Klinge Corporation will be exhibiting at the Council on Safe Transportation of Hazardous Articles (COSTHA) Annual Forum later this month. The company will be educating participants on how its dual refrigeration systems comply with UN regulations on the transport of certain dangerous goods.
At the forum held in San Diego, California, participants will learn from industry experts about dangerous goods transport requirements. They will also be able to attend a number of industry roundtables, gain advance notification of changes to domestic and international regulations and network with peers. The event will be held from 21 to 24 April and will also allow attendees to visit exhibits of the latest innovations in the dangerous goods transport industry.
Established in 1972, COSTHA promotes regulatory compliance in the transport of dangerous goods. The association provides members with the resources needed to stay up to date on regulatory trends and practices and helps them understand the potential impact for their companies.
Klinge showcasing new and improved dual refrigeration system
Klinge Corp joins nearly 30 leading suppliers in the hazardous materials/dangerous goods industry to showcase their latest innovations. Klinge Corp will be featuring their new and improved dual refrigeration system which is used by transport companies and major chemical companies around the world to transport dangerous goods.
Klinge’s dual refrigeration system has two full-capacity reefer units. The reefer unit automatically switches to its backup in the case of a loss of performance, to provide the ultimate peace of mind when shipping dangerous cargo.
The dual refrigerated container system also includes an integral generator set to ensure complete and independent protection of the cargo. The self-powered generator set powers the refrigeration units in case of the loss of external power supply during vehicular transport.
The new and improved system features two independent motor housings (rather than the current dual-wound motor) as well as additional security measures for locking out unauthorised users and preventing access to the control box without the necessary tools. In addition, a new, higher-efficiency evaporator and condenser coils are utilized as well, as an option for remote monitoring of the equipment via satellite, GSM or direct cable link to the control box.
Dual reefer systems meets international regulations for transport of self-reactive substances and organic peroxides
Klinge Corporation’s dual refrigeration system complies with the International Maritime Organization’s transport requirements for IMDG Class 4.1 – Self Reactive Substances – and IMDG Class 5.2 – Organic Peroxides.
The International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code (IMDG) was established as an international guideline for safe transport and shipment of dangerous goods or hazardous materials on seagoing vessels. The International Maritime Organisation stipulates that the temperature of certain organic peroxides and self-reactive substances are to be controlled in redundant refrigerated units with a backup generator set.
Klinge Corp’s dual refrigerated container with twin refrigeration units, integral power supply, explosion-proof fittings, temperature measurement and easy access meets the requirements outlined in the IMDG code for class 5.2 organic peroxides and 4.1 self-reactive substances.
For nearly 30 years, Klinge Corp has provided dual refrigerated containers to leading companies in the chemical and pharmaceutical industry. The dual systems have been used to transport chemicals, ice core samples and other temperature-sensitive or highly-valuable cargo.
