#Why Know About R-452A?

Posted on June 30, 2022

Quick Facts on R452A:
• Class A refrigerant, non-flammable
• No compromise on end user safety
• No compromise on equipment lifetime
• No compromise on cargo load safety

R452A Performance Results
There are no changes to the refrigerant oil and system internal components between units operating on R404A and units operating on R452A. Operating pressures, and efficiency are similar. TXV super heat setting is different between R404 and R452A. TXV replacement is required if a unit is converted from R404A to R452A.
Refrigerant recovery and system evacuation and re‐charge must be done according to the standard Thermo King recommended procedures. Like any other refrigerant R452A cannot be mixed with R404A or other refrigerant, therefore, to avoid cross contamination of recovered refrigerant it is vital that recovery systems including recovery pump and gauge manifolds and related hoses are purged completely prior to being used on any other refrigerant type.

#Why Thermo King beats EVERYBODY for reefer Telematics

Posted on January 17, 2022

ConnectedSuite is a complete bundle of Thermo King technology designed to deliver information that matters to you.

Refrigeration unit data is invaluable to customer operations – any gap in that flow of data can cause issues. If your fleet has TracKing® hardware that connects to the 3G network, you need to know that this network is scheduled to shutdown in the US on February 22, 2022.

Thermo King is here to assist you with your upgrade from 3G to 4G telematics hardware. We’ve developed a program designed to make the transition as easy as possible so you don’t lose the valuable data connections you depend on.
