TAMPA, Fla. – Carrier has introduced a new hybrid system for multi-temp trailer applications.

The Vector 1800MT was introduced to the trucking industry at the Technology and Maintenance Council event in Tampa. The new reefer is designed for multi-temperature trailer applications, and Carrier officials insist it will reduce maintenance costs by about 30 per cent. The system uses Carrier’s Deltek technology to deliver improved reliability and performance, company officials said. The Vector 1800MT is also the first multi-temp system that uses Carrier’s Advance microprocessor control, delivering precise refrigeration control, driver set-up ease and fuel optimization options, the company said.

“Combining the muscle of diesel and dependability of electricity, the powerful Deltek technology on which the Vector 1800MT is based delivers unprecedented system reliability, performance and value,” said Ignacio Aguerrevere, director of marketing and product development with Carrier Transicold .

The Vector’s streamlined design eliminates two-thirds of the serviceable mechanical components found in conventional systems. For more information on the system, visit
