The models shipping with the new, low global warming potential refrigerant (R452A) are the SLXe trailer units, the self-powered T-Series and UT models for rigid trucks, as well as the V-Series of vehicle-powered truck refrigeration systems.
In addition, Thermo King's V-Series (vehicle powered) will ship with R452A refrigerant which has half the global warming potential of the current refrigerant.
Thermo King's Karin de Bondt said:
“Every new truck and trailer unit will be high performance and feature R-452A and, in addition to new units, our customers can opt for this solution in existing systems from our trained and certified technicians who form the industry’s most extensive sales and service network.”
