KIRKLAND, Wash. — A new four-minute video on the Kenworth Clean Power no-idle system is available for viewing at www.kenworth.com.
The addition of the Kenworth Clean Power video to the Kenworth Web site makes it very easy for customers to learn more about the features and benefits of this revolutionary system, said Jeff Sass, Kenworth marketing planning director.
Kenworth Clean Power is designed to enhance fuel economy, driver comfort and reduce emissions. The system uses dedicated, advanced deep-cycle batteries that power a thermal storage cooler with 21,000 BTUs of cooling capacity.
Once the truck is shut off, a thermostat is designed to regulate the desired temperature and a variable speed fan circulates chilled air through a duct located near the bunk. For dual bunk set-ups, a second duct keeps the upper bunk area cool.
Kenworth officials say that extensive testing has shown that when the outside temperature is as high as 95 degrees, the Clean Power system is able to keep the sleeper cool and provide accessory power for up to 10 hours. To provide heat when temperatures dip, a small diesel-fired heater mounted under the bunk is also controlled with a thermostat.
The new Kenworth Clean Power system can be ordered as an option on the Kenworth T660 with 72-inch AeroCab sleeper.
