three new innovations
Mar 25, 2010 10:39 AM
At the Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville KY, Thermo King has debuted three products that provide environmental and cost savings: The TriPace electric APU system, the T-1000 SPECTRUM multi-temp unit for trucks, and the SmartPower high-output electric standby option.
Thermo King designed each of these products after listening to customer feedback and performing field and lab tests to ensure these products met operational and environmental concerns.
Features of these new products include:
•The TriPace electric APU system is an all-new electric auxiliary idle reduction and temperature management system designed to maintain comfortable temperature conditions in the truck cab without running an engine. Because it is battery- and not engine-operated, fuel and maintenance costs are significantly reduced. It cools cleanly, quietly, and emission-free, meeting anti-idle and anti-emissions regulations and providing optimum system performance and a low lifecycle cost.
•The T-1000 SPECTRUM unit is a self-powered multi-temperature unit with the latest in scroll compressor technology. It delivers leading-edge features to customers who need more than one temperature zone in their truck. SPECTRUM’s SmartPower electric standby option along with its Advanced Fuel-Saving Control Technology provides greater fuel savings in all ambient conditions, hauling fresh or frozen; while its Tier 4 engine emits 38% less particulate matter and 54% less carbon monoxide than previous engines.
This unit is available in a variety of two- and three-compartment configurations to suit the particular needs of a fleet.
•The SmartPower option provides users the choice of a 24-horsepower high-output electric standby option or the existing 14-hp version. It delivers quicker pre-cool and less run time for customers hauling larger frozen loads, along with a greater overall cooling capacity. Its electric motor not only reduces emissions, waste generation, and noise; but it also reduces engine wear and tear, resulting in reduced maintenance costs throughout the lifecycle of the unit.
