Vector 1800MT trailer refrigeration unit uses diesel electric technology
May 1, 2006 12:00 PM
Carrier Corp, a business unit of United Technologies Corp, introduced the Vector 1800MT, which uses diesel electric technology.
Designed for multi-temperature trailer applications, the Vector 1800MT uses Carrier's patented Deltek technology for system reliability, performance, and an estimated 30% reduction in maintenance cost.
The Vector 1800MT also employs Carrier's Advance microprocessor control, which delivers precise refrigeration control, driver set-up ease, and fuel optimization options.
The Vector's streamlined design eliminates two-thirds of serviceable mechanical components while using half the refrigerant charge of conventional systems.
Other Vector 1800MT features include:
Built-in electric standby capability for fuel savings, emissions and noise reduction, and regulatory compliance at the loading dock.
100% electric heat, instead of hot gas, for constant heating capacity independent of ambient temperature.
The Vector 1800MT relies primarily on three major components to deliver refrigeration and heating: the direct-injection diesel engine; the aircraft-quality Hamilton Sundstrand electric generator; and an electrically driven, sealed compressor.
The system lends itself well to electric standby, which is why every Vector 1800MT comes with built-in 460-volt plug-in capability.
Matched with Carrier single- and dual-discharge evaporators, the Vector 1800MT offers 11 different trailer configurations. For more details, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
