SO WHY DO YOU HAVE TO TAKE YOUR TRAILER REEFER IN?
Eliminates TRU exhaust emissions.
Reduces weight up to 1,500 lbs.
Improved reliability & durability.
No battery storage required.
No additional horsepower drag from any wheel mounted alternator.
No added parts for existing trailers to drive components.
No complicated electrical inverter system to malfunction.
Simple and easy to repair equipment for the Owner/Operator.
As dependable as your kitchen refrigerator because it is built the same way.
Electric Powered for Trailers
These "Green" units are electric powered. By using the on-board electric operation, you will be contributing to a considerable environmental savings in carbon emissions. The main tractor engine will emit much less carbon than a smaller industrial engine running at high speed. The standard unit is equipped with heating options for those that need to protect a product from freezing. This revolutionary unit can also be equipped with a "Smart Start" system to further save on energy.
Evaporator outlet at 0 F., the compressor capacity is 79,000 Btu's using only 9.2 kW. Evaporator outlet at-20 F., the compressor capacity is 53,000 Btu's using only 8.3 kW. The maximum required power from the tractor engine will be just 30 horsepower (normal operating load will be about 17HP). Under normal full load highway speeds, the tractor engine will consume about .20* (1/5 gal) gph more than if the reefer was not operating. At idle, the tractor engine will consume about .25* (1/4 gal) of a gallon per hour more, if the refrigeration unit is running. The result of the added horsepower load at idle increases the stack temperature which in turn reduces the emissions. Overall, the result is a savings of about 1 to 1.25 gallons per hour depending on operating conditions.
Here's a"real world" look at a company with 100 refrigerated trailers:
100 trailers x 20 gallons per day per trailer x $3/gallon= $6,000 per day
Now, take the money saved with an ElectraCold TRU and put it back in the profit column. That is a savings of over $1,320,000.00 per year (220 days). That is more than some companies that size have in net profits each year.

NOTICE: It has been brought to our attention that some people, who would prefer that this product not make it to the market place, have been "debunking" the idea by telling others that there would not be a fuel savings due to the fact that it "takes x amount of fuel for each horsepower" and that by taking it from the nose mounted diesel engine would only transfer it to the tractor engine. This is not true. What these people are referring to is direct engine to horsepower calculations. The electric truck transport refrigeration units are powered by a hydraulically driven 15 kW generator powered from the drive train of the tractor engine. This type of power is called "parasitic" horsepower and is not calculated the same as direct. Please read the CAT and DATA attachments below for further information.
As a side note to the above information, this method of powering refrigeration equipment is not something new. We have been suppling this type to the fishing industry for over 30 years.
Please email for further information. I request an email to avoid all the "business loan" spammers. A phone number will be furnished with my email response.
