New Engineless Refrigeration Unit from Carrier Transicold Chills Smaller Trucks, Larger Cargo Vans
Carrier Transicold’s sleek new model 35X direct-drive unit provides refrigeration for perishable and frozen cargoes for small- to medium-sized box trucks and large delivery vans. Carrier Transicold is a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).
“With an attractive modern exterior design, the 35X unit expands our direct-drive product line, offering excellent fresh and frozen protection for cargo vans and box trucks in the 12- to 14-foot range,” said Scott Parker, product manager, truck products, Carrier Transicold.
The new unit is featured by Carrier Transicold at the North American Commercial Vehicle Show, held in Atlanta this week.
“Direct-drive units in Carrier Transicold’s X-series are engineless, vehicle-powered systems, providing an economical alternative to diesel-powered units,” Parker explained. “They also can help fleets reduce their environmental impact since there is no additional fuel consumption or related emissions from a dedicated refrigeration unit engine.”
The 35X unit provides refrigeration capacity of 10,500 BTUs at 35 degrees Fahrenheit (100 F ambient). As with other units in the series – the 20X, 40X and 50X – the 35X includes an exterior-mounted condenser unit, a compressor that mounts to the truck engine and a narrow-profile SlimLine™ evaporator that fits tightly to the ceiling of the cargo area, helping to maximize cargo space. As a split system, the 35X unit provides flexible mounting options for the condenser, either to the nose of a box truck or roof of a van.
The unit’s Cab Command™ 2 digital controller provides quick and easy setpoint configuration and the ability to program the unit for automatic defrost cycles. It also offers diagnostic capabilities and hour-meters to track usage for service interval planning.
