Reefer containers are used to handle temperature sensitive cargo. They can be used to supplement cold storage or used in intermodal transport – Sea, Rail and Road. Reefer containers are capable of controlling temperature ranges between +30 to -40 degrees Celsius. Special reefer units can regulate temperature as low as -60 degree Celsius. Reefer containers are mostly 20’ (6 meter) and 40’ (12 meter) in length. However, we offer special sizes, 8’, 10’ and 45’ according to customer’s requirements

Operational environment
The container is designed and manufactured for the transport of frozen, chilled and general cargo in marine, on highway and railway throughout the world. It must remain serviceable under the operating conditions encountered during each of the above mode of transport, as well as during climatic condition at temperatures of minus 40 deg.C to plus 80 deg.C without any effect on the containers strength and water-tightness.

1) Lifting, loaded or empty, at the top corner fittings vertically by means of spreaders fitted with hooks, shackles or twist-locks.
2) Lifting, loaded or empty, at the bottom corner fittings using slings with terminal fittings at any angle between vertical and 30 degrees to the horizontal.

Road: On flat bed or skeletal chassis, secured by twist-locks or combination of twist-locks and front penetration pins to lock the two (2) bottom corner fittings.

Refrigerated system

refrigeration system

The system is designed to maintain cargo temperatures in a range from –40°C (-22°F) to +30°C (86°F).

The system is designed to operate in ambient temperatures from –30°C to +50°C
The refrigeration system is designed to operate satisfactorily under sea going and environmental conditions as specified below: Salt –laden air, sea spray and high humidity.
Vibrations: of the types encountered on ships, trucks and rail.

The equipment is designed to operate on a nominal 380 V AC / 460 V AC, 3 phase, 50/60 Hz, primary power source. Maximum current draw is 25 Amp.
An automatic system, power supply sensing and correction, is provided to ensure the correct direction of rotation for the fan motors. This is done regardless of the incoming phase sequence from the primary power supply.

The air from the system is delivered to the bottom of the container, with return air through the top of the evaporator coil section (bottom air delivery).

The system is equipped with a data logger, incorporated in the controller.

Pre Trip Inspection
Pre Trip Inspection is a standard test used to ensure that the reefer machine is without failure and can be released for next trip. Under PTI test, in the menu, it is possible to select between a normal PTI test and a Short PTI test.

The Multiple Temperature Setpoints (MTS) program enables the system to change the setpoint temperatures of a shipment automatically up to six times during transport, e.g. for the ripening of bananas.

Reefer Container Electricity Consumption
From our testing, we see below results from using reefer container as storage. The electricity consumption varies mainly depending on frequency of door opening each day.
