A new accessory is available from AeroHance. AeroHance Pods are aerodynamic fuel savers that respond to operator demands.
Patently distinct from vortex generators, AeroHance Pods enhance and accelerate air flow increasing the volume forced into the wake region. This raises its pressure and moves the longitudinal vortices associated with it further back away from the vehicle. The result is a lessening in turbulence or drag.
AeroHance performance is measured by these changes in airflow and a resulting reduction in vehicles' drag coefficient. Computational Fluid Dynamic Analysis showed a 5.2% reduction in the drag coefficient of a blunt back passenger vehicle.
Some of AeroHance’s clients keep an ongoing tally of savings from drivers’ logs. Some of these include:
- The Berryman’s 53’ tractor trailers — 2.6% savings.
- Box delivery trucks — 6% average savings.
- Kia’s sales team fleet — 8% average savings.
- A mobility transit service —10% increase in mileage.
According to The Berryman President, Les Clark, “We looked at the numbers we did the math. It was there in black and white. And we were really surprised that we did save money. Two miles per gallon, that is almost a free gallon of gas every time you fill-up the tank. People see our trucks all over town so anytime that we can promote something like that and save money doing it. Absolutely, that’s a win, win for everybody.”
On top of fuel savings, AeroHance Pods require no driver interaction, with no modification or operational interference. And they have a low profile to comply with Federal and Multi-State dimension regulations.
Specialty Pods are also available including “Celebrate Sustainable” made using scrap material vented during shoe sole production. This prevents production waste from accumulating in landfills to make its way to the Ocean — a potential value-added benefit for your company’s ESG report.
AeroHance Pods are sold at AeroHance and coming soon to your favorite truck wash station. Use coupon code "Bobit" for a discount at checkout when ordering from AeroHance.
