Carrier Transicold Offers New Reefer Unit for Light Commercial Vehicles

Carrier Transicold is offering a new alternator-driven electric refrigeration unit for light commercial vehicles (LCVs) in North America.

The Neos 100S model uses the vehicle's alternator to electronically power the system, enabling constant cooling or heating capacity for fresh and frozen cargoes regardless of engine speed. The units have been in operation in Europe for more than six years. According to Carrier Transicold, the device eliminates the need to run lengthy refrigerant lines between the LCV's engine and condenser. The feature thereby decreases the number of fittings by 80 percent, cutting down on the amount of refrigerant needs and the potential for refrigerant leaks, the company said. The main condenser assembly can be nose-mounted to the front of a truck box, or mounted to the roof of a delivery van.
