Civil works machinery
Carlor has long been aware of the requirements of manufacturers of works machinery. Increasing the life-cycles and reliability of these machines while reducing fuel consumption is one priority for which Carlor has be able to answer. Our engine block heater solutions can meet these expectations in a very simple manner, whether fitted as OEM or on the aftermarket.
Heavy engineering equipment must be designed to last and to resist extreme weather conditions. The use of an engine preheater is one of the vital elements that ensure a long engine life. Low temperatures represent an additional challenge when starting a large number of machines (including heavy trucks, cranes, compressors and generators). Accordingly there is not only a risk of increased engine wear but also the risk that the engine simply won’t start at all.
Just an hour of downtime for one engine in the mining sector could cost more than the purchase and installation of a complete engine preheater system.
Installing a preheater in civil engineering equipment preserves the engine and extends its lifespan. The cost of a preheater therefore generates a return on investment over a very short period of time.
