The technology processes of Caterpillar Inc. require special attention. If you are looking for a superior performance, look - it is here, in CAT. This famous logo and brand have become the best only due to its building reliable engines, forestry, construction and mining equipment. Testing and quality processes in Caterpillar will meet any of your demands. The CAT engineers work closely with OEM, providing them with the information on all factory-applied coatings of all types of the construction equipment. This reduces the development time, tooling and production costs, increasing the performance of your products.
The problem of ecology and its solution is quite crucial today due to the noise and emission effects of idling vehicles that continues to grow in many states and communities. The average U.S. long haul truck engine idles for over 1,800 hours annually. Hazardous effects of the construction and other machines, produced by most of the world leaders, harden the ecological situation.
Economic and environmental issues are the most important for every country now, and the ways to reduce the noise and emissions effects are partially found. The most recent new MorElectric technology of the year 2005 is to reduce truck fuel consumption to 1,260 gallons per year. This is a new Caterpillar technology. What is the way that enables this new machine producing brand to reduce the emissions reasonably? Using the technology of hybrid automobiles, the MorElectric System combines electric power of generator and electrically powered heating, ventilating and air-conditioning (HVAC) system. The electric power for the HVAC system comes from a 7,300-watt, high-efficiency generator, that replaces the alternator. This base system is really reliable, durable and providing up to a two percent improvement in on-road fuel economy. With an electric HVAC unit on-board there can be offered two more solutions saving your money and ecology. These are the APU option and plug-in Shore Power. The APU option is the CAT designed option sharing the coolant with the main engine cooling system, where the usual concerns about starting a diesel engine in cold weather are eliminated. It provides up to an additional six percent fuel and emissions savings. Plug-in Shore Power in its turn provides an additional eight percent of savings. It allows a truck to be plugged into a pedestal, which is similar to a travel trailer plugging in at a campground. The Caterpillar Inc. dealers of all over the world will provide you with all the needed service and parts at the time you need and at terms you have discussed.
A wonderful combination of iron and electronics in CAT produced machines makes its product powerful and productive. The systems, proven to work harder and longer, will save your money because of buying its techniques. The electronic control technology, capability, software design, and application consulting will not just pass by your attention. The higher productivity, operators' and service help, lower fuel emissions and time savings will finally earn your trust, if it has not yet.
