Transport cooling systems ensure that frozen or chilled food remains at the right temperature at all times. In line with statutory regulations and Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) concepts, they keep the cold chain intact – from manufacturer to consumer.
Cryogenic gas-based cooling systems are primarily used to transport products from a wholesaler’s central warehouse to a sales outlet, or from a catering kitchen to an event venue. They require no electrical connections or diesel units, run quietly and release few emissions. In addition, they offer effective and rapid cooling power, especially when doors are opened frequently. They also support a range of temperature zones.
We offer tailor-made solutions, based on three transport systems:
Container cooling uses various cryogenic agents to cool insulated containers:
Dry ice has a temperature of –78 °C. Cold is released through sublimation. Dry ice is flexible, easy to use and available in slabs of different sizes (0.6–10 kg).
Cooling plates are filled with a specified brine solution that releases cold as it thaws. They are suitable for cooling fresh (0–5° C) and deep-frozen meals (-21°) and can be reused after freezing in special refrigerators.
Dry ice snow (SNOWCOOL®) also cools via sublimation. Dry ice snow is produced in an isotainer, by feeding liquid carbon dioxide into a built-in snow box. The quantity of snow produced can be adapted to the products being transported.
Direct delivery (drop shipping)
Various temperature zones
Variable volumes for different temperature zones
Journeys with numerous stops, or where the door is opened frequently.
Vehicle cooling involves cooling the entire vehicle body. For this, there are two main cryogenic systems. One system cools the vehicle indirectly using CO2, while the other involves using nitrogen to directly or indirectly cool vehicles.
Large volumes requiring the same temperature
Journeys where the door is opened less frequently
Specialized logistics systems.
Package cooling (shipping prototypes and samples)
Dry ice can also be used to cool smaller shipping units, such as packages or boxes, in the form of cool bag sheets or nuggets. The amount of dry ice can be measured precisely, to achieve the temperature required for both deep-freeze and above-zero shipping. Dry ice package cooling is ideal for cooling foodstuffs such as seafood products, cheese and cooked meats, animal feed and samples for three days or more (for intercontinental shipping).
In cases where smaller quantities or only a few samples are to be shipped, dry ice (ICEBITZZZ®) can also be supplied in polystyrene boxes by express courier (6–25 kg dry ice/package). For regular package shipments, it can be ordered in small quantities under agreement.
