Carrier Transicold’s thin-profile intermodal TRU

Carrier Transicold’s Vector 1550 domestic intermodal refrigeration system features a thin profile, enabling greater capacity utilization within a standard 53-foot North American intermodal container. The unit reduces total weight and is built to allow a container to accommodate an extra row of pallets, resulting in cube loads similar to 53-foot over-the-road trailers. The company’s E-Drive technology uses a high-output generator direct-coupled to a diesel engine to power the all-electric refrigeration system. Using intelligent controls, the system is designed to turn individual components on and off automatically, running only what it needs precisely when needed, allowing components such as the compressor and fan to run fewer hours and last longer. The simplified, clean refrigeration architecture is engineered to eliminate many serviceable items such as vibrasorbers, clutches, shaft seals, alternators, drive belts and pulleys.
