EcoDual, Inc., a provider of dual-fuel systems for heavy-duty, Class 8 trucks in the United States, has launched version 2.0 of its flagship platform, the MAX/SRTM Dual Fuel System and a new two-year unlimited mileage warranty.
MAX/SRTM 2.0 features a breakthrough in natural gas substitution rates with industry-specific enhancements to EcoDual’s proprietary technology. It will save operators 25% on their overall fuel costs and increases natural gas substitution rates to achieve a 16% improvement across the broadest range of driving conditions.
Other key upgrades of MAX/SRTM 2.0, which includes a new tank mounting system, make the system more reliable, durable and lighter, while also decreasing installation time, emissions and maintenance expenses.
EcoDual’s new two-year unlimited mileage warranty is claimed as an industry first.
The MAX/SRTM 2.0 further enables Class 8 fleets to significantly reduce fuel costs by utilizing cleaner, domestically produced compressed natural gas (CNG) or liquefied natural gas (LNG). With the ability to utilize natural gas with existing diesel engines, fleets are able to realize cost savings and reduced maintenance cycles while maintaining the same power and torque required for efficient performance. As natural gas fueling stations continue to come on-line, dual-fuel overcomes any range anxiety given its ability to run on diesel fuel if on-board CNG or LNG is depleted.
