Find the right parking cooler for your truck
A COMFORTABLE FEELING – IT’S ALL ABOUT TEMPERATURE AND HUMIDITY
The air temperature felt by the human body may differ from the actual, measured air temperature. Our thermal sensation ranges from warm or hot through comfortable to cold. We all want to enjoy a comfortable climate, and humidity plays a decisive role. When humidity is low, we tolerate even hot air temperatures even though we sweat. Dry heat makes the sweat evaporate quickly from the skin and creates a cooling effect. This won’t happen, though, in a warm humid climate, when humidity is high transpiration diminishes and with it the cooling effect. As a result, we feel the heat even more. The air feels damp and sticky, which may lead to circulatory troubles and insomnia.
Knowing all this, it becomes obvious what a good truck parking cooler ought to do. Cooling alone is not enough; it’s also necessary to reduce the humidity to get a comfortable climate.
OUR TIP: COMPRESSOR PARKING COOLERS
Compressor-powered parking coolers are the most effective ones. Unlike condenser-operator systems they also reduce the air humidity.
PERFORMANCE TESTS CONFIRM BEST RATINGS FOR RTX
CoolAir RTX parking coolers keep it nice and cool, even in soaring heat. CoolAir RTX lives up to its promise even at outside temperatures of 52 °C.
CoolAir air conditioners run longer, quieter and more economical. The RTX is able to guarantee perfect functionality at every tough condition stipulated. Keep this in mind when comparing their performance with competitors’ products!The CoolAir RTX proofed itself robust in a series of tough tests, e. g. accelerated life testing. Tests have been done on the shaker table as well as in the climatic chamber.
At the end of May 2017 a leading East European transport company tested truck parking coolers of four major brands to support the decision-making for a future investment. During the two-day test run, all candidates – including the CoolAir RTX 1000 – were subjected to real-life conditions for about twelve hours. We are very pleased to let you know that our CoolAir RTX 1000 was the test winner in all categories. It even performed better than stipulated in our catalogues.

To cut a long story short, our parking cooler hit all records in the test!
A deeper look into the technology and testing procedures
Superior energy efficiencyCoolAir RTX parking coolers feature a variable speed inverter compressor, which allows for excellent cooling, amazingly quiet operation and superior energy efficiency. Moreover, our latest generation parking coolers are fitted with a smart refrigerant injection technology to make more economical use of refrigerant. While other manufacturers use a rather “static” capillary tubing system, the inventors of the CoolAir RTX opted for an adaptive, thermostat controlled expansion valve. The expansion valve ensures that the evaporator always gets the right amount of refrigerant – no more and no less than required to achieve the desired temperature in the driver’s cab. Quite similar to the automatic transmission of a car, the CoolAir RTX refrigerant injection system automatically adapts to the performance requirements. Capillary systems, by contrast, always inject the same amount of refrigerant. Using the same metaphor, they are like an engine running full throttle all the time.
ADR-compliant for dangerous goods transport
The European Agreement Concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road (ADR for short) contains special provisions as to the security of load, the marking of dangerous goods and the equipment of vehicles participating in road transport. The two CoolAir RTX parking coolers and our CoolAir SP 950 split system are ADR-compliant. That means they can be installed and operated with no further refitting and no special entry in the vehicle documents required.
Here’s what the new CoolAir generation does for fleet operators:
A CoolAir RTX truck parking cooler keeps operating costs down. Especially so if it has such an amazingly long running time like the CoolAir RTX 1000. Our sample calculation shows how much money can be saved if the engine is not running during resting periods to keep the cabin cool. And the protection against wear and tear of the engine is not taken into account ...
Fleet operators also appreciate the benefits in terms of road safety. Resting periods in a quiet and pleasantly cool cabin let drivers continue the journey with full concentration and avoid accidents. Last but not least, fitting a truck with a parking cooler helps find qualified employees and keep them loyal to the company.
