Thin is In! Vector HE 19 Unit a Perfect Fit for Intermodal
The sleek contemporary design of Carrier Transicold’s new Vector™ HE 19 unit is attractive for sure, but what’s really turning heads is the unit’s ability to provide the greatest cooling and freezing capacities of any domestic intermodal container refrigeration system in its thin-profile class.
HE means high-efficiency, and along with its efficiency, the unit elevates the amount of cooling capacity available – 16% greater deep-frozen capacity and 20% more refrigeration capacity than its class competitor.
“The Vector HE 19 unit is trim and high performing, delivering more BTUs of cooling per hour per RPM than any model in the thin-profile class,” said Bill Maddox, senior manager, Product Management, Carrier Transicold. “By that measure, it’s as much as 36% more efficient than its competition.”
It is also a sustainability leader. The Vector HE 19 unit is Carrier Transicold’s first North American transport refrigeration system to use the next-generation refrigerant R-452A exclusively. Developed for lower environmental impact, R-452A has a global warming potential about half that of the refrigerant traditionally used in transport applications.
About 40% thinner than a traditional intermodal refrigeration unit, the Vector HE 19 unit is especially well suited for 53-foot domestic intermodal containers because it optimizes space utilization within, improving shipping efficiency over rail and highway. Up to 7% more cargo can be carried – 15 pallet rows, rather than 14.
As with other models in the Vector platform, the new unit features patented E-Drive™ technology developed by Carrier Transicold. Intelligent controls automatically activate individual components of the all-electric refrigeration system, such as the compressor and fans, running only what it needs, precisely when needed, so components run less and last longer than traditional counterparts.
The Vector HE 19 unit can be coupled with Carrier Transicold’s eSolutions™ telematics system for remote monitoring of system operation and container temperatures, and for enhanced capabilities, such as remote software updates, data downloads and system diagnostics.
