ComfortPro® Diesel APUs Improved for Better Reliability with Less Maintenance

The latest generation of ComfortPro® diesel-powered auxiliary power units (APUs) from Carrier Transicold includes upgrades that improve reliability, reduce maintenance and double the length of the service interval.

Among the latest enhancements are a new automotive-style multi-V drive belt and a tensioner that automatically adjusts the belt to help maintain full voltage output of the generator when the APU is running. This eliminates manual belt tensioning, as periodically required with earlier models.

Also, the system now uses high-performance CK-4 heavy-duty engine oil, enabling the maintenance interval to be extended from 1,000 to 2,000 hours.

“Backed by Carrier Transicold’s extensive dealer network, ComfortPro diesel APUs offer the trucking industry the most well-rounded suite of performance and features,” said Ryan Rubly, product manager, alternative power, Carrier Transicold.

“When Carrier Transicold acquired the ComfortPro line last year, one of our top priorities was engaging our engineers to improve the APUs based on feedback from our dealers and customers,” he said, adding, “These latest design revisions significantly advance the product in terms of service ease.”

Carrier Transicold offers a range of anti-idling and comfort solutions with options to customize the APU to specific needs. Fully featured ComfortPro diesel-powered APUs offer air conditioning, heating, cab power, engine warming, truck battery monitoring and charging, plus optional shore power connectivity – more capabilities than standard APU offerings from other providers. A power-only model provides electricity for household accessories for applications where no cab climate control is needed.

Additional details on ComfortPro diesel-powered APUs can be found in a 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.
