Carrier Transicold China’s new Citimax™ 280 and 400 series transport refrigeration units are making their debut at SIAL China 2018. These new refrigeration solutions – specifically designed for fresh or frozen goods in small-to-medium sized delivery vehicles – help maintain cold chain integrity to ensure temperature-sensitive cargo is delivered in ideal condition. Carrier Transicold China is a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).

“With the Chinese government emphasizing the importance of food safety, the expansion of the Belt and Road Initiative, and the emergence of the new e-commerce food retail model, the demand for reliable cold chain transportation is growing fast,” said Cynthia Lu, managing director, Carrier Transicold China. “We are committed to providing our customers a full range of transport refrigeration solutions using advanced cold chain equipment and technology, with outstanding after-sales service.”

Features of the new Citimax 280 and 400 series direct drive units include:

  • a new filter-drier-receiver that reduces the risk of ice block and ensures accurate refrigerant charging
  • hydrophilic fins that reduce water splash, increasing food safety
  • accurate defrost control to ensure stable box temperature for optimal performance
