LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Carrier Transicold was at the Mid-America Trucking Show to showcase its lowemissions trailer product line. The models on display at the show boast improved fuel-efficiency and lower sound output than previous models, the company said. They also exceeded emissions requirements from both the Environmental Protection Agency and the California Air Resources Board.
“Carrier solutions allow an environmentally-conscious trucker or fleet owner to satisfy EPA and CARB minimums and to achieve the best overall particulate matter reduction,” said David Kiefer, product manager, trailer products.
Carrier’s newest trailer refrigeration units (TRUs) surpass EPA particulate matter requirements by 30%, company officials pointed out, which is also about 20% better than other models in the marketplace. They also produce 19% less NOx and hydrocarbons than the latest EPA allowance. In addition, the newest TRUs are 1-2% more fuelefficient and about 1 dB quieter than previous models. The latest engines will be found on models 2100, 2100A and 2500A reefers from Carrier’s X2 Series, as well as the Ultima, Ultra and Genesis models.
