Solus Solutions and Technologies showcased 10 EPA- and CARB-certified products at the recent 2011 American Trucking Assns. Maintenance Conference & Exhibition in Grapevine, TX.
Among the products displayed were seven versions of its split skirt configuration. The split skirt offers fuel savings exceeding 5%, Solus said, and the unique design allows easy access to the undercarriage of the trailer.
The split skirts include 8 in. of static ground clearance, rugged flex skirt panels that offer 20 in. of total ground clearance, and weigh less than 200 lbs.
Solus has also created a wheel cavity cover using NASA’s deep cavity flow control technology. The cover allows unlimited access to the lug nut and axle oil lube level without removing the device while providing 1.3% in fuel savings, the company said.
