While one bus makes a nice story,
you should know that as of
April 26, 2000,
more than 824 buses
have had filter kits installed on them!
Installations have been done on units from the
New Flyer, MCI, Nova & Orion
Installation allows removal of oil from system before
contamination of air dryer can occur.
Filter reduces the temperature of the incoming air to the
air dryer to further enhance water removal.
Action of unit contains and limits carbonization of the main
air line (prevents clogging!).
Replacement of air line reduced to one single line between
compressor and filter unit.
Completely accessible in engine compartment, without the
need to place the bus on a lift!
Filter prolongs the air dryer operating life and all related
air brake and pneumatic components in the system.
Installation leads to reduced maintenance costs and limits
Eliminates driver sickness due to oil vapor contamination!*
*DRIVERS SOMETIMES GET SICK FROM OIL VAPOR
FUMES COMING FROM AIR OPERATED WINDSHIELD WIPER MOTORS. THE OIL VAPORS
ARE EXHAUSTED WITH THE COMPRESSED AIR INTO THE DRIVERS COMPARTMENT,
SICKENING MANY DRIVERS.
Enhanced operation of the air dryer virtually eliminates air
line water freeze up in winter operating conditions!
Increased service life of air suspension. Oil removal
protects the rubber bellows from the detergent enriched oil!
Enhanced service life of air equipment allows better
performance and lessens the occurrence of air leaks. These air leaks
increase compressor cycle time and increase oil migration throughout the
compressed air system.
Installation in engine compartment is best place for
protection of filter from elements. Other units mount near the air
dryer and become susceptible to damage.
In addition, some of these "other units" drain the trapped contaminates on to road surfaces!! This is simply not a very good idea taking the environment into account.
