Thermo King, a manufacturer of transport temperature control systems for a variety of mobile applications and a brand of Ingersoll Rand, now offers the industry’s first innovative microchannel coils as a standard feature on its class-leading T-Series nosemount temperature control units. The T-Series from Thermo Kingprovides a complete range of self-powered temperature control units for 5.5- to 9.5-meter rigid trucks hauling fresh or frozen loads that deliver top performance, reliability and ease-of-use.

The microchannel coil is replacing the copper and aluminum tube-and-fin condenser coils on all units in the range. Microchannel coils have been used in the automotive industry for a number of years and Thermo King will now be the first manufacturer to apply this technology to nosemounted diesel powered refrigeration systems.

The upgraded units provide reduced lifetime cost of ownership, lower weight, greater fuel efficiency and increased capacity and overall sustainability.Enhanced in response to customer feedback, the upgraded solution features a 2.5 percent weight decrease and a capacity increase of up to 15 percent. Overall system efficiency has improved by up to 21 percent while reducing refrigerant charge by as much as 28 percent, making it the segment’s lowest refrigerant charge. 

Refrigeration capacity for the T-1000R refrigeration unit has also increased by 15 percent at fresh Agreement for Perishable Transport (ATP) conditions while offering the segment’s lowest fuel consumption. Similarly, refrigeration capacity for the T-1200R unit has increased by 9 percent for fresh ATP conditions, making it one of the highest refrigeration capacity units in the industry.

“The enhanced T-Series units provide the industry leading performance on which customers have come to depend upon while reducing costs and increasing overall efficiency and sustainability,” said Pascal Richard, transport product leader for Thermo King in the Europe, Middle East, India and Africa (EMEIA) region of Ingersoll Rand. “The reduced refrigerant charge also supports our customers’ commitment to increased environmental stewardship.”

 The T-Series range of units has been designed to be used in a variety of applications from urban food distribution to specialty high-value medical and pharmaceutical transportation. It is ideal for short to medium haul transport, such as daily deliveries into the city for local grocery stores, dairy transport and other perishable products.
