Temperature controlled transport with portable compressor coolers

The HACCP standard demands a continuous cool chain and close adherence to the limiting values defined for the “critical control points”. Even the slightest deviation from the prescribed transport temperature can have fatal consequences: food products contaminated by salmonella, precious blood donations and lab samples rendered useless, medicines made ineffective …

Portable coolers can be an economical alternative to refrigerated vehicles

On the other hand, though, it’s not always financially viable to invest in a fully equipped refrigerated vehicle. For smaller cargo volumes, CoolFreeze portable compressor coolers by WAECO provide a genuine alternative. Eight models, ranging in size from 18 to 136 litres, offer a wide choice of safe and economical transport options.

Deep freezing up to –18°C

CoolFreeze compressor coolers represent state-of-the-art technology. Equipped with a Danfoss compressor, they guarantee reliable cooling from –18 to +10°C. The desired temperature can be set in five-degree steps by pressing a key on the soft-touch operating panel. The CoolFreeze FR-145 jumbo cooler, by contrast, has a digital thermostat which allows continuous temperature regulation from 0 to 12°C.
All portable coolers smaller than the CoolFreeze FR-145 provide the benefits of CF special electronics. A three-stage battery monitor maintains the car battery’s starting ability when the cooler is operated in the 12- or 24-volt mode. At the same time, it ensures a stable cooling temperature inside the box.

Mobility and custom design

Mobility is another argument in favour of portable coolers. When a box is not needed in the vehicle, it can be used as a stand-by fridge in shops or laboratories. The variable power supply makes this possible. CoolFreeze coolers are ready for connection to 12/24 volts DC and 110 to 240 volts AC.
WAECO also offers customised CoolFreeze coolers. These coolers feature an electronic thermostat that maintains a given temperature (between –18 and +8°C) at a tolerance of ± 2 degrees. Depending on the customer’s needs, the temperature can be preset in the factory or left variable. WAECO offers a wide choice of extra modules for portable custom coolers. These include a digital radio thermometer, temperature readout on the dashboard, a data logger with documentation software, and an extra heater for accurate temperature management when outside temperatures are below zero.
All CoolFreeze coolers are extremely robust, with sturdy carrying handles. This makes them just right for the rigours of transport use. For more information, please refer to our catalogue „Professional Cooling on the Move“, which can be ordered by
