Thermo King Launches All-New T-Series Line of Truck Units

(Minneapolis - March 19, 2009) - Thermo King is proud to announce the all-new T-Series of temperature control units for straight trucks. With extensive testing completed, the new units will be launched at the Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville, which runs from March 19th through the 21st. The first of the new units will be available for order at your local Thermo King dealer beginning this May.

The T-Series was developed to provide customers with improved performance, new state-of-the-art features and a lower life cycle cost that makes a real difference on the bottom line.

Thermo King customers are the driving force behind the ongoing innovation that led to the T-Series, so it was only natural that their input played a key role in the development of these new units. Time and time again, customers asked for cost and fuel savings, improved reliability and performance, quieter, cleaner operation, and that they be easier to use and service. Thermo King listened, and the result is the T-Series.

Here are just a few examples of what's new and improved on the T-Series:

  • The new TSR-2 controller features durable LED technology and helps to ensure the correct parameters are set for every load, regardless of the language spoken by the driver
  • Customers can choose between the time-tested reciprocating compressor or the new scroll compressor, which boasts added technology for improved reliability, higher capacity and greater fuel efficiency
  • Stationary or the optional over-the-road Hybrid SmartPower™ electric operation means substantial fuel savings and zero emissions
  • Enhanced Whisper™ technology makes the T-Series the quietest Thermo King truck units ever
  • All units feature a sleek new design that allows for easy access for service

To ensure unmatched reliability, the T-Series was developed, engineered and tested at Thermo King's new testing facilities around the world using the latest and most grueling testing technologies. The T-Series is also backed by the strongest warranty the company has ever offered as well as the Thermo King dealer service network, with hundreds of locations across North America.

"Our customers' need - and requests - for additional cost and fuel savings; improved reliability and performance; quieter, cleaner operation; and simple functionality and serviceability are what drove the development and innovation of the T-Series," says Tim Ryan, truck product director for Thermo King.

Units available include the T-500R, T-600R, T-800R and T-1000R with reciprocating compressors and the T-600, T-800, T-1000, T-800 SPECTRUM multi-temperature and T-1000 SPECTRUM multi-temperature with new scroll compressor technology.
