“Dometic is continuously innovating products that bring comfort and convenience to drivers. Whether it’s keeping them cool on hot summer nights, or providing refrigeration for cold drinks and fresh food, our products offer trucking professionals the comforts of home when out on the road,” said James Kerrigan, VP of OEM Sales in Dometic’s Commercial and Passenger Vehicle division.
“Our new and improved Split-System BliZZard battery-powered air conditioning system lets drivers eliminate fuel consumption when resting while still enjoying a comfortable sleeping temperature in their cabs,” said Kerrigan. “The BliZZard is powerful, durable, compact and efficient.”
Dometic also offers a vast array of refrigeration products. “Whether built-in or portable, Dometic has refrigerators to fit the needs of any driver,” said Kerrigan. “Our CD drawer refrigerators are easy to access, and our CF coolers can even provide deep-freezing capabilities on the road.”
Dometic will be exhibiting the following products at Booth #14252:
Dometic Split-System BliZZard Air Conditioning – This highly efficient auxiliary A/C unit allows drivers to cool their sleeper cabs without running their truck engines. The quiet-running BliZZard is simple to install, and provides 10+ hours of cooling. The unit has a smart digital thermostat and is made of heavy duty materials that are vibration and corrosion resistant. Available in 7,000 and 10,000 BTU models, the battery-powered split system allows the noise of the condenser unit to remain outside while the quieter evaporator unit blows cool air to the cab’s interior. Made in the USA, the BliZZard is SmartWay and EPA certified. Also available with optional electric heat to provide heated comfort without running the engine.
Commercial-Grade Rooftop Air Conditioner – Dometic's Commercial Grade rooftop air conditioners are designed to overcome harsh and unusual road and weather conditions. Many standard units break down after just four hours of extreme vibration testing, while the Dometic Commercial Grade is still going strong at 30 hours and more. The unit is rugged, and has been designed for strength, utilizing galvanized steel while weighing just 91 pounds.
CD Line of Drawer Refrigerators – The CD Series of drawer refrigerators are designed to make intelligent use of the limited space in vehicle cabs by turning empty niches into a practical cold store for drinks and food. The rugged, durable CD Series comes in three models – the CD20, offering 20-liter capacity that fits under a truck seat, the CD30, offering 30-liter capacity and the CD-50, with 50 liters of capacity.
CF Series of Portable Refrigerators – The CF Series of portable refrigerators/freezers offer powerful cooling and deep-freezing from 50° to 0°F and state-of-the-art electronics. The CF Series comes in seven sizes, from a slim 11-liter model to the extra-large capacity 110-liter model. Lightweight and portable, the CF Series units operate on 12VDC up to 25 L and AC/DC from 35L to 110L. The units can operate as a refrigerator or freezer, depending on the temperature setting, and they come with sturdy, convenient carry handles.
TropiCool Thermoelectric Cooler – This unique portable device, powered by thermoelectric technology, can act as a cooler or as a warming box to keep food cool or hot. Once the unit reaches the desired temperature, it goes into power-save mode. The TropiCool offers vertical space for 2-liter bottles, highly effective insulation, a detachable lid with snap lock closure and handy carrying grips.
