Cosco Shipping Lines recently added to its refrigerated cargo fleet with EverFRESH active controlled-atmosphere systems from Carrier Transicold.
These systems enable perishable shipments to travel farther, while retaining commodity quality.
Using active controlled-atmosphere (CA) technology, the EverFRESH system optimises the balance of oxygen and carbon dioxide within a refrigerated container, slowing respiration and the natural ripening of the commodity inside.
It generates high-purity nitrogen to displace oxygen, rather than relying on cargo respiration alone to gradually reduce oxygen levels.
The CA system maintains a positive air pressure within the container, making it less sensitive to box leakage.
Active injection technology allows the container to be pre-charged with CO2 at the start of a voyage and automatically add more over the course of the trip.
Carrier Transicold claims it is the only container refrigeration system manufacturer in the market today offering a CA system with an integrated option to add CO2 on demand.
The EverFRESH system is part of Carrier’s 'Healthy, Safe, Sustainable Cold Chain Program' to preserve and protect the supply of food, medicine and vaccines.
