Refrigeration unit range expanded by Carrier Transicold02 July 2010

Carrier Transicold has extended its alternator-driven NEOS range of refrigeration units with the launch of the NEOS 100S. This conventional split system concept is designed for commercial vehicles that have a loadspace of up to 6m³.

The new model joins its sister unit NEOS 100 slim to complete a versatile product line-up for small van operators who want superior load-protection combined with environmentally sound technologies. It is mounted on the roof of the vehicle, thereby saving any intrusion on the cab, and it is said to fit most makes and models of commercial vehicle.

Both of the NEOS models use power from the vehicle's alternator to maintain a constant cooling or heating capacity regardless of engine speed. This setup guarantees that the temperature is kept accurate, and ensures a faster pull-down whilst reducing engine load, resulting in improved fuel consumption.

Justin Grace, managing director of Carrier Transicold UK stated: "There is a continued drive from fleets to adopt refrigeration solutions that offer improved environmental credentials, and the innovative NEOS range is the perfect solution. With 80% fewer fittings than an equivalent system running on conventional technology, the NEOS 100 and 100S systems can operate with less refrigerant and with a reduced risk of leaks, which further increases product reliability.

With reduced maintenance requirements versus conventional belt-driven systems, the two NEOS models use chlorine-free non-ozone-depleting R134a refrigerant to deliver a cooling or heating capacity of 1,140W. This enables them to reach 0°C inside the loadspace at 30°C ambient with a high airflow of 700m³/h.
