Frequently asked questions

Do the units come with plug-in / shore power?

We include all the parts necessary for your installation, except for the tools you need for heavy equipment installation and the batteries. Batteries are generally not included with shipping because they are very heavy and it would significantly increase the amount you would have to pay to Volta Air. The batteries we use are fairly popular and you should be able to find them in your local markets.

For detailed information about these batteries, please contact us here or call us at +1 (855) 210 3839.

How long does it take for me to receive the unit?

If the unit is in stock they will be shipped within 48 hours. Depending on location the unit will be received within 1 to 2 weeks.

What is the operating current load of the Pluto and Titan?

The max operating load for the Pluto is from 1.1kW to 1.6kW when starting. As the refrigerated compartment cools the unit will begin to work less and turn on/off. The average working load is 650W (13V @ 50A), this of course depends on the ambient temperature and insulation properties of the cooling compartment. The VAR450 Titan has double the capacity and operating load.

Do you know anyone in our area who can install the unit?

We have installers across North America and help customer’s facilitate their own install process. Depending on fleet size we can also have a Volta Air representative come to train yourself or technicians.

How long does it take to install?

Pluto takes approximately 1 day to install, with the EuroLiner  product line, depending on van the whole retrofit can be done in 2-4 days.

How do I become an authorized dealer?

We have a dealer application form that you can fill out and send to info@voltaair.ca

What type of insulation do you recommend?

At Volta Air we understand that customers have varying budgets and applications. We typically recommend our EuroLiner kits since we have tested and can guarantee performance with the known insulation properties. However if the job is being done internally we would recommend using; polyurethane or polyisocyanurate. EPS and XPS can do the job as well depending on thickness, it is important to try to achieve a R-value of approximately 10 for fridge applications.

Will this unit work on my older vehicle?

The unit will work with any vehicle the following can be done; alternator upgraded, battery bank added with plug-in, solar power integration.
