Testing Confirms Fuel Savings
Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems LLC has announced results of ongoing tests confirming its air management system reduces fuel consumption by more than 4 percent in medium-duty commercial vehicles. The closed-track vehicle testing included the Bendix PBS Air Injection Booster, Bendix Turbo-Clutch Air Compressor and Bendix Electronic Air Control Dryer.
“By combining these optimized air management products, vehicle and engine manufacturers have proven solutions that can be used in current and future vehicles to provide fleets and owner-operators greater fuel savings,” said Steve Mance, Bendix vice president and general manager for the charging business group. “This will become even more important with future implementation of the EPA and NHTSA proposed rule to further reduce fuel consumption and greenhouse gases beginning in 2014.”
