3.Where should the transport refrigeration unit’s condenser install?

Guchen Thermo can supply different types of units for different vehicle types. For example, the van refrigeration units mount the condenser on the roof top of vans; for most of truck refrigeration units, we can supply front mounted condenser units types, but as for some of trucks, which have no enough place to mount condenser in the front, so Guchen Thermo can supply TR-550 truck refrigeration units with condenser under mounted types.

4.Do I use my units for long-distance transportation or inner city transportation?

As for the long-distance transportation, most of our customers are worried about that their truck anchors on the half road if they use the traditional units (vehicle driven types) which will result in big loss. That is because the vehicle driven units’ cooling system relies on vehicles to generated power for refrigerating air.

But Guchen Thermo can supply diesel engine driven truck refrigeration units for help. The diesel engine driven truck refrigeration units has its own independent cooling system, so when truck engine stops, cooling system continues!
