By integrating the Star Cool refrigeration unit directly into the container box, we have developed an intelligently designed container solution that weighs less, carries more and consumes less energy than today’s typical container solutions, without sacrificing strength or reliability.
This effectively reduces overall weight by 100 kg compared with a MCI Box with Star Cool Unit. Weight reductions of up to 300 kg are seen when comparing to other box/unit combinations. In addition to the increased strength of the front wall, the tighter connection between the refrigeration unit and container has removed thermal bridges, improving overall energy efficiency.
In a conventional reefer, there is a high level of heat transfer via the double frames of machinery and container, indicated here by an orange line. Star Cool Integrated is specially designed to eliminate this thermal bridging, resulting in reduced heat leakage and improved energy efficiency.
