When it comes to refrigerated transport by truck, we rely on the refrigeration unit. This aggregate is a device that can control the temperature of the container. In the case of trucks, the aggregate is mobile and these vehicles are called isothermal vehicles.
An isothermal vehicle is a means of transport with insulated walls, roof, floor and doors. This prevents heat from the outside from entering the refrigeration unit.
Thanks to the individual refrigeration unit, it is possible to lower the interior temperature even if the outside temperature is 30 °C on average. The ability to lower this temperature is used to classify the vehicle type. This is necessary to obtain products with specific thermal conditions. This is also one of the most common requirements in land transport.
The main objective of refrigerated transport is to eliminate excess heat that can occur in normal means of transport and to keep the temperature of the perishable freight being transported stable, so that the right conditions are maintained throughout the transport. Normally, this type of transport is used for freight such as food, flowers, frozen products, etc.
In order for refrigerated transport vehicles to maintain the right temperatures, they must be equipped with fully insulated transport units. The components that enable refrigeration are the compressor, condenser and evaporator. In all cases, the refrigeration equipment to be used must be capable of operating effectively at outside temperatures ranging from -40°C to 55°C. This should be done while maintaining the precise internal temperature, which can be between -35°C and 22°C. To facilitate smooth operation, regardless of the type of refrigeration used, the freight should be refrigerated at the time of loading, as bringing it into the vehicle at a higher temperature would require more power and expense for the refrigeration equipment.
