ThermoKing SmoothAir™Blower

Summary


An innovative new evaporator blower assembly from Thermo King enables Great Dane refrigerated trailer customers to measurably improve the fuel efficiency of single and multitemperature refrigeration units.

An innovative new evaporator blower assembly from Thermo King enables Great Dane refrigerated trailer customers to measurably improve the fuel efficiency of single and multitemperature refrigeration units.

Designed to enhance the manufacturer's Spectrum and SB-30 series units, the Smooth Air Blower, according to the company, reduces fuel usage by up to 7 percent and increases cooling capacity by up to 4 percent.

Thermo King's new Smooth Air Blower evaporator assembly saves fuel while increasing capacity because it requires 24 percent less power than previous generation blower assemblies. Features of the solution include:

• A more efficient blade design resulting in a more compact blower assembly

• Smoother inlet air, which means less friction and less energy consumed, resulting in increased capacity

• Improved pull down for reduced refrigeration unit run time

Available on new Thermo King SB-30 Series and SPECTRUM SB refrigeration units as well as an aftermarket upgrade for all SB, SB+ and SPECTRUM trailer.

"Fuel costs continue to be a major part of a fleet's budget. Thermo King continues to work to find innovative solutions like this to help Great Dane customers lower costs and increase efficiency," said Tom Kampf, product manager for Thermo King. "The Smooth Air Blower Assembly also helps our customers improve sustainability and overall efficiency."
