In an effort to improve airflow and engine cooling in the wake of changing emissions standards, diesel engine manufacturer Horton offers Stratis Viscous Fan Drives, DM Advantage On/Off and Two-Speed Fan Drives, and Arctis On/Off Fan Drives. Stratis Viscous Fan Drives are managed by the engine’s electronic control unit for fan speed control and feature a reservoir, actuator, and valve system. DM Advantage On/Off and Two-Speed Fan Drives offer improved components and torque, while Arctis On/Off Fan Drives are lighter with the greatest torque. All offer decreased fuel consumption and generate better airflow, according to the company.
