Conventional systems blow cold air into the cargo area. As soon as the temperature in the cargo area is rising, the system is activated to produce cold air. This requires an active and dedicated energy source such as a diesel generator.
Our system uses a PCM-compound. The Beams or Battery are electrically charged using a refrigeration unit, and radiate cold during the trip. The temperature of the cargo is secured without requiring additional energy during transport.
The system does not emit CO2, eliminates noise pollution, requires low maintenance and has no hidden costs. Our systems do not leak, because we are using a specific compound, contrary to our competitors who offer plates with liquid PCM.
Our products are standard solutions that are custom-made for you.
Most of the standard items are in stock. We fit them easily to your specifications and have them available for shipment within 24 hours. Our custom-made products have a delivery time of six to eight weeks.
Our prices are comparable to traditional refrigeration systems.
Please contact us. After an inventory of your needs we sent you an informal offer.
Our system has only a few moving parts, therefore it hardly requires maintenance. Our technical specialists are always at your service. For first time buyers we offer on-the-job training.
No, we are fully dedicated to our PCM technology.
PCM stands for Phase Change Material. Such materials can absorb considerable amounts of heat when they transition from a solid frozen state to a liquid state. As soon as the material has been cooled to the prefered temperature, heat gets absorbed in an insulated space and the temperature becomes controllable. This is a natural process in physics and does not require any additional energy input.
The material consists of a water-based compound containing particular components. We manufacture these components according to a well-kept recipe.
This compound has an exceptionally high absorption capacity per liter of product, it is very stable and does not decay, not even over time, and there is no risk for leakages because the viscosity is very high.
Our system does not use circulating air which means your products can not dry out.
Freezing and thawing plates causes the edges to weaken which ultimately results in leaks.
Our Beams have proven to be very robust. There are still BoTemp systems in use, functioning even after twenty years. Beams also weigh less and have a larger heat exchange surface which results in faster temperature dropping.
A Beam weighs approximately 9 kg and contains 4.53 liters of PCM material refrigeration solution 500 Wh per meter. For example, a Beams application in a small 3.5-ton vehicle weighs approximately 400 kg and in a large trailer 900kg.
A Battery application in a small 3.5-ton vehicle weighs approximately 400 kg, and in a large trailer 900 kg.
An On Board Refrigeration Unit weighs between 150 and 280 kg and a Remote Cold Charger weighs between 200 and 380 kg. Exact weights are depending on your application.
The BoTemp Battery offers variable temperature settings allowing you the possibility to change the temperature in the cargo area from +10ºC to -25ºC.
Our Beams as well as our Battery can be used in cargo areas with two or more compartments, a so-called multi-temp system. If you select the Battery, each compartment’s temperature can be set at a different temperature at any time.
If you select the Remote Cold Charger, the refrigeration unit will remain at the home base. Comparatively, the Battery is lighter than the Beams because the Battery is well-insulated and does not automatically radiate cold. As a result, less energy is lost than with a saturation control, and there is less need of PCM compound.
Depending on the size of your system, the charging time is between three and eight hours. When using our External Nitrogen Charger, charging time is only two hours.
The air we breathe contains approximately 80% nitrogen. When nitrogen changes from a liquid to a gas, the amount of oxygen can become less, and should therefore not be used in confined spaces. Direct contact with the skin should be avoided because of the extreme low temperature.
Our systems do not emit any pollutants or noise when in use and get charged with electricity or liquid nitrogen. Since there aren’t any harmful coolants inside the vehicle, Freon certification is not required.
Yes, there aren’t any size restrictions. We have systems from small vehicles like a tuk-tuk to large trucks or containers.
Our PCM can be created to radiate temperatures between +50ºC and -40ºC.
control the temperature of such spaces.
Yes, we offer solutions for cold stores, data centers, and other applications such as air conditioning for residences, offices, and stores.
’The consumption is estimated to be approximately € 500 per year. This is 50% less than similar diesel powered systems.
