TriPace Electric APU System; T-1000 Spectrum Multi-Temp Unit and SmartPower High Output Electric Standby Option

Saying that the products offered innovative solutions, reduced cost and met applicable regulatory and environmental standards, Thermo King introduced three new products – the TriPace Electric APU System, the T-1000 Spectrum multi-temp unit for trucks and the SmartPower High Output Electric Standby Option.

Thermo King Corporation, a business of Ingersoll Rand, manufacturers of transport temperature control systems for mobile applications, said that the products, unveiled at the Mid- America Trucking Show in Louisville, Kentucky held from March 25-27, were designed based on customer feedback and extensive field and lab tests, and claimed that they would help run cleaner, quieter, more energy-efficient fleets and meet operational and environmental concerns.

  • It is a self-powered multi-temperature unit with the latest scroll compressor technology.
  • The SmartPower electric standby option along with its advanced fuelsaving control technology provides fuel savings in all ambient conditions.
  • Its Tier 4 engine emits 38% less particulate matter and 54% less carbon monoxide than previous engines.
  • It is available in two and threecompartment configurations, providing flexibility.

SmartPower High Output Electric Standby Option

  • It provides the choice of a 24 HP highoutput electric standby option or the existing 14 HP version.
  • It delivers quicker pre-cool and less run-time for customers hauling larger frozen loads, along with a greater overall cooling capacity.
