Thermo King, represented in Ireland by Ballinlough Refrigeration, has introduced the latest, ultra-quiet addition to its Advancer A-Series trailer refrigeration systems – the A-500 Whisper Pro.
The new model is compliant with the most stringent noise regulations including PIEK, and allows for inner-city deliveries at any time of day and night, according to Thermo King.
Thermo King says its A-Series units are up to 30 per cent more fuel-efficient and offer up to 40 per cent quicker pull down than the market average.
The A-500 Whisper Pro offers the same high performance with sound level below the PIEK enforced 60 dB (A) standard.
The A-500 Whisper Pro uses geo-fencing to automatically switch into low-noise mode when entering a pre-defined zone.
This allows the transporters to operate unrestricted day and night schedules with the peace of mind that the unit complies with the regulations in the given area.
“Studies show that operating outside rush hour can result in 14 per cent faster distribution routes,” says Colm O’Grady, product manager trailer at Thermo King.
“With the A-500 Whisper Pro, dispatchers can plan a more efficient night route, to avoid rush hour, traffic jams and save precious time. Our new Advancer unit offers them more flexible operations and more possibilities to deliver their freight.”
Thermo King Advancer A-Series include complete transparency of fuel levels and fuel consumption. Customers can easily access the fuel consumption data of the unit – recorded, displayed, and made available remotely via telematics.
Fully variable airflow that can be regulated for each journey and cargo, and is independent from unit engine speed.
It offers lower maintenance costs and enhanced serviceability compared to the predecessor, thanks to sensors offering more insight into the engine, fuel, battery and the performance of other key components.
Meanwhile, future-ready power agnostic capabilities that can utilise diesel, axle generator, or shore power sources with ease. Two-years of full telematics connectivity is included in the purchase price.
