Carrier shows its NaturaLine

Amsterdam, Netherlands:  Carrier Transicold is showed its NaturaLine natural refrigerant container unit at the Intermodal Europe. Currently in sea trials, the NaturaLine units have been performing at predicted levels, proving the practicality of a natural refrigerant-based system for high-efficiency marine applications, Carrier says.

NaturaLine units use carbon dioxide (CO2) as its refrigerant

“To date, NaturaLine sea trial units have logged hundreds of thousands of nautical miles and tens of thousands of service hours for customers, successfully delivering a wide spectrum of products, including Caribbean-grown bananas, Belgian beer, European wines, cookie dough, ice cream, meats and cheeses. The units have been operating over temperature set points ranging from -22 degrees Celsius to 13 degrees Celsius on Atlantic and Pacific routes ranging from four to 29 days. More sea trial units will be deployed over the next several months.” the company says.

NaturaLine units use carbon dioxide (CO2) as its refrigerant validated by UL Environment as having a 95% recyclability rate, joining Carrier’s PrimeLone  as the only container refrigeration units to achieve recyclability validation, Carrier says.

“Carrier’s natural leadership in refrigeration technologies provides marine and intermodal shipping operations with an unprecedented opportunity to further improve their environmental stewardship,” said David Appel, president, Carrier Transicold.

“Along with the PrimeLine unit, the NaturaLine unit leverages environmental technologies to consume less energy over its expected life compared to our previous equipment, reduce overall operating costs and increase the recyclability of its components when they reach the end of their useful life.”
