Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems announced its new Bendix AD-HFi air dryer is available for order through several major North American commercial vehicle manufacturers.
It offers more dry air for the systems trucks depend on, improved energy efficiency and air system diagnostics, according to the Elyria, Ohio-based company, a unit of Knorr-Bremse AG.
The AD-HFi model features the same design as the Bendix AD-HF dryer — which Bendix launched in 2019 — but incorporates a solenoid-operated valve that replaces the traditional mechanical governor.
“An electronically controlled governor means we precisely regulate the dryer’s charge and regeneration cycles using Bendix’s electronic air control software,” Rich Nagel, director of marketing for air supply and drivetrain, said in a release. “This function enables the dryer to operate under different parameters in different conditions, increasing its dry-air processing capability and saving energy. That same software also provides diagnostics that help fleets and owner-operators get the most out of their dryers and cartridges.” — Transport Topics
