Thermo King has introduced an ROI (Return On Investment) calculator for its TriPac Auxiliary Idle Reduction and Temperature Management System. It’s an online tool that’s
said to help customers understand the financial benefits of purchasing and operating TriPac systems and the relatively short period of time in which they can pay for

The TriPac system allows truckers to eliminate unnecessary idling and save money while providing engine preheating, battery charging, climate control and power in truck cabs.

Go to www.thermoking.com/tripac and click on the ‘TriPac Savings Calculator’ button. Then follow the prompts to enter your information and to see what the annual cost of your idling is, what that cost would be with a TriPac unit, the annual savings, and the APU payback period for your particular case.

After running through the calculations, you can then generate a detailed report for either a single tractor or an entire fleet, showing fuel usage, maintenance and operating cost comparisons. Naturally, you can also request a quote on a TriPac system from a TK dealer. The calculator site also features product literature on the TriPac system, customer testimonials, and a dealer locator.
