Klinge Refrigerated ISO Containers and Dual Reefer Containers for the Military Industry

Klinge Corporation is the leading provider of specialised ISO refrigerated containers. Klinge’s customised designs offer commercial and military customers robust alternatives to standard, mass-produced refrigerated containers which often cannot meet the requirements of harsh environments or stringent testing. Klinge is an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) with headquarters located in York, Pennsylvania, and an engineering and sales office located in Denmark.

Customised refrigerated army containers and shelter systems

Klinge offers a wide range of transport refrigeration units and diesel generator sets for many applications including military, disaster relief, aid missions, dangerous goods transport, and hazardous areas. Our range includes:

  • Military refrigerated containers
  • Dual refrigerated containers
  • Explosion-proof refrigerated containers
  • Refrigerated tank containers
  • Blast freezer containers
  • Deep freezer containers
  • Quick thaw containers
  • Diesel generator sets
  • Expandable containers
  • Mobile kitchens
  • Communications shelters

Military ISO refrigerated containers and reefer containers

Klinge provides a number of rugged and reliable products for military applications. Klinge’s military ISO container systems are used by military forces around the world for the transport and storage of food, medicine, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and other perishable items.

Klinge has developed specialised 10ft and 20ft refrigerated containers for armed forces around the world, including the US, Hungarian and Austrian military, as well as the Australian Defense Force (ADF) and the United Nations, for the storage and transport of food and medicine in the field.

The 10ft reefer containers can serve as a fridge or a freezer. The 20ft reefer containers with moveable bulkheads and multi-temperature refrigeration allow each section to operate at different temperatures. The 10ft and 20ft reefer containers include an integral diesel generator set for independent operation in the field or during transport on a truck.

Klinge also provides refrigerated tricons, expandable shelters, and mobile kitchens for military applications. Klinge offers 10ft and 20ft military ISO refrigerated container systems that have been designed and tested to a multitude of military tests including vibration, cooling, driving rain, and electromagnetic compatibility and interference tests. The military container systems were tested at a state of the art government test facility in Melbourne, Australia. The insulated containers used in all of Klinge’s refrigerated container systems are designed and tested in accordance with ISO 1496-2.

Redundant reefer containers for transporting dangerous goods

Klinge offers redundant, or dual, refrigerated containers for the transport of chemicals, pharmaceuticals, dangerous goods and other items requiring extra protection.

The redundant refrigerated containers have two refrigeration units (primary and back-up). The refrigeration unit automatically switches to its back-up in the case of a loss of performance or system failure to provide the ultimate peace of mind when shipping hazardous or valuable cargo.

Klinge’s redundant refrigerated containers comply with United Nations requirements for the transport of organic peroxides and self-reactive substances. The International Maritime Organisation stipulates that organic peroxides (class 5.2) and self-reactive substances (class 4.1) should be transported in dual mechanical refrigeration systems with integral generator sets, such as those provided by Klinge.

Freezer containers for transporting seafood and pharmaceuticals

Klinge provides blast freezers that quickly freezes cargo to -60°C (-76°F). Klinge also offers nose-mounted freezers that maintain cargo temperatures within 0°C to -60°C (32°F to -76°F)

Deep-frozen commodities known to benefit from being transported at -60°C include tuna, sea urchins, swordfish, and pharmaceuticals, among others. It is well documented that a significant increase in the quality of frozen fish and shellfish is achieved by blast freezing seafood to an ultra-low temperature directly after being caught.

Quick thaw container units for controlled thawing of deeply frozen cargo

Klinge’s Quick Thaw Unit (produced by Morep) stores products at their ideal process temperature with minimal manual operation. The Quick Thaw Unit is widely used to thaw high-value seafood, such as tuna, that has been deeply frozen to an optimal temperature of -60ºC (-76ºF). Tests have shown that shelf-life is increased when tuna is frozen and thawed, at a time of the customer’s choosing, in a controlled environment.

Tank container reefers

Klinge’s refrigeration unit for tank containers maintain cargo and cooling liquid temperatures of -29ºC (-20ºF) to 29ºC (84ºF). The refrigerated tank containers are used to transport liquid chemicals, pharmaceuticals, food products and beverages.

Klinge also offers spare parts for transport refrigeration equipment on a global basis. Klinge supplies competitively-priced parts for Carrier, Thermo King, Daikin, and Mitsubishi units, among others, through ReeferParts.com.

Military reefer unit for A-frame containers

The military refrigerated containers function as a freezer or refrigerator and maintain cargo between -20ºC (-4ºF) to + 20ºC (+68ºF). They contain a self-powered generator set to ensure complete and independent protection of the cargo. The special hook frame container system is equipped with integrated hydraulic rollers allowing easy loading/unloading and a manually operated hydraulic pump. The pump enables the rollers to be lowered when loading or unloading and raised when the container is stationary.

The military refrigerated container meets the requirements of mobility testing in accordance with AECTP 400 to ensure the system can withstand transportation on roads of poor quality. It also meets the requirements of radiated emission (MIL-STD-461F, RE102 and radiated susceptibility (MIL-STD-461F, RS103).
