Environmentally-friendly decisions drive Thermo King solutions

Truck News

MNNEAPOLIS, Minn. — Thermo King is engineering its newest trailer units, including the SB series single- and multi-temp units, to offer the lowest life cycle cost while delivering maximum performance with less impact on the environment.

Thermo King’s engines drive the compressor directly, allowing for maximum fuel efficiency, using less energy to generate the same BTU output as compared to electric compressors, says the company. When heating a load, Thermo King uses advanced heat pump technology, which provides efficiency gains when compared to electric heat.

Thermo King also offers electric standby as an option on all of its trailer units, allowing the units to run on electric power rather than diesel. The result is less fuel burned and reduced emissions while the trailer is stationary, in a loading dock or yard.
