Thermo King Corporation has selected T/CCI Manufacturing/QUE Products of Decatur, Illinois and Ningbo, China to supply compressors for their TriPac Hybrid Auxiliary Idle Reduction and Temperature Management System (APU) as well as Thermo King’s Fresh and Frozen direct drive temperature controlled truck refrigeration units.
T/CCI Manufacturing, in partnership with their sister company QUE Products, have been developing and producing industry leading QP model swash plate compressors for several years.
“The quality and reputation of our new product lines has lead to our rapid growth and secured many new customers in both the OE and aftermarket markets. The addition of Thermo King to our growing list of partners is a testament to the quality of our products as well as our superior customer service,” T/CCI Vice President Richard Demirjian said. “We look forward to the new partnership.”
The TriPac APU will feature the QP15 (146cc) compressor for R134a refrigerant. The TriPac unit eliminates unnecessary truck idling, lowers fuel costs, while benefiting the environment. The quiet, hybrid system provides cab power to keep drivers comfortable without running the engine, and saves on maintenance costs as well.
Thermo King’s direct drive refrigeration units will feature the QP13 (131cc), QP15 (146cc), and QP16 (161cc) R134a compressors for Fresh applications; and similar low temp R404a compressors for Frozen applications.
