Unmatched reliability, efficiency and value. The Vector 8500. Simply first. Simply better.
Proven and refined over a decade, Carrier Transicold’s all-electric refrigeration technology means refrigeration and heating operations are 100 percent electric, powered over the road by an on-board generator driven by the unit’s diesel engine.
The latest generation Vector™ units utilize ecoFORWARD™ technologies to offer significantly reduced weight, improved fuel economy, and greater refrigeration capacity than our prior hybrid trailer refrigeration units.
Advanced Compressor Design
For improved performance, the latest Vector systems use a fully sealed electric scroll compressor with 70 percent fewer moving parts and weighing 200 pounds less than a traditional reciprocating compressor.
Reduced Maintenance Cost
The Vector system eliminates many maintenance items found in conventional mechanical refrigeration systems, such as alternators, drive belts, idlers, vibrasorbers, compressor shaft seals, and clutches.
The unit provides compliance with 2013 EPA Tier 4 emissions regulations, while also improving operational efficiencies and performance.
Vector units have the unique ability to turn components on when they’re needed, and off when they’re not.
Standard with Vector units, this feature cuts fuel consumption, engine noise and emissions, while boosting operational savings.
