With over 145 models designed to increase fuel efficiency for truck bodies and trailers of all sizes, air deflectors by Nose Cone are a sure thing when it comes to improving your mileage. Nose Cone Manufacturing Company adopted its name from the research done by aeronautical engineers in designing the forward section of rockets; maximize efficiency by minimizing aerodynamic resistance through shaping. The NoseCone allows the air to flow smoothly along the sides of the trailer thus eliminating the vacuum on the leeward side of the trailer. Allowing for smooth uninterrupted airflow regardless of the wind's angle of approach, aerodynamic shaping provides the greatest possible improvement in fuel economy.
Nose Cone systems effectively bridge the gap between tractor system and the trailer front wall, making up as much as ½ mile per gallon over the tractor system alone. Wind tunnel studies show, when used alone with flat top tractor, the Nose Cone trailer system increases mileage 10% in a zero degree wind and 12% in a ten-degree crosswind.
Maximum, more consistent vehicle efficiency is achieved when the vehicle shape responds to all wind speeds and directions with relative consistency. Nose Cone equipped trucks are noticeably better road performers, especially in crosswinds. The unsafe effects of vehicle instability felt under windy conditions are greatly reduced with Nose Cone aerodynamic shaping. Smoother airflow helps drivers stay on track.
The Nose Cone is a readily available solution that is effective, economical and practical for the tractor/trailer interface.
