DEBATING DIRECT EXPANSION REEFER PLANT OPTIONS

Preventing the dehydration of fruit on board reefer ships is a major challenge. Different approaches to the design of reefer plants are in evidence, and there is a debate in progress amongst equipment manufacturers as to the most effective design principles where shipboard direct expansion-based reefer plants are concerned. The debate centres effectively on whether or not to have back pressure regulator valves on the air coolers.
