From fresh to chilled to frozen.
Anytime, anywhere.
The Thermo King MAGNUM®:
peace of mind, no
matter what you
Let’s face it, colder is better. Especially when
it comes to transporting premium cargo like
seafood, ice cream or pharmaceuticals.
And no other reefer unit gets colder than
the Thermo King MAGNUM. It’s the only
refrigerated container unit on the market
that can maintain a -35ºC setpoint.
But deep frozen cargo isn’t the only
commodity that benefits from the
MAGNUM’s unprecedented range.
Thanks to an increased pull down capacity,
and the industry’s most precise temperature
control, the MAGNUM is the most reliable
way to ensure all your customer’s cargo fresh or frozen - arrives at its destination
in optimal condition.
The recommended
storage temperature
for all fishery
products ...
is -30ºC.

Organization’s “Food For All”
The MAGNUM: tops the competition in every
What must the reefer unit of tomorrow have?
We asked, you told us: Your feedback was
virtually unanimous.
• Any box temperature (-35ºC and above)
• In any ambient temperature (even +50ºC!)
• Less complexity/higher reliability
• Continuous performance over time
Armed with that information, our designers
and engineers went to work. The results?
Everything you demanded, and then some.
✓ Coldest Setpoint
Only the MAGNUM can maintain a -35ºC
setpoint. Meaning only the MAGNUM can
guarantee your deep frozen cargo will
stay deep-frozen no matter where you haul.
✓ Highest Cooling Capacity
Due to the extreme environmental conditions
cargo boxes are exposed to, they typically
experience an increase in heat leakage of
3-5% per year. Taking that into account,
even a 15-year old MAGNUM has the
capacity to maintain deep frozen cargo in
+50ºC ambient. No other reefer unit can
make that claim.
✓ Fastest Pull Down Capacity
Higher cooling capacity means faster pull
down. And faster pull down means better
quality product upon delivery.
✓ Simplest Design
With fewer components and an overall
design that’s easy to service, you’ll have
lower maintenance costs and more uptime
with the MAGNUM.
category that counts.
Longest Usable Box Life
Unlike traditional units, which are only
effective in moving deep frozen products for
the first 5 years, the MAGNUM offers enough
cooling capacity to maintain -29ºC throughout
the 15-year life of the container. Not only
does this make each box more profitable, it
also eliminates paying repositioning costs for
deep frozen shipments.
Most Reliable Compressor
Our aluminized scroll compressor - customdesigned by Thermo King and the world’s
largest scroll compressor manufacturer- can
withstand the most brutal environments
imaginable. That’s why we have the reputation
for having the most reliable compressors in the
Largest Cargo Capacity
25% lighter than the standard industry units,
the MAGNUM can significantly increase your
overall cargo capacity.
…R-404A provides better
performance over the entire
range of box temperatures
than R-134a.

Consultant, DuPont Suva® Refrigerants
What does -35°C mean for
your customers and your
bottom line?
With the industry’s lowest TEWI, a deep
frozen box life that’s double the competition,
and plenty of next-generation advantages, like
our digital economized scroll with corrosionfree coating, there’s a lot more to like about
the MAGNUM than just -35ºC (see inside).
Still, it’s that extra margin of safety that makes
the MAGNUM the indisputable choice to haul
all your valued cargo.
It provides the flexibility that lets you expand
your market share. It provides the capacity
that lets you haul deep frozen cargo throughout the life of your box. And it provides a
reassuring level of comfort to give both you
and your customers peace of mind.
Lowest Power Consumption
In laboratory tests and field trials, the
MAGNUM, compared to the competition, was
able to reduce overall energy consumption an
average of 30%. That adds up to even more
money on your bottom line.
Lowest TEWI
Numbers don’t lie. After combining the direct
GWP and the indirect GWP, the numbers show
that the competition produces significantly
more CO2 than the MAGNUM. Translation?
The MAGNUM has the lowest TEWI in the
Why is colder better?
• Reduced product degradation
• Improved texture
• Reduced product loss
• Increased storage life
• Increased cargo protection throughout the
cold chain
• Maintain optimal deep frozen characteristics
