Carrier Transicold introduces hybrid Vector 8600MT Multi-Temperature System with new smart remote evaporators

The Vector 8600MT is the first commercially available multi-temperature trailer refrigeration unit that meets the 2013 EPA Tier 4 standard.

As with other 2013 Carrier Transicold truck and trailer refrigeration units, the Vector 8600MT unit incorporates Carrier Transicold’s performance-boosting ecoFORWARD™ technologies. Compared to the unit it succeeds, the new Vector 8600MT unit provides up to 4 percent higher cooling capacity at 60,000 Btu at 35 degrees Fahrenheit (1.6 degrees Celsius) and 24,000 Btu at -20 degrees Fahrenheit ( 29 degrees Celsius), while using up to 20 percent less engine power. 

The Vector 8600MT unit’s engine is certified for “evergreen” compliance with the 2013 EPA Tier 4 standard for engines less than 25 horsepower. For fleets operating in California beyond seven years, the Vector platform’s standard electric standby capability provides an in-use compliance option for the California Air Resources Board (CARB). Carrier Transicold is also developing an optional engine emissions system that further reduces engine emissions and provides a future CARB in-use compliance verified diesel emissions control strategy (VDECS).
