Carrier Transicold unveils thin-profile Vector 8400R intermodal unit

by Today's Trucking

Carrier Transicold has introduced its new thin-profile Vector 8400R refrigeration unit for domestic intermodal containers. It is about 40% thinner than a traditional intermodal refrigeration unit. Up to 7% more cargo can be carried than with traditional units – 15 pallet rows rather than 14, according to a news release.

The unit has an advanced new engine with common-rail fuel injection that optimizes fuel delivery for improved efficiency. A diesel oxidation catalyst pushes particulate, hydrocarbon and NOx emissions lower without requiring exhaust gas recirculation systems.

The E Drive all-electric refrigeration technology delivers high refrigeration capacities, powerful airflow and fast pulldown. The refrigeration and freezing capacities remain constant when using its integrated plug-in electric standby capability.

It is equipped with Lynx Fleet telematics solution for remote monitoring of temperatures, location, movement and unit operating performance (subscription required). Carrier Transicold offers an optional 50-watt rail-optimized solar charging system designed for placement on the unit door.
