Thermo King announces that the V-500 Series of vehicle-powered refrigeration units for trucks is in production.

This unit features improved pull-down capacity (all the way to -20 degrees F), letting customers haul deep-frozen loads with reduced risk of product degradation, while the maximum capacity level makes it possible to function in ambient temperatures up to 122 degrees F.

Thermo King's exclusive TCC (Triple Cooling Capacity) feature offers three cooling capacities and fan speeds to automatically match cooling needs of varying intensity. With this flexibility, the V-500 has the capability to maintain deep-frozen loads under demanding conditions while conserving fuel and minimizing noise under less intense conditions.

The optional reciprocating road compressor offers a running life five times that of other compressors, and the TCC system reduces the working time of the condenser fans. Electrical components in the V-500 are protected from water and humidity inside a semi-hermetic box.

The V-500 is available in various configurations. Options include R-134a and R-404A versions, standby operation, heating, and a choice of road compressors.
