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.
Features and benefits
Precise temperature control
Stainless steel products for high hygiene and low corrosion risk
Reliable solutions, low operation and maintenance costs
Products suitable for use with all common refrigerants, including natural refrigerants
AKV electric expansion valves
AKV are electrically operated expansion valves designed for refrigerating plants. The AKV valves are normally controlled by a controller from Danfoss’ range of ADAP-KOOL® controllers.
Compressor and condenser controllers
Danfoss offers a range of compressor and condenser capacity controls for use in food retail, in compact systems as well as in large power packs.
Compressors for refrigeration
Danfoss focuses on providing energy efficient, sustainable and smart refrigeration compressors for a varied range of commercial applications such as cold rooms, display windows, ice making machines, glass door merchandizers, process cooling etc. Their qualification with lower GWP refrigerants make them compliant with refrigerant regulations such as F-Gas in Europe.
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.
The range of filter driers covers both hermetic filter driers and filter driers with exchangeable core.
