Improved and intuitive digital display
As one of the most user-friendly and intuitive in-cab controllers on the market today, the new Tripac colour digital display offers tactile push buttons and plain language readouts. With large cabin temperature readings, function icons, and toggling menus, the digital HMI provides drivers with greater control over their comfort and APU operations.
Emission Reduction Technology and Compliance
The new TriPac APU comes equipped with a passive after-treatment device (ATD) that combines engine soot (or carbon) with oxygen to create carbon dioxide that passes through the filter. The 3rdGEN APU is now compliant for California Air Resource Board (CARB) regulations, and is also EPA Tier 4 compliant for new original equipment manufacturer (OEM) or aftermarket installations.
Enhanced APU performance and quality
Standard warranty for major components is now doubled to four years and bumper-to-bumper coverage has been extended to two years
*See warranty documentation for full details.
Total cost of ownership has been reduced by an estimated 25% compared to the second-generation model.
Service friendly components
Peripheral hardware like wire harnesses, connectors, fusing, and routing have been streamlined to improve serviceability and reliability.
Why are auxiliary power units environmentally and cost friendly?
Pump Less Gas. Save More Cash.
The TriPac APU uses about 75% less fuel per hour than running the tractor engine. This equates to a fuel savings of around 9,500 litres annually or 38,000 litres during the average tractor ownership period.
*Based on actual customer experiences. Individual results may vary.
Resell High. Resell Fast.
Shifting from vehicle engine hours to a TriPac APU will help to retain more of the fleet’s resale value. Adding a TriPac APU helps to speed up the sale and for a higher price whether you’re selling privately, at an auction, or to a dealer.
Save your engine for the road, not the truck stop.
Increase uptime and pay less for maintenance by saving engine run time for the road. The Thermo King TriPac APU reduces unneeded engine idling, preserving engine wear and reducing the downtime associated with maintenance.
ThermoLite® Solar Panels
By producing clean energy, ThermoLite solar panels can reduce the runtime of TriPac engines by up to 30%. (as compared to the 2nd generation model). This means that you spend less on fuel, APU wear, and maintenance.
Strengthening Your Green Efforts
Installing a TriPac APU is the fastest and most cost-effective way to reduce emissions and your carbon footprint. Rest-stop idling accounts for almost 75% of fuel consumption which can now be easily eliminated. Combing your Tripac APU with ThermoLite solar panels can help to further reduce the need for fossil fuels and the resulting emissions. Finally, with the availability of TracKing telematics, you can easily calculate and share your cab climate data with your customers, drivers, and other communities.
