Thermo King underlines global climate commitment with EcoWise portfolio

Ingersoll Rand has created the EcoWise portfolio of products for its climate and industrial refrigerant-bearing products that are designed to lower environmental impact with next generation, low global warming potential (GWP) refrigerants and high efficiency operation.

Ingersoll Rand has created the EcoWise portfolio of products for its climate and industrial refrigerant-bearing products that are designed to lower environmental impact with next generation, low global warming potential (GWP) refrigerants and high efficiency operation.

Already being delivered to customers across Europe, the SLXe trailer refrigeration units from Thermo King, a manufacturer of transport temperature control solutions for a variety of mobile applications and a brand of Ingersoll Rand, are among the first products to be part of the EcoWise portfolio.

Vice president, Thermo King Europe, Middle East and Africa, Dwight Gibson, said: “Environmentally and business cautious transporters demand high performance and look for pre-emptive compliance with the upcoming regulations. Thermo King meets this demand and our goal is to continue leading the technological and environmental innovation race with further expansion of the EcoWise product portfolio by offering truck transport solutions in Europe, the Middle East and Africa in 2015.”

Thermo King products in the EcoWise portfolio meet the transportation companies’ needs for solutions that reduce their environmental impact by lowering greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions while maintaining or improving performance, cooling capacity, pull-down and fuel efficiency.

The new SLXe trailer units are compatible with the next generation DuPont Opteon XP44 (R-452A) refrigerant, which has about 50 per cent less GWP than the current refrigerant. The new units further lower the environmental impact thanks to such innovative enhancements from Thermo King including: micro-channel condenser coils that allow for even lower refrigerant charge and minimise the risk of leakage;

low-noise operation with specially designed acoustic package that reduces the creation of sound energy and contains it at the source, allowing the unit to reach PIEK-certified noise levels of 60dB or less at a seven metre radius; and patented geofencing controllers to automatically switch into low-noise mode when entering a controlled zone.

The transport refrigeration solutions in the EcoWise portfolio build on the overall climate commitment made by Ingersoll Rand in September 2014. The commitment includes reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions related to its operations by approximately 35 per cent by 2020; reducing GHG emissions related to its products by 50 per cent by 2020; and investing $500m in product-related research and development over the next five years to fund the long-term reduction of GHG emissions.
