Offshore Reefer Container Size Guide

Picking the right reefer size for the job is important.

You don’t want a very large reefer if you are sending supplies to nearby rigs.

And you also don’t want a small reefer if you are sending supplies over a long distance.

What is the purpose of a reefer container?

The explanation is simple: some cargoes require particular transportation conditions in order to avoid any compromise in product quality or safety.

Controlling CO2 and O2 levels in a container containing natural goods, for example, can lengthen the ageing cycle, allowing it to be rescued from staling, and reefers can accomplish it for you.

Some commodities must be shipped cold, solidified, or at specific temperatures. During the trip, reefer compartments can retain the cargo at the required temperatures.

The Advantages of a Reefer Container

  • They don’t need cold storage when they get to their destination since they have self-contained cooling systems.
  • They come in a variety of sizes and dimensions, making them suitable for various modes of travel, including land, sea, and air.
  • They may be separated into multiple sections and areas at varied temperatures to allow frozen and chilled items to be transported safely in one container.
  • They’re thought to be tough and dependable.

There are, however, reasons to despise them, just as there are reasons to admire them.

These containers have been found to contribute to global warming by emitting toxic gases that are hazardous to our ecosystem.

There’s no need to be concerned, though, because, as a result of recent sustainable initiatives by several nations, ways are being researched and developed to make their transportation and operations more environmentally friendly.

It’s important to remember that the reefer container can only maintain the temperature of previously chilled items and cannot reduce the temperature on its own.

The size range of reefers

Reefer Container Heights

The refrigerated container is available in a variety of sizes and technical uses, although practically all of them are 20 feet long. The usual size for shipping containers is identical units.

The dimensions of reefer containers might vary based on the kind of container.

What happens if the temperature isn't kept constant?

What happens if the temperature isn’t kept constant?

To sustain the specified temperatures, the container must have enough air circulation.

Temperature change has a minimal endurance threshold.

If it exceeds the required temperature, further hours or days will be required to get it to the desired temperature.

If the temperature is not maintained, the cargo may be refused to owe to the likelihood of pathogens in the items.

Conclusion

In conclusion, we have discussed what is the purpose of a reefer container and the advantages of a reefer container.

We have also talked about reefer container heights as well as the size range of reefers.

Finally, we lightly touched on what happens if a reefer containers temperature isn’t kept constant.
