Closed Loop Cooling Now Available for Thermo King's TriPac™ APU System

(Minneapolis - September 2, 2009) - Thermo King announces the addition of Closed Loop Cooling to the growing list of available options for the market-leading TriPac™ Hybrid Auxiliary Idle Reduction and Temperature Control System (APU). The Closed Loop Cooling option, which was added in response to customer demand, delivers some key benefits:

  • Reduced Installation Complexity
  • Emergency Tractor Alternator Backup
  • TriPac Runs Independently of Tractor Cooling System

For drivers who frequently operate in warm climates or simply prefer that the TriPac system not tie into the tractor engine coolant, Closed Loop Cooling is the ideal option. The TriPac system will run independently of the tractor engine coolant and still provide the battery charging and cab comfort options drivers demand. Closed Loop Cooling also provides emergency tractor alternator backup, which means the TriPac system can supply voltage for temporary tractor operation in case of tractor charging system failure. Closed Loop Cooling can be ordered with the TriPac system or as an aftermarket option from Thermo King dealers.

"Closed Loop Cooling is a direct result of listening to our customers and developing innovative solutions that meet their needs," says Dwayne Cowan, APU product manager for Thermo King. "This option will be a nice feature for customers who frequently run where the average low temperature is above 32 degrees, and it adds to the breadth of options available for the market-leading TriPac system."
