uses cryogenic fluid
Jun 3, 2009 10:03 AM
Reflect Scientific Inc has received an order for its cooling system for use in overland refrigerated trucks and in the broader transportation industry. The new system deploys a cryogenic fluid as the cooling medium and is specifically configured as a direct replacement for older mechanical-style units.
“Existing units are problematic with respect to emissions of fine particulates, carbon dioxide, and noise. The Cryometrix system offers a lower-cost clean-tech alternative that avoids the use of diesel fuel, emits no regulated emissions, and provides users with a low-maintenance, quiet, environmentally friendly operation,” said Kim Boyce, president and chief executive officer of Reflect Scientific.
“Cold chain management is now becoming a major focus for the company,” he said. “There are reported to be approximately 350,000 reefer trucks in operation within the United States, so this represents a significant opportunity for our business as well as providing this industry with a clean renewable alternate energy source that alleviates the need for consumption of diesel fuel and its associated carbon footprint.”
Cryometrix, a wholly owned subsidiary of Reflect Scientific, develops, manufactures, and markets refrigeration and cryogenic preservation equipment for the biotechnology, pharmaceutical, and transportation industries. For more information, go to www.cryometrix.com or www.reflectscientific.com.
