Frigo DC

Fully integrated cooling: smarter, space-saving and energy-efficient

Frigo DC
Today’s compact van models offer little space for retrofitting a transport cooling system in the engine compartment. However, the new generation Frigo DC systems solve this problem with an integrated compressor and condenser unit fitted in the spare wheel compartment. An easy to use control panel adds convenience, while the innovative variable speed inverter compressor with smart derating function prevents excessive battery discharging and ensures reliable cooling, maximum efficiency and a longer service life.

  • Fully integrated cooling system is compact and does not require roof-mount structure
  • Engine-independent installation – compressor/condenser unit placed in spare wheel compartment
  • Highly efficient variable speed compressor for high performance, low energy consumption and longer service life
  • Easy service and maintenance – less components, no drive belts to check or replace

Frigo Evaporator

Convenient cooling without obstacles

Frigo Evaporator
In all Dometic Frigo cooling systems, the evaporator unit is mounted to the ceiling of the cargo area, rather than on the roof. As a result, there are no problems accessing underground car parks, and greater stability when driving because the vehicle’s centre of gravity remains unchanged. Moreover, there’s no need for a roof cut-out, thus removing any risk of corrosion.

What are the Benefits of Dometic’s Transport Refrigerators?

Our transport refrigeration units are specifically designed to solve the most common spatial problems while providing a series of useful features. The cooling system in our Frigo DC 3500 model is an independent kit that fits inside the spare wheel compartment, for example. The mounting design for the evaporator avoids the need for a roof cut-out, which presents potential road hazards when traveling under low bridges. Enjoy the benefits of an optimal-performance truck refrigeration unit with a long life-cycle, low maintenance schedule and an energy conserving engineering design.

Where to Install Your Transport Refrigeration

Our units are designed to keep cool temperatures by using smarter designs and mounting systems. This is ideal for modern vans, which typically have smaller engine compartments than the older models. The Dometic condenser and compressor fits within the spare wheel compartment, which is located beneath the vehicle.

No Need for a Roof Mount or Special Cutouts

The Dometic evaporator fits on the ceiling area inside of the cargo space. It is a fully integrated system designed specifically for the spatial limitations within transport vehicles. There is no roof mounting device needed, and the light weight of the unit ensures a stable center of balance for the vehicle. Older cooling systems could shift this balance point as well as create hazards when protruding from a roof-cutout installation.

Save Energy and Extend the Life of Your Cooling System

Our innovative transport refrigeration units truly capture the expertise of Dometic’s system designers in both form and function. For example, the compressor performance is automatically reduced when the available voltage is lower than required, and this limits the drain on the vehicle’s battery. It is an energy-saving feature that also extends the total service life of the unit.

Why Does Dometic offer the Best Solution for Transport Cooling?

The Dometic transport refrigeration systems offer an entire package of features that make it the best supplier in the transport refrigeration market. For example, the truck refrigeration unit is around 40 percent lighter than similar transporter cooling systems offered by competitors. Dometic transporter cooling systems offer automatic gas defrosting every two hours, which reduces the need to monitor this function. Service lights indicate that a maintenance check is due, and this will prolong the lifespan of the truck refrigeration unit.

Buyers benefit from a range of additional features that were added to optimize your experience while limiting any hassles. For example, the control panel is a convenient addition that allows you to quickly make adjustments as needed. Minimize excess discharges from the battery with the smart derating function. It is a part of the variable speed inverter, which is a major innovation offered only through Dometic’s transporter cooling systems.
