Carrier Transicold introduces active controlled-atmosphere system
Carrier Transicold has introduced a new active controlled-atmosphere technology called EverFresh.
The technology gives premium performance for fleets and container leasing companies, according to a news release.
The system optimizes the balance of oxygen and carbon dioxide within a refrigerated container, according to the release, slowing respiration and the natural ripening of the commodity inside. EverFresh generates high-purity nitrogen to more quickly and responsively displace oxygen, rather than relying on respiration alone to gradually reduce oxygen levels, according to the release.
“The active nature of the EverFresh system can handle a broader range of perishable commodities than modified controlled-atmosphere systems, making it a more versatile choice for many customers,” Jim Taeckens, senior product manager for global container refrigeration for Carrier Transicold, said in the release.
“Another key benefit of the EverFresh system’s active technology is that it maintains a positive air pressure within the container, making it far less sensitive to box leakage than other types of systems,” Taeckens said in the release.
The new EverFresh system will be available in early 2020 for Carrier Transicold PrimeLine refrigeration systems equipped with the Micro-Link 5 controller option, according to the release.
The majority of Carrier Transicold's container refrigeration operations are based in Singapore.
