Shore Power Heating Systems
HOTSTART's electric-powered locomotive idle reduction systems can be mounted in different locations to meet your requirements. Heating systems can be installed inside the car body of the locomotive, on the walkway and even trackside. The heaters are also available in component form without the standard mounting plate, allowing for more flexible installations where space is limited.
CLV Electric Heating System
The CLV is an electric idle reduction system that maintains the temperature of the prime mover above 100°F (38°C), keeping the locomotive warm and ready to restart. The CLV is a complete, packaged water heating system with PT-100 temperature sensors, pump and all required controls.
DLV Electric Heating System
The DLV is a complete, packaged dual heating system with PT-100 temperature sensors, pump and all required controls. It heats and circulates coolant and lube oil throughout the entire engine and cooling system. The DLV heats engines up to 300L displacement at 120°F over ambient temperature.
