Brussels, Apr. 8, 2021 – Thermo King®, a leader in transport temperature control solutions and a brand of Trane Technologies, has introduced today its new Container Fresh & Frozen (CFF) refrigeration solutions for containers. The new Thermo King CFF reefers feature improved temperature and humidity control, lower total cost of ownership and comes with industry-standard R-134A low global warming potential (GWP) refrigerant. For even less environmental impact, the CFF is also ready for the R-513A drop-in refrigerant option.
“With CFF, Thermo King brings in decades of container
refrigeration knowledge acquired from the intermodal use of reefer
units on rough roads and even rougher seas,” said Peter Hansen,
product leader at Thermo King Marine, Rail and Bus. “Since the 1950s
Thermo King has been raising the bar for reefer performances,
designing solutions that last longer and better protect our
customers’ high value cargo. The CFF makes use of our proven
technology and combines it with the latest in smart, connected, and
customizable cold-chain innovations to set new standards in
The new Thermo King CFF unit features advanced temperature
management control system that delivers best-in-class, precise
temperature control of +/- 0.25 degrees Celsius in chilled mode and
+/- 1 degrees Celsius in frozen mode. For increased operational
efficiency, the CFF offers fast pull-down and can quickly reach
specific set-points to increase the storage life of shipped goods.
Additional sustainability benefits and reduction in operating cost
come from the ability to optimize the power consumption mode to
consume less energy and activate a wider temperature spread without
compromising the cargo.
The best-in-class temperature control is ensured by the proven Thermo King MP-4000 controller featuring advanced control algorithms, a faster processor and the ultraprecise PT1000 control sensors. The controller brings in the intelligence and seamless connectivity to the CFF thanks to its compatibility with a wide range of telematics solutions for both one-way and two-way communication. A built-in Remote Monitoring Module also enables the controller to interface with customers’ vessel monitoring systems.
The new Thermo King CFF reefer units includes further unique features that comprehensively address a wide range of operational challenges, including:
