LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Thermo King unveiled a new multi-temp unit for straight trucks, an electric TriPac auxiliary power unit (APU) and a new high-output SmartPower electric standby option for its trailer refrigeration units at the Mid-America Trucking Show.
Straight truck multi-temp
The T-1000 Spectrum provides fuel savings, lower life-cycle costs, reduced emissions and improved reliability for customers requiring multiple temperature zones in straight trucks, the company announced.
It’s a self-powered multi-temp unit that features the latest scroll compressor technology, the company announced.
“The T-1000 Spectrum is available in a variety of two- and three-compartment configurations to suit a fleet’s particular needs,” said Scott Bates, truck product manager with Thermo King. “It has unmatched flexibility to accommodate the most demanding loads and delivery routes.”
TriPac Electric APU
Also new to Thermo King is a battery-powered TriPac electric APU. The system doesn’t require a diesel engine, allowing it to run quieter and cleaner than diesel-powered APUs, the company announced.
“Thermo King continues to deliver innovative solutions to reduce idling for customers,” said Dwayne Cowan, APU product manager with Thermo King. “The TriPac(e) will provide optimum system performance, a low life-cycle cost and will address environmental concerns.”
Thermo King also unveiled a high-output version of its SmartPower electric standby option, which will be available on select Thermo King trailer refrigeration units (TRUs).
Customers will be able to choose between the existing 14 hp electric standby option or the new 24 hp offering. The 24 hp option provides faster pre-cooling and requires less run-time for customers hauling large, frozen loads, the company announced.
“We are offering our customers the capability to further configure their unit to exactly match the requirements of their business,” said Tom Kampf, trailer product manager at Thermo King.
The SmartPower HO option is available on Thermo King’s SB-210+ and Spectrum SB trailer units.
