Efficient refrigeration systems for containers

A refrigerated container or reefer is a container, used for shipping of temperature-sensitive cargo. These containers have one or multiple temperature chambers. This application is one of the most challenging refrigeration applications when it comes to design and reliability of the system. The container has to withstand vibrations, shock and harsh conditions at sea. All components must pass salt-spray tests and comply with other stringent norms to ensure safe refrigeration of the cargo during the journey.

Danfoss provides reliable controls and heat exchangers to build efficient refrigeration systems for containers. In our product portfolio you will also find products for CO₂, which has great potential to replace HFCs in container refrigeration systems. Reefer systems are designed with either semi-hermetic reciprocating or scroll compressors. Multiple capacity/speed compressors are preferred for use in reefers. Danfoss components will always enable optimal performance of your refrigerated container.

    ETS electric expansion valves

    ETS is a series of electric expansion valves for precise liquid injection in evaporators for air conditioning and refrigeration applications. The valve piston and linear positioning design is fully balanced, providing bi-flow feature as well as solenoid tight shut-off function in both flow directions. ETS valves are compatible with electronic control solutions from Danfoss and other manufacturers.
