Thermo King Electronic Throttling Valve
The Thermo King Electronic Throttling Valve is designed to reduce fuel costs, extend maintenance intervals and improve temperature control performance on its T-series single-temp truck units with scroll compressors, the company says. These units include the T-600, T-800 and T-1000. The valve feeds its position back to the electronic controller, and can be set to more than 700 positions to account for weather and load.
Enhancements also include a controller that allows data transfer to a USB flash drive, saving 180 hours a year for an average 500-vehicle fleet by eliminating time spent cabling a laptop to the reefer units. Another enhancement is the TracKing telematics system, which uses cellular, satellite and GPS technology to provide temperature, location and real-time alarm information.
