Available Truck Types

Here are some possible variations of truck rentals in Fort Worth

Mechanical Reefer Box Trucks

Mechanical reefer box trucks, just as the name suggests, work automatically. During movement, a driven fan circulated air inside the box. This ensures a constant temperature and sometimes ice hatches should be left open, but this only depends on what had been transported. The mechanical reefer trucks work through heat convection where hot air rises then replaced by cold one that is cooled by ice. 

The refrigeration system here is run through diesel, so the period of time it runs is dependent on the diesel tank size. They are therefore economical since there is no motion required for the refrigerator to function.

Modern Reefer Box Trucks

With modern reefer box trucks, chilled air is released from the bottom air units through T-shaped decking. They are built to maintain a certain temperature range, even when the external temperature is extreme. They ensure a uniform and nonstop airflow through the whole load and maintain a perfect air exchange with the cargo being hauled. In addition to cooling the goods, these reefer box trucks can also be set to warm them up. Again, depending on the kind of goods, the temperatures can be raised to a good 30°C. Each commodity is different, so airflow requirements will be different depending on the transportation standards of each.
