WHAT IS A WEBASLE IN A MACHINE AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
Early morning, winter, snow and cold outside. But you have to get up and sit in a car that is completely frozen during the night, the engine of which absolutely does not want to start. Inevitably, you begin to think, in order to come up with some device that alleviates this constant winter suffering. It turns out that everything has already been invented before us and such a device not only exists, but is actively exploited. It is called Webasto. WHAT IS IT AND WHAT A BENEFIT? Webasto is a preheater of the passenger compartment, engine and car body. The device is very popular, so much so that its name has become a household name for a whole group of similar devices. It is placed in the engine compartment, where it takes up very little space. Among its advantages is the minimum fuel consumption, which means you should not worry that the car will start to “eat” too much fuel. Experienced motorists know that regular long-term cold start of the engine leads not only to excessive fuel consumption, but also to accelerated wear and failure of the engine. Buying a device such as Webasto will simultaneously provide a comfortable temperature in the cabin and reduce the load on the engine. This will reduce wear and extend the life of the engine. For the driver and passengers, a warm cabin means a quiet and comfortable ride without waiting for the engine to warm up and the discomfort in the frozen car. This is especially important if in the morning you have to carry small children. TYPES OF HEATERS A wide range of heaters of this brand is produced, which are designed for use in cars of various brands. Models differ in power and engine size, but the main division is in the device for a gasoline engine and a diesel engine. Some motorists prefer diesel cars, and for trucks and special equipment is the norm. However, diesel fuel has a feature – it is more thick and viscous than gasoline. In the cold it thickens and thaws much longer than gasoline, so Webasto for diesel cars is a real find and a complete solution to the problem of winter fuel hardening. Installation solves the problems of cold start and comfort in the car. In the product line of this brand there are many options designed to work with cars of different brands and engine sizes – from small small cars to powerful off-road vehicles, special equipment and commercial vehicles. HOW DOES IT WORK AND HOW TO USE? The design of the device is simple, so it is very reliable and durable. These products are able to serve from 10 years and longer (with proper installation and operation). The unit consists of the following elements: The combustion chamber. Heat exchanger It is connected to the engine cooling system. Device for automatic control and operation control. The creators of the device provided the possibility of setting the time of automatic switching on the timer. This makes it easier for people who drive to work at the same time every day to use the car. Now to their services fully heated and ready for the trip transport. You can control Webasto with the help of a remote control with a distance of reliable signal reception up to 1 km. The latest models are equipped with the ability to work with a smartphone that has a GPS function. In addition to warming up the engine and heating the cabin, the device helps to remove a layer of ice and snow from the windows of the car. The operation of the system consists of the following steps: Reception of a signal from a timer, remote control or user’s smartphone. Fuel supply to the combustion chamber of the motor. Antifreeze heating. Promotion of antifreeze through the device’s heat exchanger, radiator and engine. Promotion of coolant in the interior heating system. At the same time, the fans are activated, forcing warm air to the glass of the car, which contributes to the melting of ice and snow on them. The machine is fully heated and ready for further use. The engine starts “with a half turn.” When living in harsh climatic conditions, the presence of Webasto is vital and helps to significantly simplify the daily procedures for starting the engine and warming up the cabin. VIDEO COST AND COMPARISON WITH “SIGNALING + AUTO-START” The price of the device with installation varies from 40 to 90 thousand rubles depending on the model. An hour of work requires 0.5 liters of fuel, the car warms up from a quarter of an hour to 30 minutes. Savings are to reduce fuel consumption for heating the car and to reduce engine wear, which leads to the extension of its service. Alarm with auto start is much cheaper, but it is more complex electronic system, which, if it fails, will require significant repair costs. In comparison, Webasto is simpler, more durable and more practical. It is not entirely correct to compare these two categories of devices, since the signaling function of the machine warming up is still secondary, and Webasto was not initially designed as a complex combined system with the signaling function. The purchase of Webasto is justified when the car is operated daily.
