Supra 950: Big on cooling, small on noise

In its own quiet way, the Supra 950 truck refrigeration unit boasts the highest output of any truck unit made by Carrier Transicold. The new diesel-powered unit completes a two-year transformation of Carrier's single-temperature truck refrigeration line, which also includes the Supra 550, 650, 750, and 850.

David Kiefer, Carrier Transicold's product manager-Truck Products, said, “At 100° F ambient with its setpoint at 35° F, the Supra 950's cooling capacity is a huge 32,000 Btus.”

Like others in the series, the Supra 950 was acoustically engineered to significantly reduce sound output. A new, all-composite bottom panel seals against the housing, helping to buffer and redirect engine noise.

The Supra 950 unit uses a 1.1-liter CT3-69 TriVortex diesel engine and a six-cylinder compressor. Engine and compressor deliver high-capacity refrigeration while running at relatively low speeds, reducing wear and tear on the mechanical system and conserving fuel. The Supra 950 unit can be optionally equipped with an electric standby motor that helps reduce noise and eliminate exhaust emissions at the loading dock.

All Supra units are controlled by the Cab Command microprocessor with a driver-friendly in-cab digital readout.
