INDIA - In order to provide dedicated refrigeration transport solutions in cities, Carrier Transicold have started its new range of fresh-only truck refrigeration units under the CITIFRESH brand name.

The unit is designed to meet the growing demand in India for transportation of fruits, vegetables, dairy and confectionary products using longer refrigerated trucks.

The CITIFRESH unit is ideal for transporting chilled products on medium- to large- commercial vehicles with loading capacity of 16 to 55 cubic meters, the company said in a statement.

The CITIFRESH unit can handle a broad chilled temperature range of +4 degrees Celsius to +22 degrees celsius.

The unit operates in tandem with the truck engine and provides a high airflow of 2,200m3/hr, crucial for proper air circulation, the statement adds.

The company said that the unit has a stainless steel evaporator specially suited for demanding applications such as high ambient Indian conditions (up to 50 degrees Celsius), and is easy to install and maintain.

It delivers exceptional value by virtue of its low initial cost and lower maintenance and operational costs. A dashboard-mounted DIN controller also is easy to use, the company adds.
