PITTSBURGH, April 18, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- An issue that many trucking companies run into is accidental damage to the Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) condenser fan. This damage can be caused by contact with air lines, rocks or the pigtail. Replacement of the fan can be costly and puts the truck out of commission while the repairs are being done, which can result in a loss of money for the company.
An inventor from Eustace, Texas, has invented A/C CONDENSER FAN GUARD, a protective, cage-like shield for the vulnerable Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) condenser fan on the back of a semi-truck. "I work on diesel trucks every day and have been troubleshooting them for over 40 years," said the inventor. "Replacement condenser fans can cost more than $270.00 and I am all about saving money, and my invention would help prevent the need for such a replacement." A/C CONDENSER FAN GUARD protects the Auxiliary Power Unit condenser fan against costly damage from the pigtail, rocks, or air lines as it intercepts potential sources of harm to keep the fan safe and intact.
This invention would spare the trucking firm costly replacement of the APU fan, which is typically not under warranty for this type of damage. Additionally, this invention does not hinder the fan in any way as it allows for maximum airflow. It is secure and reliable in design and would provide trucking companies with peace of mind.
The original design was submitted to the Dallas office of InventHelp. It is currently patent pending and available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
