Vector 6600MT unit raises
capacity, lowers fuel use

Featuring next-generation environmental technologies, the new Vector 6600MT hybrid trailer refrigeration unit from Carrier Transicold raises the bar on multi-temperature trailer refrigeration system capacity while reducing fuel consumption and emissions. Carrier Transicold introduced the unit at the Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville KY.
The Vector 6600MT unit provides high refrigeration capacity and delivers up to 20% greater fuel efficiency than its predecessor to reduce carbon emissions. It features high operating efficiencies, reduced maintenance requirements versus conventional belt-drive systems, and an electric standby option for stationary units. Technological enhancements to system components and operating software and a more efficient system design enable higher performance and greater efficiencies than possible with Carrier’s first-generation hybrid systems.
Due to the less efficient add-on nature of standby components in a conventional unit, Vector units can deliver up to 85% more cooling capacity in standby mode than a conventional unit.
“By taking advantage of AC power, fuel is conserved, emissions are eliminated, noise is reduced, and operating savings of 40% to 70% can be realized,” said David Kiefer, director of marketing and product management for Carrier Transicold.
