    New Cerakote ceramic-coating lowers the heat radiation on all exhaust components by more than 30% to reduce component fatigue and extend your truckmount life—plus keep the van interior cooler! Powered by a liquid-cooled 31 HP Kubota gasoline engine, the Apex 570 uses the patented Sapphire Scientific triple-source thermal well system to deliver maximum consistent heat. Features a sleek new design and the superior performance you expect from Prochem and Sapphire!

    as they pack components tighter in an effort to reduce footprint size, I s'pose every little bit helps .
    Don't they put auxiliary fans in some now to help keep from cooking belts prematurely?

    Seems like the technology is similar to the automobile industry. New cars are great when they work. If you are ok with trading in ever 100k miles or paying to have it dealer serviced they are really neat. At least the tech trickles down over time and becomes mainstream if it's really effective.

    Over complication when all we want is to squirt and suck with a SIMPLE machine . Something that doesn't require proprietary parts.

    It’s real simple that’s why I don’t get the 25 k compared to 10 years ago a more complicated 405 was 17 k

    These machines aren’t cheap heck Mikes entry level 370 is 18k

    I got over 3300 hours on the 370 belts before they started loosing teeth. Changing the belts were a bit of a pain having never done it. Next time it should be much easier, most normal somewhat mechanical people should be able to do it.

    You're just jealous that you don't have Cerakote

    I did this 5 or 6 years ago when I replaced the oem manifold with a new SS one. I took it to a coating specialist who called it "Race Coating". It was done on both inside and out with an additional ceramic on the outside. Guess it may have helped some but it would still glow red when hot.
    Eventually the inside coating started to come off.

    What I’am reading is its 30% cooler on the components and interior of the van!

    Not actually generating more heat, but since it’s already so hot no need!

    If it keeps the heat where it belongs instead of radiating it off, it will give you more heat where you need it.

    Well like Larry said, SS condenses they’re machine size and it’s more compact!

    Less room to breathe so any type of heat sink would benefit the system.
