Maintaining the proper temperature and quality of perishable produce during transport is one of the most important factors in the cold food chain. Refrigerated transport logistics must comply with stringent regulations to ensure that produce is delivered in fresh condition.
Temperature, pressure and humidity must be kept under control with reliable devices that are simple to manage. Dixell is a leading refrigeration controls provider. Dixell’s electronic refrigeration controllers are exclusively distributed by Heatcraft Australia , throughout their wholesale branch network.
Featuring the latest generation of internal electronic micro-processors, the Dixell range delivers excellent performance and durability. Their Transport Electronic Controllers have been designed and built especially to suit harsh Australian conditions.
The XR Auto series allows 12–24V applications, while the broader XW wing series features 7–40V applications and multi-zone controlling at low, medium or high temperatures. The end result is highly effective energy management, as a result of an efficient compressor, fan control and optimum defrost cycle management.
An important feature of Dixell refrigeration controllers is their ‘Hot Key’ - a programmable operations key that offers the simplicity of single action programming for multiple vehicles (such as a fleet of trucks, which can be easily controlled by preset keys). It also has the option of multiple keys for differing refrigeration zones or types of produce.
To help you maintain your refrigeration system in good working order, there is an inbuilt service hour counter on the medium and low temperature wing controllers. Combining that with the alarmed maximum and minimum temperature recording will help you to maintain the freshness of the goods being transported.
