Klinge Corporation will be exhibiting at Transport Logistic, leading trade fair for logistics, mobility, IT, and supply chain management. The event will be held from 9 – 12 May 2017.
Klinge Corporation has launched a new website to highlight their new transport freezer and refrigeration containers. The site features a special focus on industry specific needs so that customers can view the options available for their specific needs. These industries include pharmaceutical/medical, military, chemical/dangerous goods, bulk liquids, offshore oil & gas, and seafood & meat processing.
Klinge Corporation will be exhibiting at Logipharma, Europe’s leading Pharma Supply Chain event held in Montreux Switzerland. Each year, thousands of supply chain professionals from the top pharma, generics and animal health companies attend the event to hear high-quality presentations from top professionals in the industry, assess the latest trends, learn ways to address supply chain challenges, and discover new innovations.
An article on Klinge Corporation was recently featured in World Cargo News, the world's leading resource for international cargo professionals. Text of the article is below:
Klinge Corporation will deliver a “Container Blast Freezer Unit” (CBU) capable of holding a temperature of -60 degC (-76 degF) to the Ministry of Marine and Fisheries of Indonesia. The equipment is being supplied by Klinge’s local partner, PT Waisity Indonesia for the Fishermen Empowerment project, and will be used to keep sushi-grade tuna at its required temperature.
Klinge will supply its CBU-30 unit, designed for quickly freezing cargo down to -60 degC. “Blast freezing tuna and other high-value fish to an ultra- low temperature of -60 degC substantially reduces transportation costs, as the fish can be transported by container ship, rather than being air freighted. It also al- lows for long-term storage of the tuna, so customers can purchase as needed and no tuna is wasted. Tests have also shown that shelf-life is increased when tuna is frozen to -60 degC and thawed, at a time of the customer’s choosing, in a controlled environment,” Klinge said in a statement.
The Blast Freezer features a two-step refrigerant system, with a high-temperature side with two compressors operating on R134a, and a low-temperature side with a single compressor operating on R23. The high-temperature system cools the condenser for the low-temperature system.
The CBU can be set to achieve the desired temperature in either a 12 or 24- hour cycle, during which time it main- tains the air supply at between -30 degC and -65 degC, depending on the cargo capacity. Klinge’s design features a special evaporator fan that maintains full airflow, even when the cargo load has high internal pressure drop, and an adjustable ceiling to provide efficient airflow control by ensuring the maximum airflow is pulled across the cargo at the optimum height.
Klinge Corporation has delivered their Container Blast Freezer Unit Model CBU- 30 to the Ministry of Marine and Fisheries of Indonesia (through PT Waisity Indonesia) for the Fishermen Empowerment project. The CBU-30 is designed for quickly freezing cargo down to -60°C (-76°F). The Ministry will be using the Blast Freezer to keep sashimi/sushi-grade tuna at their required temperature.
Mr. Allan Klinge, Klinge Corporation President was selected as a panelist at ExporTech™ to discuss the following. ExporTech™ is an export assistance program offered by the NIST Manufacturing Extension Partnership and the U.S. Export Assistance Centers of the U.S. Department of Commerce. The program provides companies with guidance on entering or expanding in global markets. The event was held on December 6, 2016.
Klinge Corporation will be attending the world’s leading intermodal/container event, Intermodal Europe. Held in Rotterdam this year, the exhibition and conference will cover all areas of container transport and logistics across road, rail and sea.
Advanced engineering brings powered, active control of temperature-sensitive shipments via ocean containers. Supply chain managers in life sciences, and their freight-forwarding logistics partners, look endlessly for cost-saving measures to provide more economical transportation. Counterpoised against that driver, however, is the need for high-quality, validated processes for ensuring the safety and efficacy of life-saving biopharma products.
On Thursday, September 29, Klinge Corporation cconducted a demonstration of their Global Monitoring System (GSM) remote monitoring system with optional satellite back-up at the Cold Chain Global Forum. The system is used in particular on their special Dual Redundant Refrigerated Containers which feature two refrigeration units with automatic switchover. Total redundancy prevents temperature deviations of cold chain supplies.
