Supra 950MT a high-capacity performer
Jan 1, 2009 12:00 PM
The new Supra 950MT truck refrigeration unit from Carrier Transicold delivers a high-capacity performance for a multi-temperature refrigeration system for straight trucks, plus better serviceability, lower sound output, and improved appearance compared to its predecessor.
Supra 950MT has a cooling capacity of 20,500 Btu/hour at a setpoint of 0°F at 100° F ambient conditions. As a split system, it uses separate SlimLINE evaporators for each of two cooling compartments within the cargo area. Without a host evaporator at the front, truck owners have greater flexibility configuring compartments.
Electrical systems were redesigned to be simpler, more efficient, and more robust. Heating functionality no longer requires a separate capacitor module, simplifying installation.
The new unit features a dual-purpose standby motor. Rather than having separate components, the motor also works as an induction generator, providing power to run heaters and fans. Standby capability allows the unit to be plugged into a power supply when stationary, eliminating the need to consume diesel fuel during loading and unloading.
Supra 950MT unit also includes an improved belt tensioning system and an extended oil drain fitting. The unit's housing has a more streamlined appearance while also offering better acoustics, viewing ports for checking fluid levels without opening doors on the unit, and grab bars on both sides.
