Carrier Transicold’s Vector 8500 single-temperature hybrid trailer refrigeration unit offers reduced weight, improved fuel economy and greater refrigeration capacity. It features the first fully hermetic electric scroll compressor used in a North American trailer refrigeration unit. The compressor has 70 percent fewer moving parts and is 200 pounds lighter than a traditional reciprocating compressor. The Vector platform’s signature E-Drive all-electric refrigeration technology means refrigeration and heating operations are 100 percent electric, powered over the road by an onboard generator driven by the unit’s diesel engine. Electric standby capability is built-in, allowing haulers to tap into electric power supplies to run the system when parked, providing quiet, emissions-free refrigeration performance that can reduce operating costs by up to 70 percent compared to diesel operations, while conserving fuel for the highway.
