How does refrigerated transport work?
The pressure inside liquefies the gas and the liquid refrigerant gives off heat to the body of the compressor and the surrounding air. The heat from the liquid flows to the walls of the tubing and then outside to the attached fins. The fins present more surface area to cool outside air drawn through the condenser fan.
How do refrigerated vans work?
Fridge vans have a very similar mode of operation to household refrigeration systems. They use an insulated airtight compartment, and a condenser system to remove the heat from the inside of the system. The refrigeration system works by removing heat and dissipating it outside.
Is a refrigerated van insulated?
The short answer to this is, yes. Refrigeration units inside fridge vans use a similar technology. Absorb heat in an insulated airtight compartment and dissipate that heat outside of that compartment. The insulation used is one of the most crucial parts of the whole operation.
