Carrier Updates Vector 1350 Trailer Refrigeration Unit
Warrington, England – Carrier Transicold’s Vector™ 1350 trailer refrigeration unit uses new software to increase system power and lower noise levels. Carrier Transicold, which operates in the UK as Carrier Transicold UK, helps improve global transport and shipping temperature control with a complete line of equipment for refrigerated trucks, trailers and containers, and is a part of UTC Building & Industrial Systems, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).
Now with 13,100 Watts of refrigeration capacity, the updated Vector 1350 provides even more power for the transportation of perishable goods. Achieving a lower noise level of just 69 decibels, the Vector 1350 unit provides added comfort for drivers and neighbours during deliveries. At the same time, the Vector 1350 unit’s light weight of approximately 643 kilograms enables hauliers to carry larger payloads, offering greater reliability as a result of the new software.
As the CEN Partial Load Test Norm proved, the 1.1-litre engine reduces fuel consumption by up to 30 per cent compared to the previous unit. The engine drives both a compressor and a generator to power the ventilation system. Three electric fans significantly improve system reliability. By using a microchannel condenser coil, the Vector 1350 unit requires about 27 per cent less refrigerant than its predecessor.
The Vector 1350 unit offers a new, user-friendly control interface. Key features include dedicated buttons and universal symbols that are easy for operators to understand, regardless of language. They help to avoid potential costly mistakes when choosing the proper temperature settings inside the trailer.
