In August 2012, representatives from the Swedish Defense Materiel Administration (Försvarets materielverk) visited York PA to review the refrigerated container system designed by Klinge Corporation.

The company was awarded a multi-year contract at the end of 2011 to design and produce a minimum of 60 refrigerated containers based on a standard 20-foot ISO container with a hook frame for HEMTT or PLS lift trucks.

This refrigerated container features integrated hydraulic rollers allowing for easy loading/unloading as well as a manually operated hydraulic pump. The pump enables the rollers to be lowered when loading or unloading and raised when the container is stationary.

The primary purpose of the 20-ft refrigerated container is to store and transport frozen food, refrigerated food, and dry groceries. Its interior is outfitted with shelving system for food storage and a fire extinguisher in case of emergency. The container has double doors as well as a wicket door that provides access to the interior without having to open the larger doors.

The refrigerated container prototype is scheduled for testing at the US Department Aberdeen Test Center this autumn. The equipment will undergo mobility testing in accordance with AECTP 400 to ensure the system can withstand transportation on roads of poor quality.

This container will also undergo radiated emission testing in accordance with MIL-STD-461F, RE102 as well as radiated susceptibility testing in accordance with MIL-STD-461F, RS103.

Jason Flynn, Klinge’s sales manager, said, “The equipment plays a critical role in the Swedish Armed Forces provisioning system. and as such, our refrigerated containers will ensure food is kept at the required temperature.”
