Nov 1, 2011 12:00 PM
Responding to requests for more solutions to help reduce fuel expense, lower operating costs, and simplify driver involvement with refrigeration units, Thermo King announced the new SB-30 series refrigeration units, including:
An enhanced fuel filtration system that is expected to save the average 500-vehicle fleet $100,000 in annual fuel-related maintenance expenses.
A new SR-3 controller that allows data transfer directly from the trailer via a built-in USB flash drive port, saving the average fleet as much as 180 hours of in-service time versus traditional data transfer.
A new ultrasonic fuel sensor for more accurate fuel readings, reducing out-of-fuel shutdowns and decreasing load loss claims.
SB-30 series enhancements in June 2011 will include:
A new evaporator blower assembly expected to lower fuel costs up to 7% while reducing required run time.
Integrated wireless technology that provides options for users to track and control their refrigerated fleets via Thermo King or third-party telematics.
