In a recent bus maintenance survey, some interesting findings were revealed. The survey was conducted to see what are the current trends and issues in bus maintenance shops. It was revealed that electric vehicle usage increased by 6% and electrical (issues/training) continued to be the top issue in the shop. Most importantly, the survey showed a large increase in the transition from hydraulic to electrical cooling systems.
Why have electrical cooling systems become so popular among bus agencies? A better question is how they could not? Composed of the radiator, e-fans and charge air cooler, they provide many advantages to the diesel bus market over their hydraulic predecessors.
The benefits many agencies are seeing include:
Improve Fuel Economy
Reduce Dependence on Engine
Easier to Control
In addition, electric cooling systems eliminate hydraulic hoses & valves that can leak. This drastically reduces the risk of engine compartment fires.
