Carrier Transicold’s new Supra 60-series truck refrigeration units feature improved refrigeration performance, enhanced reliability, and compliance with 2013 emissions requirements of the US Environmental Protection Agency.
The new Supra 60-series comprises five single-temperature models—the Supra 560, 660, 760, 860, and 960—covering the full spectrum of straight truck refrigeration needs, with refrigeration capacities up to 32,000 Btu (at 35° F) for the Supra 960.
“Supra diesel-powered truck units have a long-standing reputation for providing high performance and reliability by using systems engineered for lower engine and compressor rpms than competitive models,” said David Dunn, product manager, truck products, Carrier Transicold. “Lower speeds mean better durability, longevity, and reliability over the life of the unit. Our new 60-series continues to build upon that legacy.”
Improvements offered by the 60-series include:
•Optimized standby systems, resulting in refrigeration capacity improvements for most models and the highest electric standby capacities among truck refrigeration systems available in North America.
•New high-performance, maintenance-free integrated fan/motor assemblies with expected 10,000-plus hour motor life.
•A maintenance-saving Extended Service Interval (ESI) oil system with a 1,500-hour service period.
•Various drive system enhancements for better performance and reliability.
•Improvements to the electrical system, such as use of sonic welds and elimination of splice points for fewer connections and increased reliability.
Engines are certified to the EPA Tier 4 standard for non-road engines of less than 25 horsepower, which for 2013 adds a not-to-exceed (NTE) requirement. The NTE standard requires that engines not exceed maximum allowable emissions regardless of how they operate, including factors such as altitude and ambient temperature.
