Thermo King introduces high-tech ROI calculator

Truck News

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. — Thermo King has introduced a return on investment (ROI) calculator for its TriPac Auxiliary Idle Reduction and Temperature Management System. This online tool helps customers understand the financial benefits of purchasing and operating Thermo King TriPac systems and the period of time in which the TriPac systems can pay for themselves.

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.

Customers can go to and click on the “TriPac Savings Calculator” button. They may then follow the prompts to enter their information and will be shown what the annual cost of their idling is, what that cost would be with TriPac, what their annual savings would be as well as how long it would take for the TriPac system to pay for itself.

After running through the calculations, customers can then generate a detailed report for either a single tractor or an entire fleet, showing fuel usage, maintenance and operating cost comparisons. They can also request a quote on a TriPac system from a Thermo King dealer.

The calculator site also features product literature on the TriPac system, customer testimonials, a dealer locator to find the Thermo King dealer nearest to the customer, as well as links to Web sites for the EPA SmartWay program and information on government idle laws and tax rebates for APU purchasers.
