Azure Dynamics and Kidron Collaborate On Cold Transport Solution for Foster Farms Dairy

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.
