"During idle, a modern diesel doesn’t combust fuel as efficiently, which over time can be detrimental to component life."
"I really liked having a quiet lunch! It was 25 ºF and the Primo IAS kept me warm."
"Inefficiencies due to truck idling are a significant source of inefficiency that has plagued the industry for years…Many case studies in industry have demonstrated that it is possible to significantly save on energy consumption with proven policies to turn off engines during such periods…And these initiatives recognize the impact of operators on a mine's energy efficiency."
  • Extend engine life hour for hour with idle avoided
  • Reduce unnecessary fuel consumption
  • Reduce powertrain maintenance cost by cutting engine run time
  • Simple, safe, and efficient. Easy to maintain
  • Little to no operator interaction required
  • Heats and cools as efficiently as (or better than!) OEM systems
  • Self-contained with quick connects designed for easy maintenance
  • 5 minute cool down mode allows for orderly equipment shutdown
  • Auxiliary A/C system can be operated as primary in place of OEM A/C
  • Addresses compressed air loss which can often cause of equipment restart failure
  • Aux Power: 13 hp Tier 4 super mini diesel engine and 24v alternator maintain truck’s battery charge
  • Reduce Fuel: ½ gallon per hour vs truck engine at 5 to 17 gallons per hour at idle
  • Aux A/C: Aux compressor matches OEM A/C systems ensuring performance & comfort
  • Heat: Circulates hot coolant to heat the cab keep both OEM engine and auxiliary engine warm
  • Automatic Operation: provides power to needed systems such as radios, lights, windows, etc., while turning off power to unnecessary components
  • Timed Auto Shutdown with Operator Override: Safe and practical shutdown ensures system usage
  • Master Switch: Completely disable system for maintenance and safety
