Cooling specialists Greencold has taken its refrigerated trailers to a larger specification to accommodate the needs of an established multi-national UK food manufacturer.

Capable of accommodating five standard sized pallets end to end with a total static payload of 2600kg and a capacity to reach -20°C, the upscale follows on from the success of Greencold’s Quickfreezer rental tailer which is equipped with a Panasonic CO2 Cold Chain Condenser unit.

On both the large and small trailer, the Panasonic Cold Chain CO2 units used are compact, lightweight, have low noise levels and are designed to fit into smaller spaces with dimensions of (HWD) 930mm x 800mm x 350mm and weighs 67kg. 

Simon Andrew, Director of Greencold commented “We originally worked with Panasonic on a solution for our smaller QuickFreeze trailer in 2019 where we were impressed with the support and output of the units.”

“We use the trailer as a cold-room test facility and mobile refrigeration unit. The trailer allows us to easily conduct onsite tests for customer products to show chill and freeze temperatures, in addition to also allowing more capacity at our own site that doesn’t take up workshop space at HQ.”

“It was because of the original trailer and the natural refrigerant CO2 being used on the Panasonic cold chain units, that our client, Cranswick Convenience Foods MK, a multi-national food manufacturer, asked if they could purchase a larger trailer that could be fitted with the same Panasonic cold chain units.”

The natural refrigerant of CO2 used in the condensing units has a GWP (Global Warming Potential) equal to 1 as opposed to the current refrigerant typically used such as R404A having a GWP equal to 3,800.

Paul Taylor, UK Sales Manager for Panasonic UK, commented, “It’s great to see our units being used for mobile refrigeration logistic requirements and proving themselves on the larger trailers. The Panasonic CO2 units already have an impressive track record for reliability and efficiency with a clever single two stage temperature compression condensing unit and of compact size”.
