Carrier Transicold has introduced Deltek hybrid diesel electric technology to the refrigerated transport industry. Deltek technology is a radical departure from the conventional mechanical technology that has defined transport refrigeration systems for more than 50 years, according to the company. Through expanded use of electronics and maintenance-free electrical components, it offers a streamlined design that does away with most serviceable mechanical parts, such as belts and clutches, and greatly reduces the refrigerant charge compared to conventional systems.
The system relies on a high-performance aircraft-quality generator to provide all needed electrical power. The generator is driven by a diesel engine, creating the hybrid diesel-electric power train. An electric, sealed compressor drives the simplified refrigeration system. The compressor assures an extra tight refrigeration system because its electric motor is inside the compressor housing. No shaft seal is required. A distributed system of maintenance-free electric evaporator and condenser fans controls the flow of air. Carrier estimates Deltek technology can reduce lifecycle costs by as much as 30 percent.
