AKG and Horton introduce a combined-technology, advanced cooling system incorporating Horton’s WindMaster Revolution hybrid-flow fan and AKG’s aluminum bar-plate deep-core heat exchanger technology. The AKG/WindMaster Revolution System eliminates remote-mounted coolers, draws less power for added efficiency, reduces fan/operating noise, increases heat transfer capabilities, and improves maintenance. The single-plane cooling solution fits in small spaces; a standard package design with bar-plate construction customizes systems for various applications. Available in a 550-mm (22-in) nylon 6 version and a 750-mm (30-in) welded-aluminum version, the WindMaster Revolution fan is optimized to move air efficiently around the engine and underhood compartment. Together the flexible airflow solution meets the demands of EPA 10, Euro VI, and Tier 4 engines.
