The food industry is challenged to ensure a constant temperature at all stages in the cold chain – transportation included. Even a short-term upward or downward change in temperature can have an adverse effect on frozen and perishable foodstuffs. This also applies to the institutional catering segment where meals must be protected on their journey from a central kitchen to a school, hospital or other care facility.
One of the most effective ways of ensuring a temperature-controlled atmosphere is with cryogenic refrigerants such as liquid carbon dioxide (CO2) or nitrogen (N2). Unlike mechanical installations, cryogenic refrigeration provides on-demand, portable, silent and flexible constant temperature capabilities. A low noise factor can be a key advantage near residential areas in particular.
In addition, cryogenic refrigerants eliminate the need for harmful chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) refrigerants. Plus an inert nitrogen atmosphere in the refrigerated space helps protect perishable goods and liquids against oxidation.
We have extensive expertise in both direct and indirect in-transit refrigeration solutions. If you wish to divide your trailer into different temperature zones for varied foodstuffs, our SNOWCOOL® isothermal trolleys are ideal. In the catering industry, SNOWCOOL is also the perfect way to protect ready-to-heat-and-serve meals on their way to the point of consumption. We can also supply dry ice packs and CO2 snow to meet individual or home shipment cooling needs.
Not only do our in-transit and catering solutions reduce capital expenditure compared with mechanical installations, they also offer a long service life and minimal maintenance costs.
