Monitor and manage perishable products

Danfoss refrigeration applications for trucks, trailers, and vans are designed to help monitor and manage perishable products such as foods, pharmaceuticals and chemicals. This application is one of the most challenging due to wide ranging box and ambient temperatures and the need to withstand extremely harsh conditions with high humidity and corrosive environments within truck, trailer and van refrigeration units.

Our solutions allow for superior control of temperature and humidity, preserving all types of perishable cargo. 

Danfoss components for truck, trailer and van refrigeration systems include compact expansion valves, ball valves, filter driers, pressure switches and regulators, and solenoid valves. Quiet, efficient, DC compressors minimize energy use and Danfoss components are designed for use with natural refrigerants. Additional components such as sight glasses and check valves also enable reliable performance and diagnostics.
