Thermo King extends TriPac APU maintenance intervals

Updated Nov 20, 2013

TriPac_Evolution_leftside[1]The TriPac™ Evolution from Thermo King, a manufacturer of transport temperature control systems for a variety of mobile applications and a brand of Ingersoll Rand, now offers a 2,000-hour maintenance interval, which Thermo King says is the longest interval available in the industry for an auxiliary power unit (APU). The extended maintenance interval reduces the cost of ownership, aligns with tractor maintenance cycles and reduces environmental impact by lowering waste.

Thermo King offers the 2,000-maintenance interval, up from 1,500 hours, on all TriPac Evolution APUs. This includes any TriPac Evolutions purchased prior to the extended interval offering announcement.

“Thermo King extended the maintenance interval based on extensive research which indicates that 2,000 hours provides more than sufficient maintenance to keep the high performance TriPac Evolution APU running optimally,” said Paul Barbaro APU product manager for Thermo King. “The extended maintenance interval will help users meet key objectives including lower ownership costs and increased sustainability.”
