Spectrum brings cooling efficiency to trucks
Oct 1, 2002 12:00 PM
Thermo King's new Spectrum TS multi-temperature refrigeration system for trucks uses new Spectrum remote evaporators, a scroll compressor, and the Spectrum controller. These help provide tighter temperature control, faster temperature pull-down and recovery, higher capacities, fuel efficiency, and less maintenance and costs.
Spectrum remote evaporators offer up to 35% more capacity than existing units. The result is up to 20% faster pull-down and up to 25% more airflow.
Featuring Thermo King's Smart Set technology, the Spectrum TS allows temperatures to be maintained within a tight band, helping minimize dehydration and allowing produce to be delivered fresh.
This system provides a low noise level by using Whisper Technology. The DAS (Data Acquisition System) offers total load temperature records and is a factory-installed option.
With 85% fewer moving parts, the scroll compressor provides reliability and a longer life. Because of the compressor's efficiency, the system burns less fuel. The new Spectrum controller fits in the dash for driver accessibility and has multipurpose buttons that can even be used with gloved hands. It displays critical alarms, and provides text and graphic information to the driver, in multiple languages if required.
EMI-2000 is standard on the Spectrum TS, providing a more than 60% reduction in the frequency of scheduled maintenance and a more than 25% reduction in lifetime scheduled maintenance costs. Contact Thermo King, 314 W 90th St, Minneapolis MN 55420-3693 for more information.
