Doosan, Webasto Partner on Generator Preheat System

November 13, 2013

Doosan Portable Power and Webasto Thermo & Comfort North America will partner to offer Webasto’s engine preheat system as a factory fit option available on the full line of Doosan generators.

The system design includes a Webasto Thermo 90 ST fuel operated coolant heater, seven-day programmable timer and Arctic Fox fuel warmer, which prevents diesel fuel from gelling in cold temperatures. The timer controls the engine preheat system, allowing users to schedule remote start-up of the machine up to seven days out.

The programmable system preheats the engine so the generator can provide power at the moment it is needed, providing fuel savings and reduced engine wear. The technology also helps lower emissions during machine start up, helping construction sites comply with anti-idling regulations.
