Transport refrigeration system natureFridgeTM
natureFridgeTM is the lowest emission, lowest noise and highest performance truck cooling system for the refrigerated trucking market. The components of the system can be grouped into five subsystems, namely:
Supply subsystem, consists of a liquid nitrogen storage tank.
Control subsystem, which consists of thermostatically operated control system that injects nitrogen as required. The operating control system is connected with temperature sensors, positioned in the interior space; these sensors allow temperature to be controlled very precisely.
Cooling subsystem is intended for two zone truck with one longitudinal and one crosswise bulkhead. Based on the temperature sensors response, the control valve regulates the precise flow of liquid nitrogen to the sprayer that releases nitrogen into the cargo space.
Safety subsystem consists of various components to ensure that humans don’t enter the cargo space when oxygen levels are low within the cargo space.
Power subsystem consists of batteries and charging system that is powered by either the truck’s engine and from an external power source.

This model is designed to be fitted on a one-compartment trailer which is up to 14 meters in length. The configuration supports a temperature range from -30C to +20C to ambient and can be completed with either a 620 liter or a 950 liter cryogenic tank for liquid nitrogen, the former providing for 26 hours of operation and the latter providing for 39 hours of operation of the refrigeration system before the tank has to be refilled.
