Car­rier Tran­si­cold in­tro­duced XtendFRESH at­mos­phere con­trol sys­tem, which, pre­serves qual­ity and ex­tends shipping dis­tances for per­ish­ables shipped in re­frig­er­ated con­tain­ers.

Along with the com­mer­cial re­lease of the XtendFRESH, the company has also showed a video demon­stra­tion to ex­plain its op­er­a­tion and ben­e­fits.

Elab­o­rat­ing on the pre­sen­ta­tion, Ed­ward Goh, Di­rec­tor of mar­ket­ing, Global Con­tainer Re­frig­er­a­tion, Car­rier Tran­si­cold said, “This video shows the in­ge­nious en­gi­neer­ing that en­ables the XtendFRESH sys­tem to achieve some re­mark­able re­sults. By slow­ing ripen­ing, the XtendFRESH sys­tem sig­nif­i­cantly length­ens the amount of time pro­duce can spend in tran­sit, help­ing ex­porters reach new mar­kets through ex­tended shipping dis­tances.”

By help­ing to pre­vent pre­ma­ture ripen­ing, the XtendFRESH sys­tem aids in main­tain­ing op­ti­mum qual­ity of de­liv­ered pro­duce and re­duc­ing spoilage. The XtendFRESH sys­tem is de­signed to be more af­ford­able than Car­rier’s prior at­mos­phere con­trol so­lu­tions and rel­a­tively easy to in­stall on ex­ist­ing equip­ment.

The XtendFRESH sys­tem can sat­isfy at­mos­phere-con­trol needs for the majority of per­ish­able items shipped to­day, in­clud­ing ba­nanas, av­o­ca­dos, man­gos, pineap­ples, can­taloupe, ki­wifruit, peaches, plums, ap­ples and pears, to name a few.

Car­rier Tran­si­cold helps im­prove global trans­port and shipping of tem­per­a­ture-con­trolled car­goes with a com­plete line of equip­ment for re­frig­er­ated trucks, trail­ers and con­tain­ers, and is a part of UTC Build­ing & In­dus­trial Sys­tems, a unit of United Tech­nolo­gies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).

With the XtendFRESH sys­tem, O2 and CO2 lev­els can be in­de­pen­dently set to pro­vide ideal re­sults for a given com­mod­ity. The sys­tem’s abil­ity to re­move eth­yl­ene, while pre­cisely man­ag­ing O2 and CO2, is key to its per­for­mance and dis­tin­guishes it from other prod­ucts for con­tainer at­mos­phere con­trol.
