AUBURN HILLS, Mich., June 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- BorgWarner's (NYSE: BWA) improved Cool Logic® variable speed fan drives are now standard equipment on MACK® Granite®, Titan® and Pinnacle™ model series heavy-duty commercial diesel trucks, used in dump truck, mixer and snow plow applications, as well as highway hauling. Based on four million miles of fleet testing, Cool Logic fan drives improve fuel economy up to 3% (depending on route terrain, truck load and duty cycle) compared with traditional fan drives, delivering substantial savings to truck fleet owners.
"Proven fuel economy, low noise and reduced maintenance make BorgWarner's Cool Logic fan drives a smart solution for truck fleet owners," said Dan CasaSanta, President and General Manager, BorgWarner Thermal Systems. "Cool Logic fan drives have been offered as an option since their introduction in 2007. We are pleased that Mack is now selecting our premium cooling technology as standard equipment on all Granite, Titan, and Pinnacle model trucks."
Responding to signals from the engine control module thousands of times per minute, Cool Logic fan drives electronically vary fan speed to provide consistent, precise temperature control that automatically adjusts to load and road grades. The highly reliable and responsive wet-friction clutch design reduces engine drag, delivering more horsepower and greater fuel economy compared with traditional on/off or two-speed clutch systems. Its actuation logic system delivers quiet operation to increase cabin comfort and reduce driver fatigue. In addition to fuel savings, Cool Logic fan drives extend the life of the entire cooling system, including the radiator and charge air cooler, and decrease wear on serpentine belt components.
