine-off cabin cooling system features a patented storage core with a series of aluminum micro-channels, which route liquid refrigerant around a graphite honeycomb substrate that is impregnated with water. This substrate is capable of storing cold energy at an extremely high efficiency. The cold energy is transferred to the cab for on demand cooling via a compact air handler, which results in operator comfort and fuel savings. Key product benefits: The all-new Polar Cab TS engine-off cabin cooling system has a cooling capacity of 1.3kW (4,450 BTU/h). The Polar Cab TS does not require any additional batteries and consumes very little power. The system can be fully recharged within 3 hours. Webasto offers Polar Cab TS as an aftermarket kit which includes the thermo storage core, electrical compressor (24V), condenser with fan, air handler, wire harness and miscellaneous hardware needed for installation. The system can be italled at the dealership on new equipment as well as on existing equipment.
