Carrier Transicold’s model 35X direct-drive unit provides refrigeration for perishable and frozen cargo in small- to medium-sized box trucks and large delivery vans.
The 35X unit provides refrigeration capacity of 10,500 BTUs at 35 degrees Fahrenheit. The 35X includes an exterior-mounted condenser unit, a compressor that mounts to the truck engine and a narrow-profile SlimLine evaporator that fits tightly to the ceiling of the cargo area, helping to maximize cargo space.
As a split system, the 35X unit provides flexible mounting options for the condenser, either to the nose of a box truck or roof of a van.
The unit’s Cab Command 2 digital controller provides quick and easy setpoint configuration and the ability to program the unit for automatic defrost cycles. It also offers diagnostic capabilities and hour-meters to track usage for service interval planning.
“Direct-drive units in Carrier Transicold’s X-series are engineless, vehicle-powered systems, providing an economical alternative to diesel-powered units,” said Scott Parker, product manager for truck products at Carrier Transicold. “They also can help fleets reduce their environmental impact since there is no additional fuel consumption or related emissions from a dedicated refrigeration unit engine.”
