Refrigeration Unit

Klinge Corp’s Tank Container Refrigeration Unit, Model TCR-109, heats and cools the tank’s cargo by circulating brine or synthetic oil around external cooling coils in the tank. The unit is designed so the mechanical section fits on the side of the container and the electrical control box is at the end of the container where it is easily accessible when stacked at a terminal or onboard vessels. Contact a Klinge Group Specialist Today!
