Mining professionals from around the world attending MINExpo International in Las Vegas will get their first look at two new HVAC systems from Bergstrom that are designed for the mining industry.

Bergstrom Inc., a global leader in the design and supply of heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) solutions to OEM and aftermarket off-highway customers across the world, unveiled the two new products at its MINExpo booth 9126.

The new products – the BES2600LH and the DBAC-100, 101 and 200 – are OEM-quality, durable and cost-effective solutions for mine operators who are looking for hydraulically-driven or electrified no-idle solutions for mining vehicles.

“We’re very excited to launch these new product lines here at MINExpo. These are cost- effective HVAC solutions for the harsh environment mining vehicles are used in,” says Tom Fisher, Engineering Manager of Bergstrom Electrified Systems Division. “Whether it’s 110 degrees in the Southwest or -15 degrees up north, operators will be comfortable. Most importantly, with Bergstrom on your side you can count on quality systems that are extremely reliable.”


The BES2600LH system is a brand new hydraulically-driven unit designed to keep operators of a variety of mining vehicles comfortable.

The roof-mounted system contains a heavy-duty hydraulic compressor unit and weighs just over 250 lbs. It boasts an industry leading performance capacity of 25,932 BTU/hr for cooling and 34,120 BTU/hr for heating. The unit has a rugged steel base that offers superior durability and protection to perform in the most punishing environments.

DBAC-100, 101 & 200

Bergstrom’s triple crown DBAC product line is an electrified air conditioning system engineered for the harshest conditions. It was originally launched in Europe by Dirna Bergstrom, a Bergstrom subsidiary, and is now available to US customers.

The DBAC product line offers a choice of three different evaporators to service any vehicle configuration. The three evaporator styles include a thin, vertical wall or floor-mounted system, a universal tower-style system or a horizontal under-the-seat or headliner system. The driving force behind the three versatile evaporators is a heavy-duty steel constructed case that encapsulates the electric compressor, dual fan powered condenser and receiver drier. The DBAC systems are available in 12V or 24V and generate 6,824 BTU/hr and 10,919 BTU/hr respectively.

“The introduction of these new products is part of Bergstrom’s continued innovation efforts,” says Gus Anton, North American Division President of Bergstrom. “We’ve recruited many of the industry’s top engineering professionals and equipped them with state-of-the-art equipment and facilities. This allows us to respond to changing market needs and continuously improve existing solutions.”
