Coldtainer USA, providers of portable containers that can be used for precise temperature control in any transportation application, announced the availability of a new highly versatile and reliable solution for temperature-controlled transportation.
“Coldtainers are a very flexible and convenient solution for professionals who have to transport perishable goods while still maintaining health and safety standards,” says Terry Koerner, general manager of Coldtainer USA. “The direct expansion refrigerated containers are a portable and cost effective technology for transporting food, medical and pharmaceutical supplies when precise temperature control and freeze protection capabilities are needed.
“Coldtainers are the perfect product for companies that need flexibility,” he adds.. “They provide options for meeting a variety of logistics needs and for transporting mixed loads at a much lower upfront, operating and maintenance cost than traditional refrigeration units. As a standalone technology, Coldtainers don’t require insulated and outfitted vans or trucks, which also lowers capital costs and improves resale values because non-converted units are more attractive to a wider range of used vehicle buyers.”
Available in front opening or top loading models in a range of capacities and with numerous cooling, freezing and heating options, Coldtainers can use battery, shore and solar power sources on vehicles and at facilities to operate on AC or DC power. Equipped with refrigeration units designed to withstand vibrations related to vehicle use, the stand-alone containers are made from highly durable molded polyethylene and food-grade materials, are easy to clean and are in compliance with health and safety standards.
All Coldtainer temperature-controlled container models feature an integrated battery monitor and a user-friendly digital display to view temperature and status and for precise temperature set point control. The portable cooling containers also record temperatures and have a mobile Bluetooth capability for downloading data to meet recordkeeping requirements.
