R25 -- Cargo Containers, Rail Cars, Trailers, and Trucks - (SI)


ASHRAE / 2010 / 12 pages ISBN: 9781933742823

Transport of commodities may be as simple as direct delivery of fresh vegetables from garden to market in a wagon. How-ever, travel time, ambient temperature, and risk of spoilage often make temperature-controlled transport necessary. Because some commodities are sensitive to the relative humidity and chemical composition of their surrounding atmosphere, these conditions may also need to be controlled. Today many commodities travel to distant markets intermodally (i.e., by some combination of highway, ocean, and railroad). This chapter discusses the vehicles, equip-ment, and related factors that combine to preserve temperature-sensitive commodities as they travel. Users are urged to regard the vehicle and its equipment as a system, particularly when making insulation and equipment sizing decisions. Chapter Table of ContentsVehicles
