Specialized transport refrigeration manufacturer Klinge Corporation has completed the first article test reefer unit for the US Army Joint Service Expandable TriCon Refrigerated Container System (JSERCS) project.
The unit will refrigerate an expandable Triple Container (Tri-Con) system that expands from 1/3 the size of a normal 20-foot container to nearly the full size of a 20-ft container. Klinge’s unit will provide dual temperature refrigeration in ambient temperatures ranging from –25° to +125° F. The temperature, cooling capacity, and power consumption of the reefer unit will be tested at a government facility in accordance with MIL-PRF-32335.

Klinge’s reefer features a movable and removable insulated partition to separate the two temperature zones. The design allows for thawing of a portion of the food while keeping the remaining food frozen for later use. JSERCS will be the next generation of advanced refrigerated TriCons for the US Department of Defense’s Combat Feeding Directorate. The system will be used in remote areas for field feeding of troops. Founded as a spin-off of the Transport Refrigeration Equipment department of York International, Klinge has been producing refrigeration equipment at its manufacturing facilities and headquarters in York PA for 29 years. The company’s customized designs offer commercial and military customers alternatives to standard, mass-produced refrigerated containers that often cannot meet requirements of harsh environments or stringent testing.
