IIR member news: Carrier Transicold engineless system for refrigerated trucks
2017/09/13
11/09/2017
IIR corporate member Carrier Transicold provides an environmentally friendly system that avoids the use of a second engine to power the refrigeration compressor of reefer units. The system is driven by a generator called Eco-Drive GenSet, which is powered by a hydraulic variable displacement pump connected to the truck’s engine by a power take-off (PTO).
 
Thanks to the PTO, as soon as the truck engine runs, the hydraulic pump turns on. The mechanical energy of the engine is transformed into a hydraulic flow and then into mechanical energy again, to power the Eco-Drive GenSet. The Eco-Drive is composed of a hydraulic engine coupled to a generator. It is installed on the vehicle chassis.
 
The hydraulic variable displacement pump ensures a constant flow, whatever the engine speed, providing constant power to the Eco-Drive, which provides a continual cooling capacity of up to 18,000 W to the reefer unit. The refrigerating circuits are fed by fully hermetic scroll compressors. The system can also be used on trailer trucks, in addition to a classical system where a second engine ensures refrigeration when the truck is parked or when the trailer is unhitched.
