Tips for the Maintenance of Your Van Refrigeration Units
The refrigeration unit is the heart of a refrigerated van. The working condition of the refrigeration unit has a direct bearing on the successful delivery of temperature-sensitive cargoes. Frequent little checks and maintenance could save you a big amount of loss caused by machine breakdown and cargo damage. Now, here are some useful tips for you to maintain your van refrigeration unit.
1. There are three parts that should be checked often in your van reefer unit: battery, starter, and alternator. These three parts are used often and worn quickly, the number of stops and starts of your van refrigeration unit can influence their duration. Besides constant check and maintenance, you can install a standby system for your van refrigeration unit. Kingclima’s van refrigeration unit with a built-in standby system can not only help you prolong the life of the battery, starter, and alternator but also save your energy for the standby system can work independently when parked.
2. Heed details such as air, fuel, filter. Test your van refrigeration unit often to make sure it runs in good condition. Sometimes the cracks on your van box, fuel tank, and filter are easy to be ignored and could undermine your delivery. Moreover, inspect the hardware often. The fault of doors, tires and other hardware is fatal and easy to be overlooked. Check your van reefer unit constantly to avoid breakdown amid the trip, and don’t let details ruin your delivery.
3. Clean your condenser, air channel, and evaporator regularly. These components are pivotal and easy to be inserted, so keep them clean to prevent overheating. It is worth noting that these three parts are fragile, so you should be careful when doing the cleaning. Better clean your condenser once each season and air channel and evaporator once a month.

How to Use a Refrigerated Van Correctly
Refrigerated vans are specifically applied to the transportation and preservation of temperature-sensitive products, and the security of temperature is the key to refrigerated vans. If used or operated improperly, can lead to the damage of the cargo. So how to use the reefer van and van refrigeration unit correctly to avoid the risks associated with improper use?
Before loading, it is necessary to pre-cool or pre-heat the carriage of the refrigerated van for an hour or so. Because the vehicle is parked in the open air, usually the car temperature is the temperature of the outside environment, the goods loaded into the car, the ambient temperature in the car will affect the temperature of the goods delivered, resulting in changes in the quality of the goods delivered, so before loading the refrigerated car must be pre-cooled to the required temperature.
Appropriate packaging is essential to protect the goods. Such as frozen goods, should be used without ventilation of the packing box. Because the wind blowing across the surface of frozen goods, will make the loss of moisture in the goods, thus leading to a decline in the quality of goods. For fresh goods, it is necessary to use sidewall ventilation of the packaging box. Fresh goods, due to their own characteristics, in the process of storage and transportation, need to be in a breathing state, if not well ventilated, the goods will deteriorate and damage.
The refrigeration unit must be turned off when loading and unloading goods. Many people do not close the refrigerated van refrigeration unit when loading and unloading goods, which is a very wrong operation, the principle is: when the carriage is pre-cooling, if not close the refrigeration unit, open the carriage door, because the refrigeration unit evaporator fan is working, the front of the fan is positive pressure, the back is negative pressure, so the cold air from the upper part of the carriage blowing out, and the lower part will be outside the hot air quickly sucked in, resulting in The temperature inside the refrigerated carriage rises rapidly; if the refrigeration unit is closed and then loading and unloading goods, the airflow stops because the fan is in a stop state, and the wind pressure inside and outside the refrigerated carriage is consistent, thus making the speed of external hot air transfer into the carriage relatively slow.
The use of refrigerated vans should keep the carriage floor clean. Due to the role of the evaporator fan, the air will circulate in the carriage, resulting in the ground debris or dirty things being inhaled by the evaporator fan. The role of a long time, will make a large number of impurities inhaled into the evaporator coil, thus affecting the refrigeration effect of the refrigerated van refrigeration unit.
When loading, do not pile the goods too high, must ensure that the loading height is lower than the plane position of the air outlet. If the refrigerated van air outlet in front of the goods is blocked or too close to the goods, will not only affect the transport temperature of the goods but also affect the normal work of the refrigeration unit. Because if the air outlet is blocked by the goods, the cold air can not be normal circulation in the car, will make the temperature of the goods rise. On the other hand, some of the refrigerated van refrigeration units’ defrost design is the use of cold air induction defrost, if the blockage of the air outlet, will make the defrost effect becomes inefficient.
Refrigerated Van Boxes Maintenance
If the refrigeration unit is the heart of a refrigerated van, the box body is the bone of it. To maintain a continuous temperature is as important as to cool the cargo box at a precise temperature.
A good refrigerated box body for vans and trucks is made of fiberglass and sandwich panels.
Generally speaking, the daily maintenance of the refrigerated car insulation compartment is the inspection of the outer surface of the compartment, the inspection of the inner surface of the compartment, the inspection of the internal and external corners of the compartment, the inspection of the internal floor of the compartment, and the internal lighting, refrigeration vents, etc.
First, for the outer surface of the refrigerated box, try not to make any scraping, which on the one hand reduces the anti-pressure ability of FRP, on the other hand, will make the internal polyurethane layer leak and thus reduce the insulation performance of the refrigerated van box.
Second, For the maintenance of the inner side of the refrigerated box, do not make the internal surface frozen, control the temperature in a suitable range. If the air humidity is relatively high, try to pack good refrigerated products, especially aquatic products, pack your good to reduce the evaporation of water to the interior of the refrigerated box. If the inner surface of your refrigerated box has been frozen, try to clean the ice with a de-icing shovel in a timely manner. Ice layers not only will affect the storage space of the compartment, but also increase the weight of the vehicle, and fuel consumption.
Last but not least, the maintenance of the internal electrical equipment. The electrical equipment of the refrigerated van box is in a relatively high humidity, low-temperature environment. Drivers should prevent the occurrence of various short circuits caused by exposed power lines and unnecessary damage due to the lighting equipment overheating.
WHY CHOOSE A REFRIGERATED VAN?
With the rapid development of cold china transport, people require more and more environmental protection, in many countries logistics trucks are not allowed to enter the city.
