OPTIBELT BRINGS COOL TO THE STREETS

Always stay cool! Mobile cooling units provide frosty conditions in trucks and commercial vehicles. Of course that applies to milk and cheese, but also to medicines or medical samples which must always arrive fresh to their destination.

Chilled goods transport is a hot business. Tight, just-in-time logistics, uninterrupted cold chain for perishable goods in transit and strict environmental regulations leave little room for failure or technical problems. Therefore, the cooling units in modern trucks usually include multiple drive belts, for example, the optibelt TRUCK POWER KBX kraftbands, the optibelt TRUCK POWER MARATHON 2 M=S V-belt, and the optibelt TRUCK POWER RBK ribbed V-belt. They provide high reliability and low maintenance.

By the way: Whether a truck is moving or stationary plays no major role for cooling units. The cooling must continue to run at full speed even with prescribed stops at the service area. Therefore the performance of the drive belt in this case is not measured as usual as “Km performance”, but recorded in “hours of operation”. Unlike normal powertrains, the belt in the refrigeration unit must provide nonstop performance.
