Clean cold provider Dearman and industrial gas supplier Air Products have unveiled a new refueler to complement the groundbreaking Dearman transport refrigeration unit (TRU).
The Dearman TRU is powered by liquid nitrogen and seeks to displace incumbent diesel TRUs. The refueler can be quickly installed at distribution depots planning to take up Dearman TRUs—it takes just a day to get up and running. Hassle-free set-up is a key selling point of the Dearman system.
The new liquid nitrogen refueler works like a diesel pump, meaning drivers do not need to learn unfamiliar practices. Users just connect the nozzle, press a button and the dispenser does the rest, stopping automatically when the Dearman TRU tank is full. A full refuels takes less than 10 minutes.
Dearman’s TRU has already been deployed in the fleets of Sainsbury’s, Unilever and Marks & Spencer.
“We’re delighted to unveil the new Dearman liquid nitrogen refueler, developed with our partners at Air Products,” said Chris Owen, Dearman’s head of cryogenics. “It’s very user-friendly for fleet operators, and it certainly reduces any anxieties there may be about switching to new technologies. Above all, it’s completely safe for the operator. The Dearman TRU is a proven alternative to diesel TRUs. An easy-to-use fast refueler makes it easy to integrate with existing fleets.”
Dearman’s cutting-edge technology harnesses liquid nitrogen to deliver zero-emission power and cooling. The company is developing a portfolio of proprietary technologies, products and services that deliver reductions in fuel usage and emissions, at low cost.
The first application of Dearman technology is a zero-emission transport refrigeration system, an alternative to traditional diesel units. It has the capacity to have an impact on air quality and CO2 emissions.
The Dearman technology is the basis for a suite of zero-emission power and cooling solutions being developed by the company, which have applications in the transportation industry.
