New compact pumped heater
JUNE 2015 : Carlor is about to launch the most compact aluminium heater with integrated circulation pump: the FlowStart.
This heater gathers all the different characteristics of the Thermocar (aluminium body, automatic regulation thermostat 25A, low wattage density, etc.) but is equipped with a powerful circulation pump making it very suitable for small gensets or for the automotive industry (ambulances, fire trucks, trucks, etc.). The FlowStart will fit perfectly in our product range and is the ‘’in thing’’ said commercial director Sébastien Peutat. The engines are getting more and more complex to meet the new emissions standards. The use of thermosiphon heaters to heat the engine is sometimes inadequate because of the complexity of the coolant circuit. Some customers who cannot afford a high-quality heater like the Topstart buy a thermosiphon heater and add a pump next to it to force the circulation. The new FlowStart brings a very affordable answer to those issues by reducing the installation costs and by reducing the leakage risks that you would encounter with a thermosiphon system and a separate pump. Furthermore, the use of a pumped heater instead of a thermosiphon heater reduces the consumption by 25-30% making it a very profitable investment. The first production of the FlowStart will start at the beginning of August.
