ComfortPro® APUs Now Made by Carrier Transicold in Georgia
The complete line of ComfortPro® diesel-powered auxiliary power units (APUs), now manufactured by Carrier Transicold in Athens, Georgia, is available for trucking fleets and owner-operators looking to reduce fuel consumption while complying with anti-idling regulations.
The Carrier Transicold dealer network has sold and serviced ComfortPro APUs since 2006. In 2017, Carrier Transicold acquired select IMPCO road transport product lines, including the ComfortPro APU product line and manufacturing rights from Westport Fuel Systems, Inc. An advanced assembly line for APUs was subsequently added at Carrier Transicold’s flagship transport refrigeration system manufacturing facility in Athens.
“ComfortPro diesel APUs are the trucking industry’s all-around performance leaders,” said David Brondum, director, product management and sustainability, North America Truck, Trailer, Rail, Carrier Transicold. “No other APU offers the full combination of air conditioning, heating, cab power, engine warming, truck battery monitoring and charging, along with optional shore power connectivity found in ComfortPro diesel units.”
Fully featured ComfortPro diesel APUs provide 12,000 BTUs of cooling and up to 10,000 BTUs of heating for year-round driver comfort. Additionally, the 6 kW generator provides ample power for hotel loads, while also helping to maintain truck battery charge and automatically keeping the truck engine warm in cold weather.
To maintain climate control and cab power, ComfortPro APUs consume a small fraction of fuel compared to idling the truck’s engine, thus reducing overall emissions for compliance with state and local anti-idling laws.
Two fully featured diesel-powered ComfortPro units are offered – integrated and stand-alone. A third, power-only model provides electricity for accessories in applications where no cab climate control is needed.
ComfortPro diesel-powered APUs are described in a new 12-page brochure, available online from Carrier Transicold at www.carrier.com/comfortpro. For more information, or to schedule an installation, turn to the experts in Carrier Transicold’s North America dealer network.
