Polar Corp. has debuted its first trailer designed for the North American propane industry. The Polar NexGen MC-331 highway transport trailer is designed for durability and low lifecycle costs, the company said.

It is a highway transport trailer with a powder-coated barrel for up to three times the life of traditional paint. According to Polar, the coating limits nicks to the point of impact and in most cases will eliminate the need to refurbish and repaint the barrel every three to five years.

The NexGen MC-331 trailer has all-stainless piping and aluminum or stainless decking and fenders for further corrosion protection. It is also equipped with all-welded liquid piping, Blackmer or Corken product pumps, Marshall Excelsior valves, and BASE Engineering radio remote shutdown systems.

Fender and decking construction is modular for easy service and lower repair costs.

The trailer was developed by Polar and Jarco, a producer of propane bobtails. Polar acquired Jarco in 2010.

“This trailer builds on the success of the NexGen propane bobtail introduced by Polar earlier this year,” said Ted Fick, president & CEO of Polar Corp. “It extends the benefits of the NexGen bobtail to over-the-road propane transporters.”
