Utilimaster Corporation, a subsidiary of Spartan Motors Inc (Nasdaq: SPAR), has unveiled refrigerated and freezer configurations for its truck bodies. Utilimaster can upfit nearly any van or truck by installing an insulated liner that is completely seamless and can support forklift traffic, while integrating customized shelving and cargo containment.
Cooling is provided by an over-the-road refrigeration system with an engine-mounted compressor, a skirt-mounted condenser, and dual 10-inch fan evaporators. Units are also available in self-contained or cold plate configurations. Fuel for self-contained units is supplied by the vehicle’s diesel tank or an auxiliary fuel tank. Cold plate units contain no mechanical parts, so there is little chance of spoiled cargo as a result of blower failure.
The FDA-approved polyurea liner is safe for food contact. It provides a seamless coating over the interior of the truck, preventing food and juices from being trapped within the seams. Polyurea-lined trucks can be cleaned by hosing down the body, and no moisture penetrates the coating. The temperature integrity of even demanding cargo is ensured with this insulation. Injected polyurethane provides seamless interiors in all compartments. Polyurea is a fast-setting, rapid-gelling material used to create durable interiors.
