Reefer air distribution support

Airflow simulation animation support is provided in “Airflow studio”. LINKI

We had time, so loading a container could take a while. Working hours were still affordable! Refrigerated containers are designed to make optimum use of space. For this reason, cooling has been developed to take up less space. How? To ensure the flow of cold air under and around the products (through the boxes), air was passed through channels at the bottom of the container. Due to the counter pressure of the boxes, the air is distributed quite well within the container and even from the back door side to the top of the products.

  • The boxes were placed directly at the top of the container’s air ducts.

What changed?

Over time, time has become more valuable. That’s why fast loading and unloading has become more important. Therefore, pallets were used without calculating what would happen to the air ducts in the Containers and the quality of the cargo.

  • The pallets are now placed over the air ducts of the containers.

It prevents air distribution…
In fact it is making turbulence!

Unfortunately, we cannot show air currents (turbulence) after the pallets are placed in the container. However, temperature measurements show that cold air does not reach the back of the container and cold air can never reach the top of the container. Because cold air was heavy and hot air was light!

It will get better with “OTFLOW”!

How is this possible? What is “Otflow”?

as everything is different
When the container is loaded with pallets without OTFLOW surface

When the container loaded with pallets has OTFLOW surface..
