Thermo King Electronic Throttling Valve

Updated Aug 17, 2012

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.
