Carrier turns Timothy Taylor’s trucks into pub cellars

Keighley, UK: Timothy Taylor’s brewery has a new 32-tonne Daf curtainside rigid with a Carrier Transicold Supra 1150 fridge.

The new vehicle uses Carriers’ refrigeration to replicate the temperature of a pub cellar while on the road.

The new truck joins an all Carrier-cooled fleet, including two existing Scania curtainsiders – an 18-tonner mounted with a Carrier Xarios 600 and a 26-tonner with a Supra 1150 unit – alongside four 13.6m trailers fitted with Carrier Vector 1550 fridges.

“We produce traditional, cask-conditioned beer, so it’s imperative it’s transported at exactly the right temperature – we effectively need to create a pub cellar on wheels,” said Paul Marklew, transport manager, Timothy Taylor’s.

“External conditions can have such a huge impact on the beer inside the casks; we have to be confident the refrigeration systems are up to the task. Once we’d experienced how Carrier’s products performed, we’ve not looked back.”

The beer is carried at between 10 and 12 degrees Celsius with the Supra 1150 providing constant airflow – independent of engine speed – with rapid pull-down and accurate set point control.

“We can always rely on the fridges to hit the temperature sweet spot inside the trucks and trailers quickly and efficiently. As an added bonus, all of our Carrier systems are also extremely fuel efficient, which helps us maintain a cost-effective delivery operation,” Marklew said.
