New Truck Refrigeration Unit Boasts “Supra®” Powers
The Supra® S6 new-generation truck refrigeration unit from Carrier Transicold combines improved performance, efficiency and reliability with a contemporary new design, making it a welcome addition to fleets that deliver food, pharmaceuticals, flowers and other refrigerated goods.
Designed for small- to medium-sized trucks, the Supra S6 unit is the first in a new series of diesel-powered truck units being rolled out by Carrier Transicold.
“Our Supra platform is known for outstanding dependability and high standards of performance,” said Scott Parker, product manager, truck products, Carrier Transicold. “With the new series, we’ve improved upon the platform, giving it all-new ‘Supra’ powers."
“As an example of the many significant improvements, the Supra S6 unit is the first truck refrigeration unit to use Carrier Transicold’s sophisticated APX™ control technology, which has been proven on thousands of Carrier Transicold trailer refrigeration systems,” Parker said.
With 20 times faster processing speeds than the original, the next-generation APX control technology incorporated into the Supra platform provides intelligent performance optimization, automatic trip data recording and enhanced system diagnostics. Drivers can conveniently tap into the APX system’s functionality through the dash-mounted Cab Command™ control interface, with a backlit LCD display that provides at-a-glance operating information.
The Supra S6 unit seamlessly integrates with Carrier Transicold’s eSolutions™ telematics offering, enabling remote monitoring and control of the refrigeration system along with other capabilities.
The Supra unit’s wraparound honeycomb grille provides clean lines and is removable for easy access to internal components.
“The design improvements are much more than skin deep,” Parker said. “The Supra S6 unit introduces a streamlined internal architecture for key components, including the diesel engine and compressor. The result is a more logical configuration, using less refrigerant and fewer parts that perform more efficiently, providing greater cooling capacity and faster pulldown than the model it succeeds.”
Other enhancements enabled the service interval to be extended to 2,000 hours, a 33 percent improvement over the previous model.
