Don-Bur Launch The Teardrop MK2

news/aerodynamics

Originally launched in 2006, the Teardrop™ concept has already become a well-proven product that generates fuel savings anywhere between 3% and 19.82% in operating conditions (11.3% average).

After working with Coventry University, using the latest CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) software, Don-Bur has now developed and launched the Teardrop™ MK2.

Currently under trial, the Teardrop™ MK2 has some radically altered features in order to improve airflow, which include a new skirting system, new tubular under-run and a futuristic rearframe design: all designed to reduce drag.

Running at just 4.325m overall height and a generous 2.138m rear aperture height, the Teardrop™ MK retains the 10% greater cube than a standard 4.2m Box Van Trailer and is hoped to achieve an average of 15% fuel saving (currently under trial).

Richard Owens, Marketing Manager at Don-Bur says "Nothing on the commercial vehicle market is as advanced as the Teardrop™ MK2.  Fortunately, we are using tried and tested motor vehicle technology that has been available for decades and we look forward to seeing the trial results."
