Utility Trailer Manufacturing Co. is offering a new prep package for trailers equipped with hybrid refrigeration units. Based on the company's 3000R refrigerated trailer, the package provides an improved interface between the trailer and the hybrid reefer system to enhance its reliability, performance and life cycle.
“The interface between the trailer and refrigeration system has an impact in the overall performance and reliability, especially in demanding applications like multi-temperature, where heavy forklift traffic, multiple door openings and movable bulkheads make them more prone to damage and wear,” Craig Bennett, senior vp-sales & marketing, points out.
Features incorporated specifically for hybrid multi-temperature applications include a flush, heavy-duty, divided aluminum trough that houses refrigeration lines and electrical cables in separate compartments; a full-length, grounded copper channel surrounding the high voltage cable, and a 1/4-in. thick trough cover to better protect the high-voltage cable from damage from forktruck masts and shoring bars.
