ElectriMax truck refrigeration
system delivers cool benefits
May 12, 2009 1:46 PM
Johnson Refrigerated Truck Bodies announces its latest all-electric truck refrigeration system, ElectriMax, which provides flexibility and operational savings for the refrigerated transport industry. ElectriMax does not have an integral combustion engine; therefore, it is exempt from transport refrigeration unit (TRU) diesel emission regulations in California.
ElectriMax demonstrates flexibility by serving an array of delivery needs—from single- to multiple-temperature bodies with compartments for medium, frozen, and dry goods to versa-temp applications that transport frozen one day and fresh the next. The system operates with electricity instead of diesel fuel, which saves companies as much as 1,400 gallons a truck per year in diesel fuel. Its simple design increases savings by lowering maintenance costs and downtime.
The Johnson fiberglass composite truck body equipped with ElectriMax all-electric refrigeration requires a truck chassis (standard or hybrid) with an automatic transmission and a PTO gear option. The mobile power source is integral to operation of the truck and provides power for the refrigeration. The active forced-air cooling component provides high-performance cooling capacity through an active evaporator while recharging cold plates and the backup power source en route.
