SUTRAK began in Germany in the 1970’s with the innovation and worldwide patent award for roof mounted HVAC systems. This technology became so popular that it is still the dominant global design for transit buses today. Since 1981, SUTRAK has manufactured bus and rail HVAC systems for North American customers from its U.S. headquarters in Colorado. In 1996, the company sold international divisions, but retained the North American market in private ownership. Work began on the next generation technology and today the company’s legacy of innovation continues with “ACE” (Air Conditioning Electric) for transit bus and rail applications.
Expanding beyond traditional HVAC systems, ACE systems are the most modern technology available featuring scroll compressors; the most efficient compression technology available for transit use. The systems have 3-phase motors standard, and offer optional electric heat, capable of eliminating external fluid connections and dependence on coolant temperature of the bus. The electric, self-contained packages offer transit authorities fuel savings from reduced parasitic load, while improving cooling performance at an idle. Electric, hybrid-electric, diesel and CNG buses, all can benefit from “ACE” systems with more cooling, less fuel and reduced lifecycle costs. A complete line of traditional and electric “ACE” systems has been engineered and are available for 30-60 foot bus, APM and LRV installations.
