Refrigeration units for tractor and trailer
Tractor and trailers are often used to transport large quantities of refrigerated goods over long distances. Reliable and efficient refrigeration units keep goods at the right temperature through to the point of unloading.
A tractor and trailer vehicle is adapted for pulling heavy loads over long distances. In refrigeration transport, goods are kept chilled by different types of refrigeration units. Diesel-powered units have been a common solution, but significant cost and environmental savings can be made for operators who choose a hydraulic refrigeration unit.
This is especially true if you choose a hydraulic generator that converts existing diesel refrigeration units to electric power. For a tractor and trailer, this can give a saving of more than £22,000 after six years, as the demand for diesel to operate the refrigeration unit disappears. In addition, the conversion to electric/hydraulic power means that carbon dioxide emissions drop by almost 15 tons per year and particle emissions are reduced from 21 tons to 6 tons per year.
