Idle Management System

  • Drastically reduce your operating costs and carbon footprint by using the Therma-Start™ idle management system

WHAT IS THERMA-START™?

Therma-Start™ is a non-invasive retrofit start-stop system that easily installs on diesel-powered vehicles and equipment. The system eliminates unnecessary idling, saves on fuel consumption, extends oil change intervals and saves on maintenance costs. The latest in Start/Stop technology, Therma-Start™ is the definitive way to drastically reduce and manage operating costs while achieving major emissions reductions.

HOW IT WORKS

Therma-Start™ is constantly monitoring the engine block temperature, battery voltage, and for air-start machines the tank air pressure. When the block temperature drops to a pre-set point, the engine automatically starts. Therma-Start™ is programmed to go through a safety signalling delay before initiating each start-up cycle. When the engine block resumes optimal temperature, Therma-Start™ signals the engine to automatically shut down. Therma-Start™ also continuously monitors battery condition so a start-up can be initiated if a battery is losing charge due to cold weather extremes. Operators can confidently walk away from their machines knowing that Therma-Start™ is in charge!

THERMA-START™ FEATURES & BENEFITS

For example a 789C Cat Haul truck consuming 47 litres of fuel per idling hour over a 12 hour
shift yielded the following savings once Therma-Start™ was installed:

  • Reduced idle time by 80% – from 12 hours down to 2.4 hours per shift
  • Reduced fuel consumption by 80% – from 564 litres down to 114 litres per shift
  • Reduced carbon emissions by 80% – from 1,300 kg’s of Co2 down to 260 kg’s of Co2 per shift

PAYBACK PERIOD

In this example, from fuel savings alone payback is accomplished in less than 1 month!
When you also factor in significantly extended maintenance intervals (ie. differential rebuild) along with greatly reduced wear and tear your payback savings escalate dramatically.
