Carrier Transicold has announced a series of new equipment and options for its Supra range of truck refrigeration units, including updates for increased useability and emission reduction.
A new cab command panel has been designed to fit the standard DIN format used for audio head units in the automotive sector. To be introduced in 2016, the new design will reportedly make installation simpler and offer improved ergonomics through larger buttons and a large white backlit screen.
Customers will also have the option to specify Supra units with a new package to reduce emissions, using a low emission diesel engine to reduce particulate matter by up to 50 per cent versus the standard engine, plus the use of new R-452A refrigerant.
According to Carrier, R-452A offers a 45 per cent reduction in Global Warming Potential (GWP) while maintaining the same cooling capacity, fuel efficiency, reliability and refrigerant charge as the standard R-404A.
Carrier Transicold used the Solutrans show in France to present a new evaporator range for its Supra and Vector ranges. Suitable for multi-temperature applications, the evaporators feature new styling and are available in four widths ranging from 700 millimeters to 2,200 millimeters.
