Aug. 28, 2012: Thermo King Launches New Temperature Control Trailer Platform

August 28, 2012
BLOOMINGTON, Minn. — Thermo King announced that it is launching Precedent™, a new trailer temperature control platform, which the company said is built to deliver double-digit fuel savings, best-in-class performance, and lower life cycle costs, while providing regulatory compliance for trailer owners and operators.

Beginning Jan. 1, 2013, Thermo King, a manufacturer of transport temperature control systems for a variety of mobile applications and a brand of Ingersoll Rand, will also offer a range of truck and auxiliary power unit (APU) solutions compliant with U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Tier IV final regulations for engine emissions.

The company said the Precedent features a completely new platform for the trailer market designed to be fully compliant with the new EPA Tier IV final regulations. Units include:

• The S-600, which is a greater-than-25 horsepower single-temperature unit with an evergreen engine for use in California.

• The S-700, which is a greater-than-25 horsepower high-capacity single-temperature unit with an evergreen engine for use in California.

• The C-600, which is a less-than-25 horsepower single-temperature unit with an allowed useful life in California of seven years.

The Precedent platform features a new Diesel Direct Electric architecture to deliver optimum efficiencies, temperature control, and double digit fuel savings across real-world applications.

Thermo King also said its T-Series truck refrigeration units will be enhanced to achieve compliance with EPA Tier IV final regulations and be available in the first quarter of 2013. Compliance will be achieved through a combination of technologies including new engines and an electronic throttling valve (ETV) to deliver improved pulldown and fuel efficiency.

The company said testing demonstrates that the ETV saves up to 30 percent in fuel, reaches setpoint up to 50 percent faster, and runs the engine up to 17 percent less — translating to significant operational and environmental savings for fleets throughout the life of the unit. The full T-Series range will be offered in 2013 with new model names, including T-580R, T-680R, T-880R, T-1080R, T-680S, T-880S, T-1080S, and T-1080S Spectrum multi-temperature units.

The TriPac Evolution APU will lower overall truck fuel consumption, reduce emissions, and provide driver comfort, said Thermo King. This solution, which can be ordered after Jan. 1, 2013, for shipment in the second quarter of 2013, meets Tier IV EPA final regulations requirements while leveraging new patented technology to drive unit performance, efficiency, and user productivity.
