Which Truck Refrigeration Solution is Right for you?

Finding the right truck refrigeration solution can be difficult if you are not sure which reefer will provide you with the most benefits. Direct drive refrigeration units are not only easier to use, they are environmentally friendly and more cost effective than the alternatives. ATC reefers are excellent for delivering products that may include fresh produce, flowers, dairy products, frozen food, pharmaceuticals and other temperature sensitive freight.

Choosing the most practical refrigeration solution depends on the size of the vehicle and what it will be transporting.The right truck refrigeration solution can be installed on your van, truck, or trailer using either of the two most common methods, nose mounted or roof mounted condensers. Both systems have the customary in-box evaporators for easy maintenance access. All ATC systems feature digital temperature controls inside the cab area for monitoring and controlling temperatures during transport.

There are several factors that come into play when considering which unit will meet your needs. Once the following factors are taken into account, choosing the most practical refrigeration solution can be determined.

  • The size of the Van, Truck or Trailer
  • The amount of insulation your vehicle has,
  • The required temperature of products during transport,
  • The average temperature outside, and
  • The number of door openings in a delivery day.
