Advantages of Carrier Transicold’s new Vector 8500 single-temperature hybrid trailer refrigeration unit include less weight, better capacity and improved fuel efficiency, according to the company. With the Vector 8500, Carrier is also introducing a fully hermetic electric scroll compressor, used in refrigerated marine container systems, that has 70 percent fewer moving parts and is 200 lbs lighter than a traditional reciprocating compressor. The Carrier Transicold Vector 8500 incorporates the manufacturer’s ecoFORWARD technologies. Compared to the unit it succeeds, the new Vector 8500: • Weighs 210 lbs less, a 10 percent weight savings; • Provides up to 4% higher cooling capacity – 60,000 BTU at 35 degrees F and 24,000 BTU at -20 degrees F; • Consumes up to 26% less fuel over a full range of operating conditions; and • Reduces engine runtime by up to 14%. In start/stop mode, according to Carrier, the greater capacity and higher efficiency also help the Vector 8500 achieve setpoint faster, enabling the engine to shut off sooner, ultimately reducing engine run hours and runtime-based maintenance expenses. The Vector 8500 unit’s engine is certified for the 2013 EPA Tier 4 standard for engines less than 25 HP. For fleets operating in California beyond seven years, the Vector platform’s standard electric standby capability provides an in-use compliance option.
