When should a vehicle refrigeration unit be brought down to temperature?

Refrigerated vehicles are not designed to bring food down to temperature, only to maintain a temperature. If you load products at 18ºC in the hope that they’ll be brought down to 8ºC, it won’t happen. The unit will think it needs to defrost and just keep kicking into that cycle until the products are removed.

What is the proper temperature for a refrigerated delivery truck?

Here are general guidelines to consider for reefer truck temperature ranges: 32˚F – 36˚F: greens, berries, apples, cruciferous vegetables, grapes, stone fruits. 38˚F – 40˚F: avocadoes, cranberries. 40˚F – 45˚F: potatoes, green beans, sweet potatoes.

How does transport refrigeration work?

This mechanism uses air from outside and forces it through the compressed gas, which cools the gas down enough to return to its previous state while jettisoning heat energy back outside. Once this has occurred, the gas is returned to the condenser and the cycle restarts.

What is the maximum legal temperature for chilled foods?

By law the temperature of chilled food must always be 8°C or below. If you have any doubts about the reliability of your fridge you should check the temperature of the food stored in the fridge using a clean digital probe thermometer.

What is the very first reason why transport refrigeration was made?

The first rudimentary version of refrigerated transportation was born in the 1800s, when cargo transporters would place ice and salt below temperature-sensitive goods in train cars. This process was horribly inefficient and inevitably led to major losses in the value of goods and profitability.

What temperature should chilled foods be when they are delivered?

According to the FDA, freezers should be kept at 0°F (-18°C). Therefore, this is the optimal temperature your food should be stored at. When shipping, frozen food must be kept at 0°F air temperature while the internal product temperature should never exceed 10 0°F.
