ColdShield temperature control
system has special foaming system
Dec 13, 2009 1:03 PM
A critical component of ColdShield is a state-of-the-art foaming system that improves cavity filling in floors, walls, and ceilings. This enables Kidron trailers and truck bodies to protect refrigerated products by holding cold temperatures longer and more precisely, and recovering faster after frequent door openings.
Kidronís plant in Montgomery PA has undergone a $3 million upgrade program involving expansion, manufacturing refinements, and system enhancements. To increase Kidronís unit manufacturing capacity, two 6,000-gallon chemical tanks have been installed, along with a precise temperature control system, transfer pumps, and pipe loop to production machines. The system is also integrated into the plantís computer network to enable careful monitoring. Featuring pre-engineered shot times, it will alert operators if the temperature, mix, or ratio of its constituent chemicals moves outside the acceptable range.
Developed in conjunction with Hennecke Inc, the foaming process involves high-pressure impingement mixing. Resulting benefits include precise control of mix, ratio, optimum temperature, shot size, and cavity fill in every Kidron body and trailer. Data collection is greatly enhanced, providing accurate data to ensure consistent quality of the products.
