How does a Refrigerated Truck Work?

You may have seen many types of Refrigerated Trucks or Vans on our busy roads, but have you ever wondered how absolutely-vital it is for the food to be delivered at its optimal temperature?

There are many types of Refrigerated Trucks, Utes & Vans available and the core purpose is to ensure the food is delivered unspoilt. And in-order-to achieve this, it is important for the compressor within the Refrigerated Truck or Van to run correctly.

The compressor functions by drawing in gaseous refrigerant and then it compresses it. The pressure inside the compressor liquefies the gas and the liquid refrigerant gives off heat to the body of the compressor and the surrounding air. Then the refrigerant that has now released most of its heat to the condenser has now turned into a cool liquid.

It is then up to the insulated panels of the Refrigerated Truck to be water tight, to ensure no cool air can escape. To achieve this, the cool room panels are made from the very best in heavy duty frames and insulation materials, which can withstand temperatures within the cabin of up to -20 degrees. The Refrigerated Truck and Vans are built for chilling, freezing or split-temperature transport to ensure perishable goods stay fresh at the time of delivery.

Refrigerated Trucks come in a variety of applications, such as:

  • Refrigerated Pantechs
  • Refrigerated Utes
  • Refrigerated Vans

Refrigerated Trucks & Vans come in a variety of sizes to cater for small to large payloads, from 2-Pallet applications through to 10-Pallet Freezer Body applications.

Refrigerated Trucks can also be custom built to suit any type of business application, which may include the following features:

  • Thermal breaks on all doors
  • Fibre glass and polyurethane foam panel with internal ribbing
  • Steel sub-frame
  • LED Interior lights including internal switch

  • Company Branding on outer door panels

The best types of Refrigerated Trucks and Vans are the ones that ultimately deliver the perishable food unspoilt, time and time again and this is achieved by using High Grade Insulation materials in the construction. Refrigerated Trucks & Vans which are manufactured to comply with Australian Safe Food Standards, with high-quality reinforced linings, protective door lips and skirting to ensure that your cargo stays safe and cool all the time, is what sets a Refrigerated Truck Body apart from its competitors.
