SLXi TRU lighter, cooler, smaller

Thermo King’s SLXi Local transport refrigeration unit (TRU) is 200 lb. lighter than competing options, supporting single temperature distribution fleets.

The unit’s slim profile reduces the required tractor-trailer gap by seven inches, helping to protect the TRU when turning corners on tight city streets.

The Thermo King Whisper kit is standard on all the SLXi Local units, ensuring they are three decibels quieter than similar units.

The TRU also runs on R452 A refrigerant.
