A new evaporator blower assembly from Thermo King lets transport customers gain improved energy and operational efficiency for their single- and multi-temperature refrigeration units while lowering fuel costs.
Thermo King, a manufacturer of transport temperature control systems for mobile applications and a brand of Ingersoll Rand, has enhanced its Spectrum and SB-30 series units with the Smooth Air Blower. This product can increase cooling capacity by up to 4% and lower fuel usage by up to 7%.
The Smooth Air Blower enhancement is now standard on Spectrum multi-temperature refrigeration units and SB-30 series single-temperature refrigeration units, including the SB-130, SB-230, and SB-330. These refrigeration systems can help owners and operators reduce fuel and operating costs and minimize driver involvement with the refrigeration units.
Requiring 24% less power than previous-generation blower assemblies, the Smooth Air Blower features a more efficient blade design resulting in a smaller blower assembly. Smoother inlet air means less friction and less energy consumed, resulting in increased capacity.
“Fuel costs, especially now, are a major part of our customers’ budgets, so Thermo King is working to find innovative solutions like this to help them lower costs and increase efficiency,” said Tom Kampf, product manager for Thermo King. “The Smooth Air Blower Assembly also helps our customers improve sustainability and overall efficiency.”
