Hubbard Products Press Release:
Leading UK fridge van converters The Cold Consortium Ltd., are offering their customers the ultimate in Transport Refrigeration – Hubbard Products’ Zer0° ‘Invisible Refrigeration’ – for all-round performance with Zero external intrusion to the vehicle. A demonstrator panel van has been completed in conjunction with Hubbard Products and Vauxhall illustrating how tomorrow’s refrigerated vans will change the face of food logistics.
Hubbard Products’ Zer0° range covers all customers’ needs from micro-vans through small, medium and large panel van to larger box body vehicles and includes two ‘invisible’ models the Z008 and Z009 – both available to chill (0°C) or freeze (-20°C) – in standby, non standby and, dual evaporator specifications. The ‘Invisible’ format indicates the exterior dimensions and aerodynamics of the vehicle remain unchanged from the original manufacturers’ specification. This ensures that the vehicle retains its overall economy, and the bodywork is undamaged by the installation of a traditional external condenser unit. The low-line evaporator units are fixed to the internal insulation conversion rather than to the vehicle body.
Ian Gardner, Managing Director of The Cold Consortium explains, “This new approach to vehicle refrigeration offers our customers considerable peace of mind as well as delivering chilling performance to match the needs of today’s food logistics chain the units also have a two-year warranty as standard. With no change to the vehicles overall dimensions, and no disruptive installation, the value and the aerodynamic performance of the vehicle is maintained and ensures its economy, and range (mpg) is preserved. The system is simple to maintain with the compressor and condenser units mounted within the engine compartment and under the chassis, making them easy to access for routine maintenance. In the twenty-three years The Cold Consortium has been successfully converting vehicles this is a leap forward in customer convenience, and we are pleased to be pioneering the development of new and practical refrigeration solutions. Working with the major commercial vehicle manufacturers, Ford, Iveco, Vauxhall, Renault, VW, Mercedes and FIAT we can now offer ‘invisible’ refrigeration to suit all needs.”
Available in two specifications R134a (chill to 0°C) and R452a (Freeze to -20°C), Hubbard SFZ Invisible units offer an elegant and powerful solution to modern logistical needs within the chilled and frozen sector.
