Hubbard Products, UK-based creator of European Refrigeration Systems is using the Commercial Vehicle Show for the launch of its new range of Diesel over-cab and under-mount refrigeration units.
In what the company says is a first for the UK transport refrigeration market, the brand-new range of Mono-block Diesel powered Un0 over-cab/under mounted systems incorporate a revolutionary (inline drive train) system that removes the need for drive belts. In conjunction with Kinetic Logic from the controller this will increase service intervals and overall efficiency while giving a reduced cost of ownership, says the company.
Presented in a stylish new design of ABS casing the Hubbard Un0 range will be available in four sizes for medium to large vehicles.
The four units, Un0 60, Un0 80, Un0 100 and Un0 120 will deliver significant benefits to refrigerated transport operators with low maintenance costs, improved fuel consumption, low noise levels and automatic temperature management through microprocessors. All the units are available with a range of options, including Multi-temperature for frozen and chilled deliveries, alternative voltages, heating systems with hot water and electrical heaters, 100A/H battery and separate fuel tanks.
Dougie Stoddart, Commercial Director for Hubbard Products says, These are the first Diesel monoblock units Hubbard have offered to the UK Transport Sector. Everybody will know that Hubbard is involved in the development of the next generation of zero emission transport refrigeration systems with the Dearman liquid nitrogen powered technology. However, it is important to remember that diesel power will remain a tried and trusted drive source for many operators. Improving the efficiency of diesel units remains a key target for Hubbard, and the Un0 units are seen as a key stepping stone to acknowledging the importance of improving air quality by reducing or completely removing NOx emissions from the transport refrigeration cycle. Our aim is to make transport refrigeration as environmentally friendly as possible, as quickly as possible. This is another step in that process.
To demonstrate the synergy between the new range of Un0 units and the on-going development of the Dearman powered liquid nitrogen, Hubbard and Dearman will be showing an example of the ground-breaking engine on stand 3E110 situated in the Cool Pavilion at the CV Show 201, staged at the NEC Birmingham between April 26-28.
