They maintain a cargo temperature of -35 to +35 degree Celsius regardless of outside environmental conditions. Reefer containers manage to perform so by channelling air underneath the cargo through T shaped decking.
Apart from decreasing the temperature of the cargo, it can also increase the temperature of the cargo based on requirements.
The reefer container’s control unit on the body itself allows for the setting and adjust parameters such as temperature, humidity, ventilation and atmosphere. Usually, the settings are changed, the factor is the type of consignment getting exported. To achieve this, a constant supply of electrical power is required.
Since the containers can be transported in many ways, therefore, many benefits of reefer containers are attached to it. Some of the major advantages are mentioned below:
Despite the advantages, there are still limitations or challenges faced by trading practices. Since HFG refrigerants are still commonly used in reefer containers. This refringent contributes majorly to global warming, hence the usage of this product will harm the environment which is very essential to mankind, therefore, the industry should seek eco-friendly alternatives.
Except for its advantages, several factors harm the environment and plays with it majorly, therefore, to seek for perfect judgement some instructions need to be followed.
|Tight packaging, stability and prevention of shifting are essential.||Fill cargo above the mentioned line.|
|Set the correct unit temperature for the consignment.||Fill cargo till the end of T-floor.|
|Check the dehumidification controls.||Allow restriction to block the flow of air.|
|Correct ventilation settings.||Allow any gaps between the pallets and gates.|
