SINGAPORE – Cosco Shipping Lines recently upgraded its refrigerated freight fleet with next-generation EverFRESHÂ® Carrier Transicold active controlled atmosphere (AC) systems. High performance systems allow perishable shipments to travel further, while maintaining product quality. Carrier Transicold is part of Carrier Global Corporation (NYSE: CARR), the world’s leading provider of healthy, safe, sustainable and intelligent construction and cold chain solutions.
âThe next generation EverFRESH units will maintain the atmosphere at precise points to maintain product quality and extend the shelf life of a wide range of perishables,â said Suresh Duraisamy, Associate Director, Global Container Refrigeration, Carrier Transicold. âThe systems deliver the quality our customers have come to expect, with new technology that leverages the rugged design and proven performance of first generation EverFRESH units to propel their fleets into the future.
Using active AC technology, the EverFRESH system:
- Optimizes the balance of oxygen and carbon dioxide (CO2) in a refrigerated container, slowing down the respiration and natural ripening of the goods inside.
- Generates high purity nitrogen to move oxygen faster and more responsively, rather than relying solely on cargo breathing to gradually reduce oxygen levels.
- Maintains positive air pressure in the container, making it much less susceptible to box leaks than other types of systems.
âCarrier Transicold’s EverFRESH controlled atmosphere system has a proven track record based on past unit performance, and it allows us to handle a wider range of perishables around the world, protect them and ship them safely. confidence in newer and larger markets for our customers, âsaid Chen Yang, Director of Sales and Marketing, Reefer Trade, Cosco Shipping Lines.
The active injection technology of the EverFRESH system allows the container to be pre-loaded with CO2 at the start of a trip and automatically add more during the trip. Carrier Transicold is the only container refrigeration system manufacturer on the market today to offer an AC system with an integrated option to add CO.2 on demand.
The EverFRESH system is part of Carrier’s healthy, safe and sustainable cold chain program to preserve and protect the supply of food, drugs and vaccines. Learn more at www.corporate.carrier.com/healthycoldchain or visit www.transicold.carrier.com.
