Carrier Transicold’s Vector 8611MT multi-temperature refrigeration unit is designed for trailers that are split lengthwise by a center dividing wall.
The all-electric unit creates two refrigerated compartments without needing a remote evaporator, and it manages both zones more simply and efficiently than mechanically interconnected competitive dual-discharge systems, the company says.
The Vector 8611MT incorporates dual evaporators and fans into a single unit for two-zone cooling, with adjacent compartments for perishable and frozen commodities.
The underlying E-Drive uses a 21 kVA generator to power the all-electric refrigeration system. And the built-in standby electric capabilities can be run using a separate power source.
Most of the refrigerant valves have been eliminated, and the number of braze joints and potential leak points are reduced. If heating is required, the unit offers consistent electric heat, rather than using hot gas, making it possible to shut down the compressor and other refrigeration components during heating.
The Vector 8611MT provides 55,000 BTU of cooling per hour at a setpoint of 35 Fahrenheit and excels at freezing temperatures, Carrier Transicold adds.
