Maximize cooling efficiency

Reduce temperature differences inside containers with OTFLOW®

Normal air flow

The cold air from the cooling unit is not being distributed to all corners of the container. This creates hot spots that increase the respiration rate of the fruit.

Air flow with OTFLOW®

With OTFLOW installed underneath the pallets the cold air reaches all corners, eliminating all hot spots that can harm the precious cargo during transport.
