HeatBlocker on Refuse Collection Trucks for the Waste Industry
The refuse collection industry—both public and private—has made a concerted effort to develop truck fleets that are not solely powered by diesel. One such alternative fuel that is gaining rapid acceptance is compressed refuse collection truck. And although CNG-powered engines are quieter, cleaner, and less expensive to operate, their exhaust temperatures are just as hot, and they can be dangerous unless they are properly managed. Kalb Corporation manufactures HeatBlocker Exhaust Insulation systems, which are designed to reduce the likelihood of debris catching fire on CNG refuse collection trucks. In addition, containing the heat on these exhaust systems reduces the amount of heat stress on sensitive engine components that have been installed near the exhaust.
Crews involved in the collection of solid waste already work in one of the most dangerous industries in this country. Their safety can be dramatically improved, however, with the use of HeatBlocker Exhaust Insulation systems. To learn more, contact Kalb Corporation directly.
