BlueSeal – die Extrameile für Elektro-Kühltransporter dank der Vermeidung von Energieverlusten

Die Entwicklung vollelektrischer Kühlfahrzeuge hat diesen Jahr einen großen Sprung nach vorn gemacht. Diskussionen drehen sich jedoch weiterhin um eine längere Batterielebensdauer und leichtere Fahrzeuge. Daher stellt Brightec die Frage, ob Hersteller genug tun, um den Energieverlust bei Elektro-Kühltransportern während der Türöffnungen zu kontrollieren?

How BlueSeal air curtains can help transport your pharmaceuticals safely

One of the biggest risk factors in transporting pharmaceuticals is the temperature change products face during transit. Maintaining a controlled temperature chain is critical in transporting pharmaceuticals, many of which must be kept within very strict temperature limits to avoid affecting the chemical stability of products.

The advantage of the BlueSeal air curtain in a vehicle with two and three rear doors

In this simulation experiment we are examining the effectiveness of BlueSeal where goods will be exposed to varying levels of outside temperature when different combinations of rear doors are opened. For three examples we are considering situations where goods will be loaded/unloaded from vehicles in a 7.5 metre truck to test how BlueSeal’s performance differs in a real-world scenario.

Creating the most effective climate barrier: how higher air speeds are counterproductive for air curtains

Creating the most efficient airflow for vehicle air curtains is a subject shrouded in misconceptions that is a little more complicated than one might assume. For example, you would intuitively assume that a higher speed of air flow would improve the performance of an air curtain. In actual fact, when the speed of the air flow is too high, the performance of an air curtain drops.
