Diesel, hybrid and zero-emission, all-electric fridges from Thermo King

The new Thermo King SXLi range is 10 to 20% more fuel efficient

Birmingham, UK: Thermo King is showing its SLXi single- and multi-temperature trailer fridges and the new Hybrid Drive Trailer concept using Frigoblock inverter technology at the CV Show next month.

Also on show will be the nhe new Thermo King SXLi range that is 10 to 20% more fuel efficient than its predecessor, and the industry’s first fully telematics-enabled refrigerated trailer unit, delivering visibility of the unit and load condition with Thermo King’s new TK BlueBox communication device and Bluetooth as standard.

The new Hybrid Drive Trailer concept combines technologies from Thermo King and Frigoblock and will become part of the SLXi refrigerated trailer platform.

The Hybrid Drive Trailer concept offers additional fuel and operational savings, as well as low emission and noise levels enabling transport companies access to inner city areas and restricted zones.

The Thermo King Hybrid Drive allows a refrigerated trailer, attached to a tractor with a Frigoblock Enviro Drive inverter filter, to run electrically. This enables the trailer refrigeration unit to be powered as a hybrid drive, by either the electric alternator or through its own independent diesel engine.
