Carrier Transicold cooling units for GSM Transport dairy contract

Scottish firm GSM Transport has taken delivery of two trailers fitted with Carrier Transicold Vector refrigeration systems for a milk delivery contract.

The two mono-temperature Vector 1550 units are mounted to 13.6-metre Gray & Adams tri-axle reefers, and will run out of a Glasgow depot on double shifts, four days a week, delivering chilled milk to customers across Scotland and northern England.

The pair join a fleet of five tractor units and six trailers at GSM Transport, all of which operate with Carrier Transicold temperature controlled systems.

“The beauty of the Vector range means you can pick the most efficient model for the application,” said Jim Morrison, owner, GSM Transport.

“We’ve got more powerful Vector 1950 MT systems on our multi-temperature contracts, but for dairy operations the Vector 1550 units are ideal. I just like the way Carrier Transicold works; I’ve always had good service.” 

The Vector 1550 unit is ideally suited for GSM Transport’s milk delivery contract, combining a cooling capacity of up to 14,995 watts with optimised fuel efficiency.

This is achieved by using a patented combination of a hermetic compressor with an economiser, enabling the use of a highly efficient 1.5 litre diesel engine.

The economiser supplies up to a 40 per cent increase in refrigeration capacity during pulldown, before automatically reducing during the temperature regulation phase to save fuel – all while maintaining exceptional cold chain performance.
