Reefer manufacturer Carrier Transicold has announced that its NaturaLINE reefers can now reach new levels of coldness.
The reefers can now achieve and maintain a temperature of -40 degrees Celsius, which is also -40 degrees Fahrenheit.
The company’s senior product manager for global container refrigeration, Jim Taeckens, said: “The minus 40 C capability can help shipping lines – especially those seeking environmentally responsible solutions – to provide enhanced offerings for customers who prefer colder frozen temperatures for maintaining quality attributes of some premium cargoes, like ice cream, shrimp, sushi and other seafood over lengthy voyages.”
At the Intermodal Europe conference in Amsterdam, the company said it had received an order from container leasing company Seaco for 100 NaturaLINE reefers.
At the same conference, the company announced that it was introducting TripWise diagnostic software, which aims to reduce expenses related to routine inspections of reefers.
