FRANKLIN, Mass., Oct. 9, 2019 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — RYPOS, Inc., developer, and manufacturer of advanced, exhaust filtration systems is pleased to announce the successful completion of the application engineering effort to fit their standard Ultra Low Emission Transport Refrigeration Unit Filter system to the CarrierX4 and Thermoking C650 series refrigeration units. These models use a less than 25 horsepower engine that has a seven-year emission compliance life in California. The application of the Rypos filter will extend their compliance to the end of life.
The nationwide growth in demand for fresher foods has contributed to a boom in the refrigerated transportation sector. But tighter food-handling standards and emission regulations are limiting the load flexibility and utilization options that carriers may have had in the past while driving significantly higher equipment and operating costs.
The challenge refrigerated carriers face, industry executives said, is to use the newer trailers and technologies available today to maximize utilization and load flexibility within the constraints of the cold chain and emission regulations.
“The need for temperature-control transportation is a growing trend in the United States,” said Mark Domzalski, senior vice president of sales and operations with Newark, N.J-based PLM Trailer Leasing. Legislation and activities involving the Food Safety Modernization Act “are requiring more stringent measures of control for the transport of food across the U.S.”
