Circle 339 on Reader Action Card or go to www.hdt.hotresponse.com Morgan Cold-Plate System M organ Corp. has partnered with Dole Refrigera- tion on a cold plate refrigeration system for trailers and truck bodies. The system's plates are pre-chilled and keep commodities at proper temperatures without use of engine-driven reefer units or idling the truck's main engine while a vehicle makes its rounds. The system claims to use minimal energy while being robust and reliable under all transport conditions. During the cooling phase, typically at night, the system runs on 208/230 or 440 volts, as spec'd by the customer, and defrosts and re-cools the plates. Medium- and deep-frozen types are offered for various commodi- ties. A medium-temp system with a blower runs temps in the 35-40 de- gree range (for deli meats, cheeses, and condiments), or at higher temperatures. Deep frozen temps are for ice cream, frozen vegetables, pizza, etc. Circle 340 on Reader Action Card or go to www.hdt.hotresponse.com For more details on these and other new products, see our online Product News section at www.truckinginfo.com/npn.

Tractors can be had in a 6x4 axle configuration with a 2.41 ratio, or a 6x2 tandem with a 2.28 ratio that claims to save nearly 400 pounds.
