Thermo King wheeling in quieter solutions

Thermo King will introduce several new product solutions at this year's International Motor Show (IAA) in Hanover, Germany, from 23-30 September. The new products will be the V700 MAX DSR for trucks and SLX Whisper for trailers.

The V700 MAX DSR is said to be lighter and quieter than most self-powered units and is powered by the vehicle's engine instead of a separate diesel motor. In addition, the unit contains an electric motor to provide stand-by power.

The new unit focuses on improved performance and functionality, and incorporates a microprocessor controller, which provides better accuracy and performance in temperature control.

Meanwhile, the SLX Whisper, based on the firm's SLX-300 platform, was developed to meet the most stringent PIEK noise regulations. To achieve the standard, products are acoustically measured and must function at under 60dB(A) in order to be deemed suitable for night-time deliveries.
