New B-100 30 designed for high performance in ‘last mile’ delivery applications
Mobile temperature control solutions provider Thermo King has launched a new refrigeration unit for small trucks and vans that runs fully on electricity and has zero emissions.
The Ingersoll Rand Group company said the new B-100 30 non-diesel, vehicle-powered refrigeration unit also has an electric heating option within the same compact dimensions as others in its B-series refrigeration systems.
“The new all-electric B-100 30 and the entire B-Series units are a perfect fit for customers looking for high performance refrigeration units for their ‘last mile’ applications, such as home deliveries or the transport of pharmaceutical products,” said Eneko Fernandez, product management leader at Thermo King. “Having no diesel engine, the units give transporters the flexibility of inner-city, low-emission zones operations and contributes to the low total cost of ownership.”
The new all-electric B-100 30 unit adds an electric heating option to the current range, providing constant electrical cooling and heating capacities. Heating capacity is independent from vehicle engine and ambient temperature.
The B-Series range of zero-emission electric units are powered directly from the vehicle battery. They are compatible with vehicles equipped with original air-conditioning systems, requiring no drive kit or vehicle modification, while the thin ceiling-mounted evaporator contributes to increased payload space, the manufacturer said.
