-60ºC Tuna Storage

Tuna is a very valuable commodity and its essential that once caught it is properly stored and frozen to maintain the highest quality.

To ensure a good market value precautions are taken to prevent the deterioration of freshness, texture and taste through long-haul sea transportation.

Here at CRS we look no further than recommending the Thermo King SuperFreezer for such applications. It’s been the leader in the field since 1996 and is an exclusive option when looking for a container that can maintain a -60ºC temperature.

CRS has built up a fantastic partnership with ThermoKing and offer a range of cold storage solutions utilising their top of the range equipment.

How does it work?

Super Freezer uses a Cascade Refrigeration System in order to effectively reach deep frozen temperatures of -60ºC.

The system comprises of two single stage refrigerator systems that are separate. The contain different refrigerants and one cools down the air inside the units whilst the other extracts excess heat to the ambient air outside the container.

This way, temperature settings are reliably maintained throughout the entire journey.

Features include…
• Maintains cargo at -60°C in any ambient condition.
• Advanced MP-3000 Thermo King controller.
• Dual compressor cascade technology.
• Safety vacuum valve.

Commodities benefitting from this:

Tuna is just one of the commodities known to benefit from being transported at -60°C, others include swordfish, sea urchins, food cultures and pharmaceuticals. The Super Freezer boasts a fantastic storage environment to lock in the quality of caught Tuna, preserving it through carriage into the Japanese sushi and sashimi market.
