Many industries ship products, parts, and materials that must be kept within a precise temperature range during transit. These include:

  • Food and beverage: It is essential that seafood, as well as fresh, processed, and frozen meat products, are kept within a specific temperature range. Improper temperature control can create ideal conditions for food-borne pathogens, which opens your organization to product loss, fines and liability issues, and reputational damage. For these reasons, the U.S. Food Safety Modernization Act outlines strict guidelines for shippers, receivers, loaders, and carriers who deal with perishable foods. Our products are essential to meeting your legal requirements and managing risk across the supply chain.
  • Pharmaceutical: Vaccines are just one of the many pharmaceutical products that require transportation in refrigerated trucks. Each year, an estimated $300 million worth of vaccines are destroyed as a result of improper storage. Klinge Corporation refrigeration units are designed to meet international standards for temperature control. Our dual redundant products provide peace of mind and performance you can count on at all stages of the cold chain.
  • Military: Food, medicine, and supplies used by the military are governed by strict regulations concerning transport and storage. Maintaining stable temperatures is essential, particularly when working in hot climates where access to proper refrigeration is unreliable. Both U.S. and international armed forces, as well as government contractors and non-governmental agencies, use our refrigeration units. We can customize any product to your exact specifications.

Other potential applications include oil and gas, chemical processing, and general manufacturing. Whatever the task, count on Klinge Corporation for some of the most reliable, compact, and sophisticated products on the market today.
