Prevent Freezing:

  1. Water Recirculation Systems: Keep water in vacuum trucks in constant motion to prevent freezing.
  2. Boilers: Equipped with boilers, trucks can provide hot water for thawing pipelines and hydroexcavating frozen ground.
  3. Heated Ball Valves: Unheated ball valves and knife gate valves can freeze at frigid temperatures.
  4. Water Separator Heaters: These heaters thwart the freezing of water in the fuel system, diminishing the risk of fuel system damage and engine shutdown.

Cold Weather Starting and Reliable Power:

  1. Engine block heaters: Keep the engine warm, making it easier to start in cold temperatures, which is crucial in winter, reducing the risk of engine damage and downtime.
  2. Heavy-duty batteries: Heavy-duty batteries provide reliable power even in extremely cold conditions, ensuring that the truck starts and operates without issues.

Improved Combustion & Fuel Quality:

  1. Grid Heaters: Grid heaters preheat the air entering the engine, improving combustion efficiency and reducing emissions in cold weather.
  2. Fuel Filters: High-quality fuel filters help prevent fuel gelling and filter out impurities, ensuring a consistent and clean fuel supply during winter, which is essential for the truck's performance.
