The principal of operation is identical to the smaller units for cars and vans, but the water tank is specially adapted for mounting on chassis cab and tractor units. The low temperature evaporator is also of a larger size to accommodate the increased exhaust pipe diameters. the catalyser is likewise increased in size for the greater air flow.
The current 5th generation kit requires no physical intervention on the vehicle excepting the point of entry for the air flow. It is often practical to drill a small opening in the air inlet manifold before the filter.
The kit can be fitted by any competent mechanic in 1:5 to 2 hrs and can be easily transferred to another vehicle in the event of fleet changes ( fixings may need to be replaced ).
There are no moving parts. The lifetime of the evaporator, unless physically abused, is virtually unlimited. The catalyser may be replaced at an interval of 65,000 to 85,000 km, or when a decrease in performance is observed. The catalyser is a low cost item which does need periodic renewal (it is currently priced at £50).
