Azure Dynamics Corporation received an order from Kidron Body Company for nine Low Emission Electric Power (LEEP Freeze) systems for Foster Farms Dairy. The LEEP is a mild hybrid electric system that provides ancillary power for a variety of applications. (Earlier post.)
Azure’s LEEP Freeze system is coupled with Kidron’s UltraTemp cold plate to create a robust and reliable transport refrigeration solutions.
The LEEP Freeze system draws energy in an efficient manner from a vehicle’s primary engine during normal driving and delivers it to the UltraTemp cold plate technology system, which allows the cold plates to maintain the set temperature for the duration of a typical multi stop delivery route. The system can also be plugged into the electrical grid for off-duty charging. By eliminating the diesel engine that is part of a conventional refrigeration system, UltraTemp with LEEP Freeze can save up to a gallon of fuel per hour, maintains set-point temperatures even when the engine is off, and offers much quieter operation.
