Carrier Transicold releases ComfortPro electric APU

Carrier Transicold has introduced the new ComfortPro electric auxiliary power unit (APU).

According to Carrier Transicold, the new APU provides quiet, emissions-free truck cab cooling while delivering one of the longest run-times in a battery-powered APU. The company also touts reduced service with an APU, with few moving parts and no engine-related maintenance.

The ComfortPro electric APU is powered by four Group 31 AGM (absorbent glass mat) batteries that are charged by the truck’s alternator. The ComfortPro APU provides 7,500 BTU/hr. of air conditioning for up to 11 hours.

“Since it is an engineless system, the ComfortPro electric APU provides air conditioning comfort without fuel consumption, idling noise and related emissions,” said Ryan Rubly, product manager for alternative power with Carrier Transicold. “The ComfortPro electric APU also uniquely locates the refrigerant compressor outside the truck cab, which contributes to extremely quiet operation.”
