Carrier Transicold has made its X2 series trailer refrigeration units seven decibels quieter by coupling the new V-Force fan with the Stealth 2 option, engineered with vortex-suppression tips that minimize spinning pockets of re-circulating air that result in inefficiency and noise, the company said.

Now a standard feature on all X2 series units, the V-Force fan delivers 8% more airflow to the radiator and condenser than a conventional condenser fan, Carrier Transicold said, adding it also reduces the power needed to operate the compressor for both better fuel economy and longer compressor life.

In addition, the Stealth 2 noise abatement option adds a tuned intake system to the diesel engine for improved noise suppression and sound quality, achieving a 30-decibel sound reduction for certain frequencies, the company said.

“The tuned intake system targets low-frequency rumbling noises that travel longer distances,” said Dave Kiefer, product manger – trailer products. “These are wavelengths that cause concerns with neighbors in residential areas near distribution centers or when drivers make urban deliveries.”
