The HP2000 APU is one of the most rugged APU’s to date. The Hp2000 APU is built in the heart of the U.S.A at the Parks’ Industries headquarters located at 15460 Crabtree School Road in Marion, IL. Quality, value, and exceptional service and support are foundation from which the HP2000 APU is built.
It comes with a weather-sealed lid, reinforced frame, and it is built to handle rough conditions and extreme temperatures that drivers battle every day.
By eliminating the need for the vehicle’s engine to idle, it reduces fuel consumption and eliminates engine wear and tear. In fact, HP2000 APU is known to reduce fuel consumption by up to 90 percent. Also, the patented components used in the APU reduce noise and weight of the machine.
Here are a few benefits of the HP2000 APU:
The APU can be fixed in your vehicle is less than 4 hours. The APU comes with a plug-n-play cabling system which reduces installation time. In a few trucks, the ducting system of the APU can be easily integrated with the vehicle’s existing ducting system.
The control systems of the HP2000 APU are state of the art yet easy to operate. Some of the features included in this system are coolant temperature indicator, calendar start, and low battery indicator. A few other useful features you can find in this high tech system are cool climate control and auto heat.
Reduce Fuel Consumption and Maintenance
If you turn off the engine when the vehicle is parked, it not only reduces fuel consumption but also reduces engine wear and tear. The HP2000 allows you to switch off your vehicle when parked, which reduces fuel and maintenance expenses. Reduced emission is an added bonus of use this APU.
Quiet and Efficient Heat Pump System
What differentiates HP2000 from other APU’s is the quiet and efficient heat pump system. The system uses limited components to heat and cool, which translates to a lower cost for you. Also, it also reduces component wear and tear which reduces the failure rate. The APU uses a larger than necessary cooling system to keeps your vehicle cool during summers. During winter, it uses the heat generated by the engine to maintain temperature.
Unlike other APU’s available in the marketplace, the HP2000 comes with an inverter/alternator combination to provide high quality uninterrupted AC power. Also, if you exclude the generator head, the HP2000 is about 200 lbs lighter that most other APU’s.
High BTU Rating
Since the HP2000 is capable of producing over 20,000 BTU of both heat and A/C, it keeps you warm or cool during extreme temperatures.
Quite and Smooth
The heat-pump system of the run is driven by the two-cylinder Kohler engine which is smooth, quite, and requires little maintenance. The machine is also powder coated to prevent corrosion. The HP2000 also had large lid which makes it easy to service the machine.
The HP2000 APU comes with a 5 year/6,000 hour warranty, which is one of the best in the industry. This is a clear indication of the confidence the company has on its product.
Benefits of Using HP2000 on a Semi-truck
If you are looking for an APU for your semi-truck, you should check out the HP2000. It is one of the most popular systems on semi-trucks in the United States and parts of Europe. Some of the reasons for its extreme popularity are:
The total weight of the unit is just 345 lbs, which makes it one of the lightest APU in the market. Even though the weight may not effect fuel consumption, it will definitely reduce the load of the semi-truck. Also, a lightweight APU is easier to mount and dismount.
High BTU rating
Most semi-trucks operate throughout the year, which means that a lot of truck’s resources are used during extreme temperatures. To work in these extreme temperatures, truck drivers will need an APU that provides cool or hot air for prolonged period. The HP2000 is capable of producing over 20,000 BTU of both heat and A/C. This is sufficient enough to cover the needs of the truck driver.
Reduced Fuel Consumption
The popular anti-idling law is adopted by most states in America. Most ordinary APU’s have a consumption rating ranging from 0.75 to 1.2 gallons per hour, which higher that what the rules recommend. The HP2000 used just 0.11 gallons per hour, which is lower than the limit recommended in anti-idling law.
When you compare HP2000 with other APU’s, you will find that it is the quietest APU in the market. No other APU is able to equal the performance of the HP2000.
One of the biggest challenges faced by truck owners is installing an APU. The problem becomes even more acute if the chassis has not been designed keeping APU in mind. If you buy a large APU, you may have to relocate the air dryer and fuel tanks to fix the APU. The HP2000 is compact and can easily fit most chassis.
The HP2000 APU is an excellent product that is cost effective, fuel efficient, and compact. If you are considering buying an APU, you must check out the feature-rich and durable HP2000 before placing an order.
