Carrier Transicold unveils new Vector fridge

Rueil-Malmaison, France: Carrier Transicold Europe launched its next generation temperature-controlled trailer system – the Vector HE 19 (High Efficiency) at the IAA Commercial Vehicle show.

The redesigned system improves fuel consumption by up to 30%, reduces unit weight by 10%, and achieves lower noise levels, Carrier says. Operating costs are also lower.

“The new Vector HE 19 unit delivers huge performance advantages for our customers in just about every area,” said Bertrand Gueguen, president, International Truck Trailer, Carrier Transicold.

“The unit combines current innovative technology, like the all-electric E-Drive, with new technology designed to significantly improve performance and positively impact fleet efficiency and sustainability. We’re looking forward to improving our customers’ fleet efficiency and performance.”

The new Vector HE 19 unit includes:

  • Redesigned upper airflow management, creating much more efficient cold production
  • Single evaporator fan
  • New, Stage V compliant diesel engine with electronic engine control
  • The proven performance of a hermetic compressor and economizer
  • The efficiency of a microchannel heat exchanger condenser.

This new unit has been built around Carrier Transicold’s E-Drive all-electric technology, which works by removing the mechanical transmissions found in conventional belt-driven equipment and engine power into electricity via a generator, which drives the refrigeration system. One of the key benefits – a sustaining refrigerant containment for a projected average annual leak rate 3%.

“The Vector HE 19 system combines the E-Drive technology with an improved multi-speed engine design, bringing fuel savings of up to 30 per cent when compared to the existing Vector 1950 – the equivalent of saving 5.4 tons of CO2 annually. It is also 82 kilograms lighter and operates at at 3 dB (A) lower. There is also an available engineless option for emissions reductions.”
