For transportation of perishable goods and other products that require a constant temperature, often use isothermal containers, bodies.
The temperature in such vans can forcibly change from -20 to +12 ° C and be constant for a long period of time.
How a vehicle with an insulated body is constructed
The body of an isothermal van is one-piece sandwich panels with alloy reinforcements that protect the van from rust. Panels insulated with polystyrene foam are glued with polyurethane adhesive. This material is vlogostok and well holds a given temperature, so if the shipment is carried out in a hot period of time, the cargo is not afraid of weather conditions. However, how well the temperature is maintained depends on the thickness of the sandwich panels and the climate of the region in which the cargo is shipped.
The body of the container is finished in durable plastic with polyester resin and fiberglass, so the sun’s rays do not affect the body. The van has a metal centimeter cladding on the outside and galvanized walls on the inside.
Each of these vans has a door with a closing mechanism, the possibility of turning on the light.
On request, isothermal containers are equipped with shelving, additional door wings, fasteners for the cargo, curtains and other accessories.
The box isothermal body is easy to operate, because the control mechanism is located in the driver’s cab.
Other types of storage containers
In addition to isothermal containers (isotherms), other types of bodies are often used:
thermally insulated – it may not have refrigeration, heated equipment;
refrigerated – it has a cooling unit and a refrigerant (dry ice);
heated containers with a heating unit;
container with a fitting and for loose material;
other types of containers designed for individual cargoes.
