Working Principle of Refrigerator Shipping Containers

A reefer is a sealed transportation module, equipped with a special system of automatic unit for sustaining necessary temperature regime. A special container is used for transporting perishable goods, cosmetics, medications and chemicals in defined climate conditions. A refrigeration unit has a system to regulate all the parameters. Modules have an integrated connector to power network of a marine, railway and automobile vehicle. Compact construction meets all the industry standards and has a i-block to determine possible malfunctions of the equipment.

Characteristics of a refrigerator container

A reefer is made of steel skeleton sheathed with aluminium and stainless steel sheets. Light panels of polyurethane foam are used for thermal insulation of a box. Inner walls have a textured surface to enable air circulation when a load is packed tightly. Floor is strengthened with a profile to enable containers movement by a universal automatic loader.

Steel insulated walls have a safe locking system that promotes total tightness of a camera and protects a container from illegal entry. 20-foot refrigerator containers with 29,1 m³ cooling camera volume are used for transporting small portions of products. 40-foot reefers with 61,3 m³ volume can fit up to 30 tones of goods.

Main advantages of reefers are:

    • safety of a load in every condition,
    • reliable and autonomous work of the system,
    • possibility to set temperature regimes from - 25 to + 25 °C,
    • setting freeze and defrost cycles,
    • adjustment of humidity levels,
    • continuous sustenance of a given temperature in case of emergency power off.
    The equipment ensures constant circulation and equal allocation of air flows inside container. An operator sets a needed regime and can monitor cargo condition with the help of sensors. Technology is designed for long and continuous work in the economy mode. E-system uses sound notification to claim a malfunction.

    Where to buy/ rent a refrigerator container

    Transportable modules are produced in Japan, China, South Korea and the USA. Purchasing a brand new reefer will request a lot of money and precise attention to learning and checking all the characteristics. A perfect alternative is renting or booking such a container for a specific delivery. You can find the best options on the website and contact the companies directly.
