Johnson Refrigerated Truck Bodies announced their latest all-electric truck refrigeration solution –
ElectriMax. The new solution provides outstanding flexibility and operational savings for the refrigerated transport industry. ElectriMax does not have an integral combustion engine, therefore, it is exempt from transport refrigeration unit diesel emission regulations in California.
ElectriMax demonstrates flexibility by serving a vast array of delivery needs – from single temperature to multiple temperature bodies with compartments for medium, frozen and dry goods to versa-temp applications that transport frozen one day and fresh the next. Furthermore, ElectriMax operates with electricity instead of diesel fuel, which saves companies as much as 1,400 gallons a truck per year in diesel fuel. Plus its simple design increases savings by significantly lowering maintenance costs and downtime.
The Johnson fiberglass composite truck body equipped with ElectriMax, all-electric refrigeration, requires a truck chassis (standard or hybrid) with an automatic transmission and a PTO gear option. The mobile power source is integral to the operation of the truck and provides power for the refrigeration. The active-forced air cooling component provides high performance cooling capacity through an active evaporator, while recharging cold plates and the back-up power source en route. The result is pure performance, very little downtime and minimal recharge time.
ElectriMax refrigeration has received positive reviews across the country from leading food distributors of dairy, fluid milk, juice, cookie and ice cream products. The ElectriMax solution delivers unsurpassed evaporator airflow and temperature recovery after door openings, making it the ideal refrigeration solution for a host of refrigerated and frozen products including dairy, ice cream, produce, confection, bakery goods, frozen foods, ice, seafood and meat, pizza and other sensitive frozen foods.
“ElectriMax gives Johnson customers a new way to provide more value and cost savings to consumers, which [is] especially important in today’s economy,” said Mayo Rude, Johnson director of sales and marketing. “We are pleased to deliver a proven refrigeration solution that offers significant fleet operation savings, lower maintenance and the same flexibility as diesel-powered truck refrigeration.”
ElectriMax is an efficient and economical alternative, saving companies thousands of dollars annually in refrigeration operation costs.
“Johnson fiberglass truck bodies paired with ElectriMax refrigeration meet the needs of our customers by reducing their overall fuel consumption and carbon footprint,” said Ron Ricci, Johnson president. “We’re proud of our innovative achievements. We’ll continue to develop reliable, light-weight composite body designs and clean and green refrigeration solutions to pursue value-added and environmentally friendly solutions for our customers.”
