A Reefer container has an operating temperature of -25ºC to +25ºC, and they are designed to maintain the temperature of the product inside. For example, product at room or ambient temperature should not be loaded if it is to be stored at -20ºC. The product should be brought down to its storage temperature before it is loaded. The reefer will then maintain the temperature.
The internal walls of a reefer container consist of 75mm of polyurethane foam covered with a stainless steel external shell. The base features an aluminium T-bar flooring system, which allows air to flow around the product.
NOR (non-operating reefer) containers are reefers that do not have an operating refrigeration unit. They have slightly smaller internal dimensions than a standard shipping container but are highly sought after for their temperature insulation properties.

Reefer Servicing and Maintenance
A regular three-monthly inspection/service is recommended for all refrigerated shipping containers to ensure the continuing efficient and reliable operation of the equipment. Items that are inspected during a service are: motors, fans, electronic calibration, defrost operation and gas level. We can arrange to establish a routine servicing agreement with our refrigeration engineer. Please contact us so we can provide you with a quote for costs.
Hose down or air-clean the condenser bi-monthly to clean the fins. Failure to clean will reduce performance, increase power use and eventually lead to failure.
