Carrier Transicold says its single-temperature Niagara trailer refrigeration series, the first major evolution of its X-Series, is designed for improved sound quality and a more modern look, thanks to an optional chrome package.
The panel doors are made of DuraShell 2, which has triple the impact strength, double the UV light resistance, 50 percent better thermal stability and 20 percent better heat resistance, the company says. The twin-sheet panel construction has acoustic foam on the interior surfaces and integrated door seals to help contain sound. The units also feature improved access to mechanical parts, including hinged side doors that open all the way to the top, providing total access with the flip of a single latch on each side door.
Four models will succeed the current single-temperature units when the Niagara series goes into full production later this year: the Niagara 2500A, Niagara 2100A, Niagara 2100 and Niagara 1800, replacing the Ultima XTC, Ultra XTC, Ultra XT and Extra XT, respectively. The Niagara model numbers relate to capacity in BTUs at the deep-frozen setpoint.
