WIRELESS MOBILE TEMPERATURE DATA LOGGER
OCEASOFT developed the Cobalt ML3 solution to meet challenges in the transport industry. Cobalt ML3, a LoRaWAN wireless mobile temperature data logger, manages traceability during product logistics phases, leveraging specialized long-range wireless technology. The Cobalt ML3 solution collects temperature data and transfers the information to a secure cloud platform via a network of receivers using the LoRaWan protocol. Cobalt ML3 can also use the public network to upload geolocation information about a container or vehicle.

TEMPERATURE DATA LOGGER FOR TRUCKS
CAS DataLoggers released SwiTrace I-Plug PDF temperature data logger, which when placed among product palettes in truck shipments, can automatically generate PDF temperature reports containing full temperature history. This data logger features start and stop buttons, traceable accuracy certificates, multi-alarms, adjustable trip duration and an online track-and-trace portal. Plus, it monitors temperatures ranging -40°F to 149°F with an encrypted 8,000-point memory capacity and a 1-year lithium battery. Users can select alarm settings and set the temperature sampling rate, for example, one reading every 10 minutes.

LIQUID DRAIN MODULE FOR ICF VALVE STATION
The ICFD Defrost Module from Danfoss is a compact liquid-based drain module packaged into Danfoss’ ICF valve station to create a state-of-the-art defrost solution for industrial refrigeration applications. The ICFD Defrost Module makes it possible to equip ICF valve stations with an evaporator across the wet suction, liquid, hot gas and defrost drain lines. The ICFD Defrost Module is fully compatible with ICF 15-4, ICF 20-4 and ICF 20-6.
Desert Aire introduced the ExpertAire LW Series of dehumidification solutions for low-temperature environments. The ExpertAire LW Series solutions are ideal for facility owners and HVAC system designers striving to keep space humidity under control when air temperatures are low. The machine’s evaporator coils are engineered specifically for low ambient moisture removal, and components include user-definable timers that initiate defrost cycles of the evaporator coils if needed. ExpertAire LW Series solutions meet a wide range of operating conditions from 45-80°F, and come in capacities ranging from 3-15 tons.

ENGINELESS REFRIGERATION UNIT
Carrier Transicold introduced Model 35X direct-drive unit, which provides refrigeration for perishable and frozen cargoes for small- to medium-sized box trucks and large delivery vans. The 35X unit provides refrigeration capacity of 10,500 BTUs at 35°F, and includes an exterior-mounted condenser unit, a compressor that mounts to the truck engine and a narrow-profile SlimLine evaporator that fits tightly to the ceiling of the cargo area. The unit’s Cab Command 2 digital controller provides quick and easy set-point configuration, and enables the ability to program the unit for automatic defrost cycles. It also offers diagnostic capabilities and hour-meters to track usage for service interval planning.
GF Piping Systems’ COOL-FIT ABS Plus Piping System is a fully pre-insulated plastic piping system for secondary cooling and refrigeration that features energy-efficient, non-corroding, maintenance-free performance. Meanwhile, its Fuseal polypropylene corrosive waste piping system was specifically developed to handle corrosive waste and high temperatures in applications where traditional metal piping lacks the corrosion-resistant benefits of plastic piping.
