How To Decide Which Refrigerated Sprinter Van Is Best For You

Deciding which refrigerated sprinter van is the right kind for your business is an important task, but there simply is so many of them that it can seem overwhelming. In this blog, we will be putting you on the right direction in making the best possible decision by giving you the things to consider when shopping for a refrigerated sprinter van. We will explain the several different types of refrigerated sprinter vans that are available on the market and then explain their different types of defrosting systems.

So what are the various types of refrigerated sprinter vans?

Refrigerated sprinter vans, in general, differ in the methods they use to maintain their interior cool. But there are only four classifications for refrigeration. These are known as conversion types because of the stuff used to convert a normal van into a refrigerated sprinter van. The type that you will need will greatly depend on how cool you need to keep your products and how they need to be stored in the van.

Insulation-only Van Type
Looking On The Bright Side of Options

Insulation only has its cargo lined up with 50mm thick insulation made up of Styrofoam and/or polystyrene.

Chiller Conversion Van

This type has both the 50mm insulation and a chill refrigerator.

Semi Freezer Conversion Van Type

This type has a 75mm thick insulation and two types of refrigeration: reverse cycle or hot gas.

Full Freezer Conversion

The semi freezer and full freezer is quite the same – both has the same insulation and refrigeration option – but full freezer types have reinforced side and rear doors.

Now, what are the various ways for defrosting?

Going back to the descriptions we have mentioned earlier, the full freezer and semi freezer conversion types are equipped with refrigeration systems: either hot gas defrost or reverse cycle defrost – but there also exists a third type known as off cycle defrost. How are they defined, and how do they differ from one another?

Well, the cheapest type amongst all of them is the off cycle defrost. It is able to defrost via a timer, which guides its engine compressor when it should switch off. This method is inappropriate if you want to keep products at below 0?C temperature.

If you really need to maintain temperatures below 0?C, you are better off using the other two methods: reverse cycle defrost and hot gas defrost.

The reverse cycle defrost reverses the process of the roof condenser and the evaporator automatically and as necessarily that it is able defrost within seconds. Hot gas defrost on the other hand, as the term implies, makes use of an injection of hot gas into the system and that allows rapid defrosting. Both of these systems will suit semi-freezer and full-freezer conversions really well.
