Cryogenic refrigerants such as liquid carbon dioxide (CO2) or nitrogen (N2) are an extremely effective way of ensuring a temperature-controlled atmosphere during the transport of sensitive foodstuffs. Unlike mechanical installations, cryogenic refrigeration provides on-demand, portable and flexible cooling power. These systems are also extremely quiet – which can be a key advantage near residential areas or at night time.
In addition, cryogenic refrigerants eliminate the need to use traditional mechanical refrigeration systems that may contain HCFC or HFC fluorocarbon refrigerants that can contribute to ozone depletion and global warming. Plus an inert nitrogen atmosphere in the refrigerated space helps protect perishable goods and liquids against oxidation.
We have extensive expertise in various types of in-transit refrigeration methods, scaling from dry ice (solid CO2) solutions for smaller batches to liquid nitrogen (LIN) systems for entire trucks/trailers. If you wish to divide your trailer into different temperature zones for varied foodstuffs, our SNOWCOOLTM 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.
For larger shipping volumes, our FROSTCRUISE® in-transit refrigeration system is an efficient, economical, cryogenic trucking solution. It eliminates the noise, pollution, greenhouse gas and refrigerant challenges associated with conventional mechanical refrigeration units.
