Minneapolis, MN October 21, 2014 — Environmental responsibility meets reliable technology, industry-leading fuel economy. Thermo King, a manufacturer of transport temperature control systems for a variety of mobile applications and a brand of Ingersoll Rand, enhanced its S-600M model of the Precedent™ S-Series line. The enhancement allows trucks to ship products with multi-temp capabilities-utilizing all trailer space while saving time and resources. This allows peace of mind for refrigerated trailer fleet operators and owner operators who want to remain compliant without sacrificing performance or efficiency.
Within this platform, the Precedent S-600M meets a variety of the trucking industry's refrigeration demands with its strong pull-down and two-speed evaporator operation for exceptional airflow while hauling perishable goods.
The enhanced multi-temp functionality the S-600M offers not only a high performance, greater-than-25 horsepower unit, but also broader availability to those who want to transport various items within a single trailer.
"As the new emissions regulations have come into effect we have made a leap forward with S-600," said Carl Breczinski, product manager for multi-temp trailers at Thermo King. "The S-600 allows fleets to transport products with different temp requirements while realizing substantial fuel savings and not having to worry about long-term emissions compliance."
Many companies, such as United Natural Foods Inc. (UNFI) with brands Albert's Organics and Tony's Fine Foods have chosen the Precedent trailer refrigeration unit platform.
"As environmental regulations pressured manufacturers to improve emission outputs, Thermo King did not cut corners or offer a Band-Aid fix. They did it right by launching the Precedent technology," said Jeff Wismans, national director of transportation, UNFI. "Simply put the Precedent S-600M burns less fuel and is less polluting with 90 percent reduction in particulate matter and 37 percent reduction in NOx."
As the industry's most sustainable trailer temperature control platform, Precedent delivers double-digit fuel savings, best-in-class performance and lower life cycle costs while providing regulatory compliance.
