Carrier Transicold Germany offers springtime refrigeration unit checks



GEORGSMARIENHÜTTE, Germany, April, xx 2014 – Spring is a good time for transport companies to get a head start on ensuring refrigeration equipment performance during the warm summer months. Carrier Transicold Germany’s service centers, using genuine replacement parts, can help transport companies to minimize downtime when equipment needs to operate at peak levels to protect the integrity of sensitive, temperature-controlled cargo. Carrier Transicold helps improve global transport and shipping temperature control with a complete line of equipment for refrigerated trucks, trailers and containers; the company is a part of UTC Building & Industrial Systems, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).
“Now is the time for transport companies to check the efficiency of their refrigeration units,” says Michael Radke, service director, Carrier Transicold Germany and Austria. “Our workshops and service partners offer extensive inspections that can help to keep transport refrigeration units running in optimal condition, and reduce downtime due to unplanned repairs. Among other inspections, they perform leakage tests; check batteries, oil levels, V-belts, coolant and antifreeze; and assess heating and defrost functions.”
If replacing worn parts is necessary, Carrier Transicold Germany advises using genuine replacement parts, which can help extend the life cycle of the equipment. To enable the resolution of potential issues in the least possible time, Carrier Transicold Germany’s workshops also carry more than 19,000 original parts for almost any type of repair.
“Regular maintenance and the installation of genuine parts is a decisive factor that contributes to a long life cycle,” Radke says.
Carrier Transicold’s European call centre is also available 24 hours per day and manned by knowledgeable staff - capable of speaking 21 languages – who can direct customers to one of 600 Carrier Transicold service partners across Europe. The call centre can then work with the field team to find the right solution.
