NOTES:
Thermo King systems are developed and tested in accordance with American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE). ASHRAE testing validates the entire system, ensuring performance in all climates vs. ratings determined via IMACA method, which may only test system components that are not reflective of the installed application. Leveraging the ASHRAE application philosophy, Thermo King units are designed to deliver the required cooling capacity across the entire engine RPM range. This results in increased passenger comfort, fast recovery and decreased engine load. AHSRAE results are based off the following conditions: Thermo King systems are developed and tested in accordance with American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE).
