2014-11-12

When considering a purchase of a truck refrigerated unit, also called a refrigerated truck unit or transport refrigerating unit , here are questions that the commercial truck dealer, leasing company or finance company will need to know when ordering from Guchen Industry.

 

 

1 Q: WHAT IS THE PRIMARY PRODUCT I WILL BE TRANSPORTING IN MY REFRIGERATED TRUCK?

 

 

A: What you are transporting in your refrigerated truck and the product’s temperature requirement will determine many of the key specifications, including how much insulation is needed. Transporting dairy products in your refrigerated truck requires different specifications than transporting fresh seafood. 

 

 

2Q:  HOW MUCH PRODUCT WEIGHT AND CUBIC FEET WILL I BE HAULING IN MY REFRIGERATED TRUCK?

 

 

A Guchen Industry truck refrigerated unit is the integral link your transportation “cold chain”. Refrigerated trucks usually carry your products the last miles before they are delivered. Maintaining the correct temperature in your refrigerated truck is critical, and is a function of the type of refrigeration system you use and the amount of insulation used in the walls, floor, and roof. 

 

 

3Q:  WILL YOU NEED THE REFRIGERATION UNIT OPERATING WHEN THE REFRIGERATED TRUCK ENGINE IS NOT RUNNING?

 

 

A The type of refrigeration unit you need for your refrigerated truck is determined by several key operational factors. Different choices and styles of refrigeration units are available depending on your specific needs. Supreme works with the two leading providers of refrigeration units, Thermo King and Carrier, and can help you determine the right refrigeration unit for your refrigerated truck based on your product, product packaging, temperature you need to maintain, door type, and insulation thickness. 

 

 

4Q: WILL I NEED ELECTRIC STANDBY TO KEEP MY PRODUCT'S TEMPERATURE CONSISTENT OVERNIGHT INSIDE THE REFRIGERATED TRUCK?

 

 

A Do you remove your product from your refrigerated truck every night or do you need to keep the product inside the truck? Electric standby lets you connect the refrigeration unit to an outlet for power during stopovers and overnight.
