Carrier Transicold says its Supra 950MT multitemperature truck refrigeration unit delivers the high-capacity performance found in a system for straight trucks, plus better serviceability, improved reliability, lower sound output and improved appearance compared to its predecessor, the Genesis R90.

The company says the Supra 950MT system has a cooling capacity of 20,500 Btu/h at a setpoint of 0 to 100 degrees Fahrenheit ambient conditions. As a split system, it uses separate SlimLine evaporators for each of two cooling compartments within the cargo area; without a host evaporator at the front, truck owners have greater flexibility configuring compartments, Carrier says.

Electrical systems were redesigned to be simpler, more efficient and more robust for improved reliability and serviceability, according to the company; heating functionality no longer requires a separate capacitor module, making the system easier to install.

The unit features a dual-purpose standby motor; rather than having separate components, the motor also is designed to work as an induction generator, providing power to run heaters and fans. According to Carrier, standby capability allows the unit to be plugged into a power supply when stationary, eliminating the need to consume diesel fuel during loading and unloading.

The company says the Supra 950MT unit also includes an improved belt tensioning system, an extended oil drain fitting and other features for ease of service. As with the other units in the Supra series, the unit’s housing has a more streamlined appearance while also offering better acoustics, viewing ports for checking fluid levels without opening doors on the unit, and grab bars on both sides that provide convenient grips for service technicians.
