Reference on Temperature and Moisture of Goods Transportation for Refrigerated Trucks

Aug 09,2017

A refrigerator car that equipped with transport refrigeration system is used to deliver frozen and fresh goods at specific temperature. And refrigerator cars differ from simple insulated boxcars and ventilated boxcars (commonly used for transporting fruit), neither of which are fitted with cooling apparatus. Reefers can be ice-cooled, come equipped with any one of a variety of transport refrigeration system, or utilize carbon dioxide (either as dry ice, or in liquid form) as a cooling agent. 

The standard storage temperature for refrigerator car equipped with chiller units is -5℃20℃, and temperature for refrigerator car with freezer units is -18-15℃, which is international standard. While there are still so many people feel confused about the transporting temperature and moisture in fruits, vegetables, seafood, flowers and other goods. So today Guchen Thermo will offer you some suggestions according to the problems that our customer frequently asked.
