Who will install and setup the refrigerated container when it is delivered?

Almar can assist with technical on-site installation of the reefer containers (refrigerated containers) should this be required.

How can I maintain a refrigerated container?

The following basic steps can be taken to keep your refrigerated container in good working order:

Daily: Keep a twice daily record of the temperature on the control panel to ensure any variations are noted. Make sure the container is switched to a manual defrost cycle before entering the container.

Weekly: Wash out the condenser coil with a hose and ensure it is free of any debris.

Monthly: Ensure that no ice build-up is allowed to develop within the container – especially on the floor area and within the T Bar flooring – this may disrupt the airflow within the container and cause temperature fluctuations. A complete clean out and removal of ice may be called for.
