Chinese Coach Builder Partners With Aqua-Hot
Chinese coach manufacturer King Long Coaches will be equipping units with heating systems produced by Fort Lupton, Colo.-based Aqua-Hot.
According to a press release, the Aqua-Hot 450-DE will be standard equipment on the company’s 39- and 45-foot luxury coaches, as well as optional on its 32- and 35-foot business VIP coaches.
“We decided to offer Aqua-Hot Systems because we’d like to introduce world-class comfort to our customers in China,” said Tony Shum, vice president of King Long Coach. “The customers like the Aqua-Hot systems very much. They provide warm, but not dry, air flow, hot water and make it easier for an engine to start in cold winter weather, which is ideal for northern China.”
He adde, “The Aqua-Hot 450-DE will be installed in our new show coach this November for the Guangzhou Car Show. It’s the second biggest car show in China.”
The self-contained Aqua-Hot 450 is able to use power from three different sources: recycled heat from the engine while driving, shore power when available and diesel fuel anytime. Providing an unlimited supply of on-demand hot water, quiet and cozy interior heat, and fast diesel preheating, Aqua-Hot improves the comfort of people on the move.
Environmentally-friendly, the Aqua-Hot 450 employs advanced technology that virtually eliminates emissions and exhaust odor.
