New models include the first PIEK-certified version of its flagship Vector HE 19 trailer unit, which will now operate below 60 dB, the equivalent of normal conversation, in either a mono or multi-temperature configuration. Carrier Transicold has met these strict PIEK levels whilst packaging the new system within the regular Vector HE 19 chassis. The previous generation PIEK-certified Vector 1950 City had its diesel engine housed in an insulated cabinet underneath the trailer.
Available now, the new PIEK-certified Vector HE 19 is an addition to the range, offering operators the same 10% reduction in weight, 19% reduction in energy consumption and up to 30% reduction in fuel consumption versus the previous generation Vector 1950.
Also debuting in the UK and Ireland this year will be the new Xarios 8 refrigeration system (pictured) for the larger rigid truck market. The new unit has improved efficiency and a third more cooling capacity compared to the current Xarios 600, along with a very low refrigerant charge, a new evaporator ventilation motor and brushless condenser ventilation system to reduce wear on parts, and lower maintenance costs.
The third new model Carrier Transicold will bring to market is the Neos HE 100 S for light commercial vehicles. This electrically-driven system optimises energy consumption, while maintaining a cooling capacity and look almost equivalent to the standard Neos 100 S system. The unit features new technology, enabling a 35% reduction in energy consumption to 58 Amps. It also offers precise temperature control of an insulated load space varying in size from two to 6m3.
