8.3.2   Heat dissipation when transporting refrigerated containers below deck Heat dissipation processes Heat dissipation using fresh air Heat dissipation using return air cooling processes Heat dissipation using water for cooling Heat dissipation using evaporative cooling processes
When transporting refrigerated containers on deck, heat dissipation rarely causes problems. However, if refrigerated containers are transported below deck, which is increasingly the case, the heat produced by the containers must be removed from the hold. Depending on the length of the journey, the types of containers used and the predominating cargo, it may be necessary to dissipate between 7 kW and 15 kW of heat per 40' container. At the moment three methods are used:
