Carrier Transicold introduced its new thin-profile Vector 8400R refrigeration unit for domestic intermodal containers.
“Carrier Transicold intermodal units play a vital role in helping California to ship agricultural products throughout North America, and lifetime CARB compliance helps our customers achieve maximum value for their investment,” says Bill Maddox, senior manager – product management, Carrier Transicold. “While innovating to achieve greater emissions performance, we also focused on optimizing fuel efficiency, making the Vector 8400R an even more attractive upgrade for intermodal carriers.”
- The Vector 8400R delivers highly efficient refrigeration and freezing performance in a space-saving, thin-profile design, and surpasses EPA Tier 4 requirements by cutting particulate emissions for lifetime compliance with California Air Resources Board (CARB) requirements without the need for future exhaust control systems.
- About 40% thinner than a traditional intermodal refrigeration unit, the Vector 8400R fits within a trim envelope and maximizes usable container space for more efficient operations.
- Built on a proven platform, the unit has an advanced new engine with common-rail fuel injection that optimizes fuel delivery for improved efficiency.
- In combination with the new engine, a diesel oxidation catalyst pushes particulate, hydrocarbon and NOx emissions to new lows without requiring complex exhaust gas recirculation systems found with competitive units.
- Carrier Transicold’s E Drive all-electric refrigeration technology consistently and efficiently delivers high refrigeration capacities, powerful airflow and fast pulldown.
- Vector 8400R units are equipped with Carrier Transicold’s Lynx Fleet telematics solution for remote monitoring of temperatures, location, movement and unit operating performance.
