Thermo King Introduces New All-Electric, Zero-Emission B-100 30 Refrigeration Unit for Small Trucks and Vans
The new B-100 30 unit features an added electric heating option and provides top performance to the “last mile” delivery applications.
Brussels, March 20, 2017 – Thermo King, a manufacturer of transport temperature control solutions for a variety of mobile applications and a brand of Ingersoll Rand, enhances its
B-Series of efficient and environmentally friendly units for small delivery trucks and vans with the introduction of B-100 30. The new non-diesel, vehicle-powered refrigeration unit adds an electric heating option within the same compact dimensions and the same high performance typical for the entire range.
“The new B-100 30 and the entire all-electric B-Series units are a perfect fit for customers looking for high performance refrigeration units for their “last mile” applications such as home deliveries or the transport of pharmaceutical products,” said Eneko Fernandez, product management leader at Thermo King. “Having no diesel engine, the units gives transporters the flexibility of inner-city, low-emission zones operations and contributes to the low total cost of ownership.”
The B-Series range of zero-emission electric units are powered directly from the vehicle battery. They are compatible with vehicles equipped with original air-conditioning system requiring no drive kit or vehicle modification while the thin ceiling mounted evaporator contributes to increased payload space. The new B-100 30 unit adds electric heating option to the current range providing constant electrical cooling and heating capacities. Heating capacity is independent from vehicle engine and ambient temperature.
