Cool approach to overheating issue

Have your say

A Chesterfield foam company is expecting £370,000 sales of a new system that aims to prevent heavy machinery from overheating.

TMAT has developed a polyurethane ‘cushion’ capable of withstanding temperatures of up to 120 degrees Celsius for use in keeping tractors and excavators cool, saving money on fuel.

Jason Lippitt, managing director of TMAT, said: “Predicted sales of this product have gone through the roof since we’ve developed it.

“It’s little wonder, really, considering the foam’s cooling and insulation properties and flexibility in combination with its ability to withstand such high temperatures.

“Heavy machinery overheating too soon and reducing efficiency is a problem and we have created an excellent solution to it – the orders clearly reflect that.”

TMAT Ltd is a multi-national manufacturer of acoustic components for tractors and excavators whose customers include JCB and Volvo.
