Supra units cut noise, simplify service
Jan 1, 2006 12:00 PM
Improving performance and appearance, three new diesel-powered truck refrigeration units have been introduced by Carrier Transicold, a business unit of United Technologies Corp.
The Supra 650, 750, and 850 units are designed for worry-free protection of perishable and frozen food and other refrigerated cargo in medium to large trucks.
These units have a sleek contemporary housing that reduces sound levels by nearly half compared with previous models. The acoustically designed housing is manufactured using a composite material that is damage-resistant and easy to clean, including a bottom panel that improves sound quality.
The new design also offers improvements that simplify maintenance by allowing basic service inspections without having to open doors or remove panels. For example, the operator can easily check engine oil level, check and add engine coolant, and inspect the refrigerant level without opening the unit. New handles attached to the frame on both sides of the unit provide secure, convenient grips for service technicians.
Supra units continue to use the clean-burning CT3-44 TriVortex diesel engine and either a two- or four-cylinder compressor, depending on the model. All units in the series are controlled by the Cab Command microprocessor with a driver friendly in-cab digital readout.
All Supra units also have an electric standby motor option for reduced noise and exhaust emissions at the loading dock and for compliance with environmental regulations.
