Deltek eliminates most serviceable parts
Jun 1, 2006 12:00 PM
Carrier Transicold has introduced Deltek hybrid diesel electric technology to the North American refrigerated transport industry.
Patented Deltek technology is a radical departure from conventional mechanical technology that has defined transport refrigeration systems for more than 50 years. Through expanded use of electronics and maintenance-free electrical components, it offers a streamlined design that does away with most serviceable mechanical parts, such as belts and clutches, and it reduces the refrigerant charge compared with conventional systems.
Core components of the system are:
An ultra-high-performance aircraft-quality generator to provide all needed electrical power. The generator is driven by a diesel engine, creating the hybrid diesel electric power train.
An electric, sealed compressor to drive the simplified refrigeration system. The compressor assures an extra tight refrigeration system because its electric motor is inside the compressor housing. No shaft seal is required.
A distributed system of maintenance-free electric evaporator and condenser fans to control the flow of air.
Electric-resistance heat for on-demand heating, independent of the cooling system and outdoor temperature.
Carrier estimates Deltek technology can reduce lifecycle costs by as much as 30%. Deltek technology will be gradually introduced in different transport refrigeration product lines, with initial product introductions planned for the first half of 2006.
