Talk:Refrigerated container

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search


I work for a steamship line and we use the word "terminal" in place of "quay."

While a reefer will have an integral refrigeration unit, they rely on external power, from electrical power points at a land based site, a container ship or on quay.

I'm not exactly sure whether the British or American term should be used in this article. -- 01:53, 29 June 2007 (UTC) KeplerNiko

Reefer Cargo[edit]

In my opinion, the last few paragraphs lead one to believe that reefers are used only for consumable food products. Reefers, in fact, carry a variety of loads, and though a large portion may be those types of things, there are lots of chemicals and other substances that have to be transported in a temperature-controlled environment. -- 01:53, 29 June 2007 (UTC) KeplerNiko


Although "reefer" is shorthand for "refrigerated," containers that maintain cargo at a temperature above "normal" temperatures are also called reefers. I recently saw booking information for a container to be shipped at 85 degrees Celsius, and it was classified as a reefer. -- 01:53, 29 June 2007 (UTC) KeplerNiko


Information (internal and external dimensions, empty weight, max gross weight etc) about the most common types of reefers is needed here. Amit Upadhyay 13:45, 24 March 2016 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Qx2020 (talkcontribs)

What size doe reefers come in? internal and dexternal dimensions please. (talk) 13:42, 29 February 2008 (UTC)

Explanation of Refrigeration Technology[edit]

The information given in the article is inaccurate. I just talked to my supplier, who informed me that they use R22 (chlorodifluoromethane) and R134A (1,1,1,2-tetrafluoroethane) in most intermodal reefer containers. Not sure what the "water process" or "CO2 process" are all about. If someone in the refrigeration trade could expand this part of the article, it would be very useful.

Reefer rail transport[edit]

Information (energy source, cooling/time-constraints, double-stack on railcar feasibility) on the rail transport of reefer is needed. The reefer loading in double-stack on flat railcars in not permitted in India. Amit Upadhyay 02:06, 25 March 2016 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Qx2020 (talkcontribs)
