How many hours can the service last with a body with eutectic plates?

The first time that the body is connected to the electric plant, the unit must run for at least twenty hours in order to obtain the total solidification of the eutectic solution, while for the recharge between a service and the other 6 to 8 hours are enough.

How long does the “recharging” of the plates last?

The first time that the body is connected to the electric plant, the unit must run for at least twenty hours in order to obtain the total solidification of the eutectic solution, while for the recharge between a service and the other 6 to 8 hours are enough.

Which temperatures do we have inside the bodies?

After the recharge period, if the unit was stopped by the thermostat, the ambient temperature inside the body is of about –33°C. Consequently the delivery service starts with such a temperature, when going back to the deposit after the tour the inside temperature is of about -20°C.

Which products can be delivered by a refrigerated body with eutectic plates?

The low temperature (-33°C) eutectic refrigerated bodies are the ideal way to deliver ice cream, frozen vegetables and meats, frozen pastries and frozen ready dishes. The refrigerated bodies at positive temperature (0/+4°C) can be used for the delivery of dairy products, meat, fresh pastries, juices, etc.

A refrigerated body with eutectic plates can be used only to deliver ice cream?

No, when the body is studied we can foresee to produce a body with two or more operating temperatures: the body will be divided in different compartments that will have a fixed temperature (low at –33°C, positive at 0/+4°C or isothermal i.e. without refrigeration).

Do the bodies with eutectic plates need a lot of maintenance?

From a comparative study with blown air refrigerating units (like Carrier o Thermo King) we have learnt that the refrigerated bodies with eutectic plates need up to 60% less maintenance than the blown air type systems.

Are the eutectic bodies polluting?

During the delivery service the unit is not running consequently there are no polluting emissions, the refrigerating plant is studied in order to have high output during the recharging period so to have low electric consumption. The high insulating capacity of the body reduces the cold dispersion, and consequently the recharging period is shorter. Cold Car is very sensitive to ecology that is why there are important studies to improve the body from the ecologic point of view.

To produce a special body is it necessary to send the receiving chassis cab to Cold Car?

No, our technical department is able to produce the body only by having the technical drawing of the chassis cab with the indication of the brand, model and wheelbase.

Is it very complicated to install the body on the receiving chassis cab?

The bodies are always equipped with a sub-frame that matches to the chassis cab’s frame, consequently the fitting operation is quite simple. It is necessary a crane to lift the body and after having placed the body on the chassis cab is necessary only to tighten the connecting bolts and connect the electric cables to the switch of the inner lights.
