TRANSPORT REFRIGERATION

While Globalization has made the relative distance between two regions of the world vastly smaller, the physical separation of these same regions is still a very important reality. Phone calls, emails, and videos can be transmitted in fractions of seconds to all corners of the globe, but physical objects such as a bushel of grapes, a drug or a bodily organ cannot. It takes time and coordination to efficiently move a shipment and every delay can cost money and in some cases may even cost lives. To ensure that cargo does not become damaged or compromised throughout this process, businesses in the pharmaceutical, medical and food industries are relying more and more on the cold chain technology. Road transport refrigeration equipment are required to operate reliably in much harsher environments than stationary refrigeration equipment. Due to the wide range of operating conditions and constraints imposed by available space and weight, transport refrigeration equipment has lower efficienc…
