Thermo King at Hanover

Hanover, Germany: Thermo King has introduced a cryogenic refrigeration system and extended exiting ranges with new equipment.

“Thermo King is unveiling customer-driven solutions at IAA that provide lower lifecycle and fuel costs and greater flexibility in multiple-temperature transport,” said Pascal Richard, regional segment leader for the Thermo King portfolio in the Europe, Middle East, India and Africa region for Ingersoll Rand.

The T-500 R single-temperature nose-mount fridge extends the T-Series platform providing a mini-sized unit for truck boxes less than 5.5 metres long. The T-500R unit replaces the MD-100 unit, which is being phased out at the end of this month.

The new unit consumes up to 12% less fuel, while significantly lowering carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, and provides a 27% increase in operating efficiency at fresh Agreement for Perishable Transport (ATP) conditions.

Since fuel costs represent approximately half of the solution’s total lifecycle costs, reduced fuel costs can add up quickly. The standard T-500R has been designed to achieve up to a 55% reduction in noise levels over previous models without any loss of cooling performance.

The T-500R unit features unmatched capacities in its segment, delivering up to 5,100W at 0 degrees C and 2,800 W at -20 degrees C at ATP conditions. These solutions are ideal for urban distribution and dairy transport customers operating smaller trucks

The new CryoTech unit uses Thermo King’sSR-3 controller to provide single and multi-temperature control of up to three zones, improving temperature control up to 50% over existing CryoTech systems. The unit has the same interface and displays already available on the  SLXe and T-Series ranges.

The SR-3 controller offers fleet tracking capabilities as well, enabling users to retrieve diagnostics using a thumb drive. This unit will also feature the industry’s first dual-mode cellular/WiFi monitoring capabilities delivered through the Thermo King TracKing system.

Thermo King currently offers the CryoTech CT-10, CT-10 Spectrum and CT-15 Spectrum systems for single and multi-temperature truck and trailer applications.

Thermo King is introducing new V-Series Spectrum solutions: the V-200 Max Spectrum unit and the V-300 Max Spectrum. These units, powered by the vehicle, provide capacities for smaller trucks and vans, allowing controlled temperature settings for dual-temperature zone transport. The configuration is adjustable from fresh-fresh, fresh-frozen, frozen-fresh, to frozen-frozen.

The V-200 Max Spectrum, the smallest unit in the V-Series Spectrum platform, is designed for vans or trucks up to 12m3. The V300 Max Spectrum can provide cooling for vans and trucks up to 16m3 and can be configured with three evaporator options. Both offer temperature ranges between -25 degrees C and +22 degrees C.
