Carrier Transicold X-pands reefer unit line
Aug 1, 2005 12:00 PM
Carrier Transicold has introduced the X series, a new family of performance-boosting direct-drive truck refrigeration units designed for small trucks.
Variable-speed models 50X and 40X are successors to the Integra 50S and 40S. They have larger condenser and evaporator coils, resulting in much greater cooling capacity, better pulldown, and superior temperature recovery from door openings and deliveries.
The 50X unit delivers 1,250 cfm airflow and provides 17,000 Btu of cooling with a set point of 35° F at 100° F ambient. The 40X unit delivers airflow of 860 cfm and 15,000 Btu of cooling at a 35° F set point.
The smallest direct-drive unit offered by Carrier, the model 20X offers better value and lower operating cost for small delivery vehicles that may not need the capacity of a larger unit. The 20X is equipped with a condenser-valve-enhanced heat system, a rooftop-mount kit, and a refrigerant discharge muffler to reduce noise in the driver's compartment. It generates airflow of 500 cfm and has a cooling capacity of 7,200 Btu at 35° F at 100° F ambient.
The model 20X incorporates the Cab Command microprocessor and dash-mounted control panel. The larger 50X and 40X units use the more powerful Cab Command 2 controller, which offers hourmeters and enhanced diagnostics. The 50X and 40X units are also available with several electric standby-operation voltage options.
All use environmentally sound R-404A refrigerant, and also provide enhanced hot gas heating. DuraShell composite skins won't scratch, dent or rust. With a narrow profile for maximum cargo space, the SlimLine evaporator is used with the X series.
