Thermo King's new environment-friendly, cryogenic-powered SB-III CR temperature control system uses carbon dioxide for heating and cooling. This eliminates the need for ozone-depleting commercial refrigerants. The SB-III CR system has 98% fewer moving parts than conventional systems, reducing operational noise levels.

The unit is a high-capacity, one-piece, front-mounted, cryogen-powered cooling and heating unit designed for jumbo trailers. At the heart of the new system is Thermo King's patented vapor motor that drives the evaporator blower and brushless alternator. A propane-fired heater superheats the carbon dioxide for heating and defrosting.
