Construction & Mining
Industrial equipment, especially when operated in severe climates, suffers from a multitude of cold climate issues ranging from poor cabin comfort, engine wet stacking, excessive idling and fuel consumption, equipment depreciation from idling, and non-performing aftertreatment systems. The LHG provides a highly effective remedy to all these issues in the construction and mining industries. In addition, the LHG can be configured to provide fluid heating for hydraulics, oil systems, and the transportation of fluids. an effective source of heated coolant for tank and equipment heating, ground thawing, and space heating.
Ventech offers the LHG technology in conjunction with an Arctic APU (Auxiliary Power Unit) for engine-off applications in construction and mining. The Ventech Arctic Heat Generator (AHG) can provide over 100,000 Btu / hr to maintain operational temperature of vehicles and equipment. Ventech also offers the HCH4500; an intrinsically-safe coolant heater that is driven by a hydraulic motor and is therefore safe to use in explosive and dangerous mining conditions. The heated fluid can also be used for cabin, engine, and fluid heating.
