Schmitz Cargobull has unveiled its flagship multi-temperature S.KO Cool Executive trailer at the Temperature Controlled Storage & Distribution (TCS&D) Show.
The company says the multi-temp refrigeration unit controls up to three compartments within a single trailer, providing pharmaceutical-grade monitoring and cooling.
It follows the 2014 launch of the single-temperature model, which has been shortlisted for the TCS&D Award for Refrigerated Trailer of the Year 2015.
Paul Avery, Schmitz Cargobull UK Managing Director, says, “The S.KO Cool Executive is the very latest in reefer technology and we’re delighted to bring the fridge of the future to the market. We’re now truly a one-stop shop for fleets looking for the latest in temperature controlled technology and trailers.”
The S.KO Cool Executive incorporates Schmitz Cargobull’s roof evaporator with an ultra-compact design for maximum interior load capacity. The company’s engineers have reduced the number of evaporator ribs, increasing the spacing and reducing water entrapment, meaning a claimed 50 per cent fewer defrosting cycles. The evaporator operates under continuous speed control to ensure the correct temperature is maintained within narrow margins, regardless of load size, and with much smaller deviation than that associated with stop-start systems.
